### Description

Here’s a set of donut themed math activities, deliciously perfect for preschool and kindergarten. The focus is on numeral formation, numeral recognition 0-10, cardinality, counting (to 10, 20, 30, or 40), comparing quantities, and determining one less and one more than a given quantity or number. You’ll find a range of skills and a variety of activities that will help you to provide individualized instruction. Use these activities in small instructional groups or as independent math centers. Choose color or minimal color and black/ gray/ white options.

Be sure you have dry erase markers, play dough, dice, spinner hands or pencils/ paperclips, and counters (both 1/2 and 1 inch) on hand.

Count to Recognize Donut Mats

These easy to prepare full-page number mats 0-10 are designed to develop skills in counting, numeral recognition, and numeral formation. These are, intentionally, very basic mats. Each mat has a numeral along with a corresponding number of donuts to count.

The numerals have green, yellow, and red dots along with arrows to guide correct formation. They are perfect for finger tracing, using dry erase markers, or play dough. Both counting the items and naming the numeral while engaged in forming it help to develop recognition.

There are mats in both full-color and minimal color. Your students can just count the pictures or represent the quantities with buttons, craft pebbles, pompoms, erasers, play dough balls, or most any one-inch or smaller counter.

This resource also includes a page of 35 donuts in both color and black/ white, which can be printed to use as counters. With younger children or children with disabilities, three-dimensional counters would be a better choice.

Delicious Donut Number Mats 0-10

These easy to prepare full-page donut box number mats, 0-10, for preschool and kindergarten math, are designed to develop skills in numeral recognition, numeral formation, counting quantities, and cardinality. Each mat has a numeral along with an empty donut box ten frame.

The numerals have green, yellow, and red dots along with arrows to guide correct formation. They are perfect for finger tracing, using dry erase markers, or play dough. Both counting the items and naming the numeral while engaged in forming it help to develop recognition.

The number mats are available in two formats, full-color or minimal color (dots on numbers). Quantities in the donut box may be represented with buttons, craft pebbles, pompoms, erasers, play dough balls, or most any one-inch or smaller counter.

This resource also includes a page of 80 donuts (color or black/ white), which can be used as counters.

Donut Counting Grids

This is an easy to prepare partner or small group activity for preschool and kindergarten that uses dice or a spinner and counters to focus on subitizing (dice only), counting objects with one-to-one correspondence, and comparing quantities.

To play, roll a die or spin. Count and collect the corresponding number of counters and place them on your grid starting with the first space. Take turns with your partner. After each turn or 2, count and compare. Ask “How many do you have?” and “Who has the most/ fewest?”

I have included vocabulary/ concept cards that can be placed by the corresponding grid. The activity is over when one student has filled a grid. More advanced or older students can complete the comparison recording sheet with a partner. The number grid to 40 can be used as a support, if needed. I have also included a vocabulary/ concept wall chart.

Donuts in My Box One Less One More

This versatile math resource can be used to teach, practice, or review the concept of one less and one more than a given quantity or number. There is a set of half-page mats, in color and black/ white, with quantities of donuts in a box 1-10. The quantities are presented in a different order on the black/ white mats so you can use both, if desired.

Students use counters (cereal, mini-erasers, pony beads, small buttons) to show one less and one more than the given quantity in the appropriate columns. There is space to write the numeral that represents each quantity. A recording sheet is included. I also included an open-ended half-page mat. Pick a card, roll a die, or spin to find your number.

You’ll find a partner or small group game along with 2 follow-up worksheets (with the same format). There is a handy helper number strip showing quantity with a sliding card to highlight your selected number, one less, and one more; to provide support as needed.

Please note that the counters that will fit on these mats are small. Be sure your students have the necessary fine motor skills.
