Dot cards can be used as a quick activity during any time of the day or as a Math Work Station! Students can either: match the dot card to a numeral card, flash the cards to each other and quickly identify the cards, count the dots and identify the numbers or make numbers using the dot cards.
There is two sets of dot cards: plain black, and red and blue cards. The red and blue cards can be used to make numbers. For example, if a student has a dot card with the number 5 they can say "3 and 2 make 5".
