Our Pizza restaurant is one of our most popular centers during our Tools of the Mind restaurant theme make believe play time. These counting play mats are great for teaching number quantity, number recognition, and ordering numbers from 1-10. Just print out the math mats and topping counters on cardstock. Cut out the counters. Laminate the mats, and enjoy! This is a great activity to review counting or an excellent center assessment tool. Incorporating math directly into current dramatic theme play is a great way to reinforce and elevate exposure to basic skill development. Students can even complete the mats and serve them to waiting customers. Customers could check and count to see if the chef is correct!
