Here are 11 8.5"x11" St. Patrick's Day-themed number recognition mats for a math center! The pictures in each box give you (and the kids) a "hint" about how to use it - and there is a directions page in the download - but here's a brief description:
Print and laminate 1 or more sets of these for your kids. I recommend printing on the "borderless" setting, if your computer will allow it.
They will need 1 mat at a time, a dry erase marker, play doh, and unifix cubes (or other manipulative).
"Write" box - use a dry erase marker to trace the numbers (my kids say them out loud in a silly voice as they trace them).
"Mold" box - roll play doh "snakes" and bend them to create the numeral inside the outlines.
"Build" - Use unifix cubes (or other manipulative) to make a tower using the right number of blocks.
"Color" - Use a dry erase marker to count and color the correct number of shamrocks.
