If You Give A Mouse A Cookie.. Math Centers


Well friends.. I did it. I listed my first item on Teachers Pay Teachers!

I NEVER set out to sell my items.. I have enough on my plate between teaching and my Doodle Bugs Paper business.

But, I had made these centers and they were using Cheryl Seslar graphics. So, I bought her Teacher’s License and can now sell things with her graphics.. and since I own the license I can now offer 1-2 freebies a month. I plan on taking advantage of that!

So, I set up a seller’s account at TpT and I have listed my first item.. well, actually I listed 2 {but the first one is a freebie I already posted on my blog!}

Next week will be all about If You Give A Mouse A Cookie.. and the other Laura Numeroff books with my first graders.

You will be able to download all the recording sheets at the end of this post.

So, I created a few math centers …


These number cards can be used two ways..

(1) Students can order the four numbers from least to the greatest from each card.


(2) Students can look at the card and write just the least and greatest number.


Next up is a set of math facts- addition and subtraction cards.

These cards are not numbered so if you plan on using them in a center with a recording sheet they will need to be numbered.


These cookie cards turned out really cute! Students can count the cookies lots of ways. We will probably count ours by 5’s but they can be counted by 1s. 2’s, 5’s, 10’s. etc..


This is a set of number word cards zero-twenty.

Students can put them in order then write the word beside the number on the recording sheet.

I actually only do four centers so I will be using this as an extra activity for early finishers without the recording sheet with my students.


This is a set of 30 number cards. I am going to let my students work together and put them in order from least to greatest then they have to write the numbers in order on their recording sheet.


We haven’t really talked a whole lot about even and odd in my class yet- but these cards could be used to sort even/odd.  There are 18 odd numbers and 12 even numbers in the set.

So, if you are interested in buying these you can click below.

My picture previews on the listing are sideways.. why?? Any veteran TpT sellers that can help with that.. please do!

And the free recording sheets are  also below.
