Counting playdough mats
First, print the playdough mats on color and laminate them for durability (playdough has an effect on paper.). Alternatively, you could place them in sheet protectors and then just switch out which one you are working on.

- On each mat, you will find one large number. This is great for number formation. Your child can form the number out of playdough and then move onto the counting part of the mat. Then they can add the correct number of balls of playdough or raindrop shapes to the number frames. Then they can they make their own raindrops or balls out of playdough; we used blue play dough; placing the correct number of raindrops around the duck and holding the umbrella. They could also use blue sequins instead of play dough.
- Alternatively, if you have laminated these mats, your child can use them to practice their handwriting as well. Using a dry-erase marker, you child and trace the number, draw the correct number of raindrops and then place the correct number of a dots or crosses in the ten frame.
- They could also use math counters, cut out shapes, foam stickers or game board pieces on these mats as well.
- Once they ready to move on, you could use these mats for simple addition and subtraction practice. Using two different colours of play dough, have your child create problems around the snowman and in the ten frames, for example on mat number 6 they could add two blue raindrops and four blue balls to equal six.
