These are great mats to support beginning addition and subtraction concepts. Either print and use, or print and laminate.
Students add counters to each dinosaur on the page, then use the equation model to write out their addition or subtraction equation.
This could be played with a set number of counters (make addition equations that equal 10), or you could roll a dice twice and put on counters that match the number on the dice.
