Print as many sets of these mats as you need. Laminate the mats or use dry erase pocket inserts for easy prep! Be sure that you have the play dough and dry erase markers ready at the table for the kids to use.
Numbers to Ten Play Dough MatsUse these mats to help kids develop number sense and strengthen their counting skills. These mats can be used in a number of ways and can also be differentiated. Have the kids work on their fine motor skills by using pom poms or playdough to build ice cream scoops on the mats. They will also trace the number digit and then cover the ten-frames with counters or even dough to show the number on each mat.
This game can also be played as a group, or as a competitive game played between groups. Give each group the same mat and have the kids build their scoops to match the corresponding numbers. After they’re done, check their mats and the group with the mat that is correctly filled wins!
