I hope you are enjoying your summer! This fun counting activity is easy to assemble. Simply print (laminate for durability) and cut out the pieces for play. It can easily be transformed into a play dough mat! Rolling play dough balls is a great fine motor activity.
To play children flip over a card, and add the correct amount of "beach ball counters to the 10-frame on the mat.
Preschoolers love to pretend to cook! This printable math grilling set will have them serving up lots of learning fun. This activity pack helps preschoolers develop a deeper understanding of numbers, beyond basic number memorization and counting aloud. While using this set, preschoolers are learning 1:1 correspondence, numeral identification, subitizing, number sense, as well as basic addition and subtraction.
I love creating learning centers on a budget. I recently ran across some fun St. Patrick's pails in the Dollar Spot at Target and some shamrock foam stickers at my local Jo-Ann craft store. I knew they would make fun preschool math centers.
To compliment these low cost items, I created a set of FREE set 1-10 shamrock counting cards that can be used to create several different preschool math centers. Do you have a suggestion on how to use these cards? Be sure to share it in the comments!
Play dough is a staple in many early learning environments. Preschoolers love to manipulate play dough in a variety of ways. In addition to being tons of fun, playing with play dough is a super workout for little fingers.
Use these counting mats with your favorite dough recipe, or your favorite math counters such as pom poms or mini erasers. As a bonus, this activity helps build both math, and motor skills.
