Mouse Counting Mats 1-20
These Mouse counting mats are a wonderful resource for learning to count this summer or for any season, really! They are hands-on, engaging and effective and provide the learning fun of numbers 1-20.
My girls love using counting mats for many types of learning activities. These are versatile and can work with different ages.
My oldest is in kindergarten and can practice her skip counting by working with even and odd numbers. She can also practice counting by 5’s and 10’s place. My youngest is almost 4, and counting from 1-5 works well for her. I can also add a manipulative per their request to make learning fun!
Another favorite of ours for the summer are rainbow counting mats and alphabet mat activity. My girls love colorful things so they definitely work out great!
How to use the Mouse Counting Mats
My kids enjoy math mats because they are engaging! They love working with different erasers and manipulatives we already own to create a new scene by using their imagination!
The mouse math mats go along perfectly with any mouse books you own or check out at the library. Pair it along with a story and accentuate your child’s learning experience.
There are a variety of ways you can use these! One is using these as playdough mats. Roll small balls of playdough in your hand and use them for counting.
These mouse math mats work well for learning addition and subtraction, skip counting, numbers 1-10, numbers 11-20.. What other ideas can you come up with?
You can also try a few different manipulatives such as pom poms, playdough (as mentioned earlier), paint on fingers for counting, mini erasers, chocolate chips (as we did).
Add in a jumbo plastic tweezers and turn this math mat into a fine motor activity!
Insert them into a Dry Erase Pocket or laminate them for added durability and protection so you can reuse these over and over again! You can use a dry erase marker by securing it this way and make learning fun!
