Polka Dot Beach Fun





Here is another opportunity for students to count dot stickers but I like having them in a ten grid to practice the skill of counting on. So what I want to hear them saying is ... "Ten...eleven, twelve... We want our kids to recognize that they can start with 10 when the grid is filled in and continue to count the remaining dots. This will get them ready for first grade. Many of my students have a difficult time with this and need lots of practice. I also included a record sheet so their work can be checked. Obviously, the cards can reflect the theme you are working on. Another math activity...MWS  possibility! I used stickers but do I dare remind you of those dot markers again!

I love these my 5 year old is working on this before she heads to kindergarten since she finished her kindergarten math book already.

I need to get something like this to do with her.
