Preparing the Christmas Counting Mats

This Christmas math center requires little preparation. Download the resource, print, and laminate the pages. You can either cut the pages or leave 2 mats on a page. You may also place the mats in sheet protector pockets.

To reuse these counting mats you can laminate them or place them in dry-erase pockets. This way kids can also use dry-erase markers and can use the mats over and over!

Kids can use fun manipulatives like play dough. Kids can trace and count the images, then roll and place small play dough balls on the ten frame.

To fill in the ten-frame, you can also use other Christmas-themed manipulatives like holiday mini erasers, mini jingle bells, or gumdrops.

These Christmas Counting Mats are also great for learning to make 10. Kids identify the number on the mat and count the number of pictures. Next, they place the corresponding number of counters on the ten frame. After, they count how many empty squares there are. Using a different color counter, kids place them on the remaining squares.

You can even have kids write the equations for each number once they have filled in the ten frame. It is a fun visual way to practice addition fact fluency within 10.
