Here is a fun manipulative (I wish I knew what to call it), in which the students look through the clear heart to find a number, write it on their paper, and then place that number of buttons on a 30 frame mat. Here is how I made it:
I used thick cardboard to write numbers 21-26 on the front and back.
I filled my clear, plastic heart (from the heavenly dollar bin at Target), with pom poms and different beads.
Once the hearts were made, I used my 30 frame mat and worksheet from two different projects we did in February. The students would shake the heart (which they loved!!!), spot a number and write it on their paper.
After the number was written down, they used the 30 frame mat to count out that same number of buttons. This was great because I could sit with them while they were counting and make sure they were counting correctly.
