Our math focus this week is on making sets of numbers 1 - 5 and counting the objects in each set.
For some hands on practice, I made fall theme counting mats for the children to use during our small group time. The children match counting cubes to each shape on the mat (apples, pumpkins, leaves) and practiced identifying the numbers and counting the objects. For an added challenge, I had the children sort and use counting cubes in the color that matched the objects on their mat
(ex. green cubes on the mat with the green apples).
Here are the mats in action!
(Did you notice I'm short one brown block and one red block??)
The mats are now available in my Teachers Notebook store - HERE
