Directions & Suggestions for use:

*I chose to print mine double sided so that when they are in a center students could flip the mat over and try a different number on the back
*Decide if you want to use store-bought or homemade playdough
*To make the playdough seen in the pictures please refer to the recipe and directions included in the pack
*use as a math center or in skilled math groups for added practice and review
*Students roll playdough to form numbers
*Students make ‘cookies’ to fill the ten frame based on the number on the card
*Students use dry erase markers to practice writing the number (they can also trace the ‘playdough number’ if you prefer than for students to make the number in playdough
Makes a great math center! Use it at different times throughout the year to review and practice new skills!
