These easy to prepare ocean themed full page number mats, 0-20, for preschool and kindergarten math, are designed to develop skills in number recognition, number formation, counting quantities, and cardinality. They are ideal for use as either an intervention or resource activity or as an independent math center. The numbers 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. Naming the number while engaged in forming it helps to develop number recognition. This revised edition has mats in both full-color and minimal color. Quantities in the ocean may be represented with plastic sea animal counters or beads, craft pebbles, or play dough balls. This resource includes pages of 48 crabs, sea turtles, and starfish, in both color and black/ white, which can be used as counters. With younger children or children with disabilities, three-dimensional manipulatives would be a better choice.

This resource was crafted by Judy, a teacher with a master’s degree and more than 35 years teaching experience.
