These easy to prepare fall themed full-page number mats, 0-10, for preschool and kindergarten math, are designed to develop skills in counting, numeral recognition, and numeral formation. These are, intentionally, very basic mats. The 4 sets of mats have a numeral along with a corresponding number of items to count; sunflower seeds, apples, leaves, and pumpkin seeds. 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 also represent the quantities with seeds, buttons, apple or leaf scatter/ gems, craft pebbles, pompoms, mini-erasers, playdough balls, or most any counter you have on hand. This resource also includes pages of 50 sunflower seeds, 63 apples, 28 leaves, and 100 pumpkin seeds, in both color and black/ white, which can be printed to use as counters. With younger children or children with disabilities, three- dimensional manipulatives would be a better choice. These count to recognize mats are ideal for use as either an intervention or resource activity or as an independent math center.
