Grab this One to One Correspondence Activity to work on number recognition, counting, and one to one correspondence. It is low prep and perfect for winter time.
It is winter time, and though we are just having rainy days after rainy days, I’m loving creating snowmen activities. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not wishing for snow. In Georgia, snow shuts the city down and since we really don’t have clothes that are designed for snow play….we get stuck indoors.
But January and snow seem to go together, so here is a fun snowman one to one correspondence activity.
Prep – Work
This is an easy one to prep, and in just a few minutes you will be ready to go.
- First, Print off pictures of the snowmen and cut out. These will be placed in large learning cubes.
- Next, print off the pages with the numbers. Each student will need one of these pages.
- Finally, grab some Do-A-Dot markers or game markers.
Now you are ready to go!!!

The first page focuses on numbers 1 – 6, and this is more of a number recognition activity, though you could add in the one to one correspondence.
We have been working on counting and number recognition for quite a while now, and finally, my little girl is making progress.
She is getting where she can look at a number of items and tell me how many without counting….but that is only to about five.
So for the first sheet, we simply rolled the die, she told me how many, and then we found that number on the sheet.
I wanted to use the sheet over and over, so we just covered the number up with a block. But you could have the cover up the number with a Do-A- Dot marker if that is more fun for your kiddo.
One to One Correspondence Activity
The next sheet was a little harder for her.
My little girl is not able to look at the pictures and tell me how many there are. She has to do some counting, and with this comes one-to-one correspondence.
Once again, she would roll the die, but this time I would help her count.
We talked about starting at the top and not jumping around so that we would not miss a snowman, or count a snowman twice.
The first couple of times I guided her finger as we counted together, but after that I let her try on her own.
Sometimes she would get it on her own, and sometimes I would have to go back and help her count again.
We will be doing this one to one correspondence activity multiple times and continue working on this skill…..but I’m happy to see the small progress she is making!!!
