Pizza Math Craftivity

"When the moon hits your eye, like a big pizza pie, that's AMORE!!!!!!"  We are learning about Italy this week during summer school, so I made a Pizza Craftivity that aligns with the Common Core Math and Language Arts Standards for Kindergarten (wow, that's a mouthful!) The students get to decorate their pizza with different toppings, then they count them and write the number!  They also can trace the printed sentences to get some language arts in too.  Here it is...



Pick up the Pizza Craftivity on my TpT store for $2.


 I made two different printing versions depending on your students' abilities.  Here is a version that the students can just write the number.  You can frontload the students by reviewing the linguistic pattern "I see..." in a pocket chart with a picture of the different toppings, so they can read the sentences on their own.



Here are the traceable sentences so the students can practice printing.



These are close-ups of the sentences (sorry they are sideways)... :)







The following Kindergarten Common Core Standards are addressed:
Math:
K.CC.3. Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
K.CC.4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.5. Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects.

Language Arts:
RF.K.1. Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print.
RF.K.3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.

  2. Adorable!!! As always! I love how you have everything aligned to CC. My big old common core binder has been my BFF this summer as I go through it and try to match/include/eliminate stuff for next year! :) Nice work on the cute pizzas!!!
