Counting Spots on Dalmatian Dogs using Dot Stickers

Print one ‘Dalmatian puppy template’ for each student. Provide dot stickers, dot markers, mini erasers, etc. The students will then count the dots in each section on the puppy, and begin to cover the dots. 

You will find that some kids will start to place the stickers randomly on the dots on the dog. That’s ok because this activity also works on their fine motor skills as they pinch to remove the stickers and place them into their correct spots on the puppy.

There is also another version of the dog template with no dots for more advanced kids. 

This task can easily be differentiated with your learners. Have the younger kids work on placing the stickers onto the dots and the more advanced learners working on their counting skills on each section.
