Print Your Own Ocean Math Mats: Created at the request of a kindergarten teacher friend to go with her new Under the Sea counters. Because the counters come in two sizes, and she has the larger size, I created two sizes of mats for the numbers 11 – 20 … both larger and smaller mats to make sure there would be enough room for the students to work, but smaller mats in case the teacher had smaller counters and wanted smaller mats to save on paper/ink and room. So you have a choice on the mats you choose for numbers 11 – 20. (full page size or half page size)
Mats should be printed on cardstock, laminated and cut out for durability. You can even use the cover page for your label for your storage envelope/file.
Math work mats are great for giving students defined work spaces to work. They make wonderful activities for Centers/Stations, small group or independent work. They give your students that extra little “wiggle room” that they don’t get when doing traditional paper pencil activities.
