Looking for a fun way to help your kinders with counting and number sense? This pack holds 5 different centers AND a bonus craftivity all with the theme of counting sheep.
Here's what is included:
These mats can be used stand alone or with the included task card center. There are 3 included, one without a tens frame, one with 1 tens frame, and one with 2 tens frames for easy differentiation and future use.
COUNTING TASK CARDS:
Students draw a card and count that many sheep (sheep pieces included, cotton balls work, too!). This can be paired with the counting mats included if desired. Save my ink printing option also included.
SKIP COUNTING DRY ERASE:
These are dry erase cards designed for you to laminate or to place in plastic sheets. Students fill in the sheep for the missing number in the skip counting pattern! Students can practice counting by 1's, 2's, 3's, and 5's with this low prep center. Optional recording sheet included.
MISSING NUMBER PUZZLES:
Students practice what comes before and after in this spin on a classic puzzle. Students grab a long card and find the small card that fits into the missing number's space! Optional recording sheet included.
This can be used in a couple of different ways. As a center, you can have the pieces cut and laminated for students to piece together. Blackline versions are also included if you'd like for your students to color, cut, and glue the pieces back in order onto construction paper. Both are included for variety to meet your needs.
BONUS SHEEP CRAFTIVITY:
Using cotton balls, students count and glue onto sheep templates and construction paper (or a provided background).
