On October 6th, the day after my birthday, I had surgery and beat cancer! Woohoo!!! I wanted to celebrate with a FREE product (this download) and a 20% off sale through October 13, 2015. Staying busy takes my mind of my sore and itchy incision. :)
Thanks for your interest in my FREE Ghost Counting Mat (1-25). This download contains two versions of my ghost themed counting mats: color or b/w, with or without numerals . Choose which version meets the needs of your students. This free download contains 4 printable pages in all.
Students use candy corn, Halloween mini erasers from the dollar store, spider rings, colorful puff-pom balls, or other small manipulatives to count and match one manipulative per circle or number on the mat.
Assembly is super simple – no to low prep, depending on how you wish to use them.
Black & white pages can be printed & used as counting mats, recording sheets, and coloring sheets for fast finishers.
Print the counting mat pages (choose color or black and white) and laminate (or slide into page protector).
If manipulatives are ending up everywhere but the mat, try placing the mat(s) on a large fast food/restaurant tray or cookie sheet for each student. That usually does the trick for students unable to figure out space boundaries on their own.
I also use black & white copies as counting/number assessments.
