As the countdown begins, each animal you meet reveals WHY they did not take the cookie.

Storybook Activity


Download the FREE counting activity below, “How many Cookies are in the Cookie Jar?”.

Practice counting and writing numbers one to eight.

Get creative by coloring the jars too!

The key focus of this activity is to “count sets” in order to develop an understanding of cardinality.

This means that when you count the items in a set, the last number counted tells you the SIZE of that set.

Are there LOTS of cookies in the jar or just a few?

You also realize the number you count stays “constant” in that set.

Meaning no cookies are being added or taken away from the jar.
