Product Description
Ladybug THEMED DIFFERENTIATED PLAY DOUGH MATH CENTER for PreK-1 includes a collection of four variations of counting mats for the hands-on development of number sense and counting skills.

Intentionally created to be SIMPLE & FREE of excessive clipart – Ink/Printer Friendly!

Designed for and used with my own students who have special learning needs. These were created because I just couldn't find exactly what I was looking for online - I needed something that I could differentiate for a wide variety of levels in my classroom!

Common Core aligned with Counting & Cardinality standards and ideal for special education and RTI programs!
