Here are 10 fall-themed number recognition mats for a math center! The pictures on each acorn give you (and the kids) a "hint" about how to use it - but here's a brief description:
Print and laminate 1 or more sets of these for your kids.
They will need 1 mat at a time, a dry erase marker, and unifix cubes (or some other kind of manipulative).
"Write!" box - trace the numbers (my kids say them out loud in a silly voice as they trace them).
"Draw!" box - use the 10 frame to draw the number. The example shows dots, but my kids draw hearts, smilies, starts, etc., whatever they can think of!
"Make!" - Use manipulatives to make then number. We use unifix cubes because it helps with fine motor skills to put the blocks together; however, you could use whatever you want!
