Spring Counting Mats
Make learning to count fun and engaging with these free Spring counting mats. Kids will practice a variety of skills when they work on these counting mats. The skills include:
- number identification
- 1:1 correspondence
- fine motor skills
Preparing the Spring Counting Mats
Setting up this activity is quite simple. After downloading the resource, print and laminate the pages. You may cut the pages or leave 2 mats on a page. Another option is to place the mats in sheet protector pockets.
Ideas for Use
Make these counting mats reusable by laminating them or placing them in sheet protectors. This way kids can also use dry-erase markers and can reuse the mats!
Offer kids fun manipulatives to use with these mats. Play dough is always a great way to get kids engaged and working with their hands. After tracing and counting the images, have kids roll small play dough balls and place them on the ten frame. To reinforce counting have kids push down on the play dough to count again after placing the balls on the mat.
Do your kids love mini erasers? Mine sure do! Have your little learner place mini erasers on the ten frame to show each number.
Extend the Activity
You can also use these Spring Counting Mats for practicing how to make 10. Kids will identify the number of the mat and count the number of pictures. Kids place balls of play dough on the ten frame. Next, kids will count how many empty squares there are. Using a different color, kids place balls of play dough on the remaining squares.
