Use these Making Five mats in your small group math lessons. Students place a number of counters from 0 - 5 on the mat and then write the amount they have and and how many more they need to make five. The mats progress from a five frame to a more difficult mat with randomly placed squares. The mats include sentences to encourage proper math language.
Perfect for EL students and early readers.
I use these with my first grade math intervention students.
