How it works: Halloween Number Counting Match Game

 

The place mats work well for a differentiated set of ages. My girls are 3 and 6 and both love learning with these in their own way.

Both my girls love using Halloween themed mini erasers, little balls of play dough, and using a dry erase marker on a dry erase pocket for practicing with these.

Miss 3 enjoys practicing her fine motor skills by making sure each of the erasers are within the center of each of the squares. 

 

She may not know the numbers she is learning after 1-2-3 but she’ll practice her fine motor with those extra numbers using the erasers.

Miss 3 also enjoys calling out the different colors she sees on the place mats. It’s a wonderful time we get together to learn and have fun!

I will often call out the numbers so she says that each has their own sound and name. 

 

What other fun ways can you think about using these with a preschooler?

One of the wonderful things about 10 frames is that when learning about skip counting, it’s just so simple!

Miss 6 can actually see that if she’s skip counting by 10’s, it’s easy to see that 10+10 equals 20 by way of the ten frames. 

 

We absolutely love these for learning about skip counting. 

 

Would you like me to create one with ten 10 frames for a much more advanced approach to teaching your littles? Please leave me a comment so I can take this into consideration and get to work 🙂

 

Miss 6 enjoys all that miss 3 does and a little more. She uses these for learning to add and subtract with the erasers or within a dry erase pocket.
