Printable Math Game

How are your students progressing in their counting skills so far this year? It is quite the undertaking challenge isn’t it? We know that counting and number recognition are important concepts for young learners. But here’s the problem, we have a class full of kids all at different levels. Some students have no problems with number recognition. While others struggle to make the connection. Some children are ready to move on with math and others struggle to put numerals in the right order.

Winter Math for kindergarteners

Still there is one thing for sure. Every single one of our students can benefit from a lot of practice. And it is particularly helpful if that process involves some hands-on learning.

While it seems simple, the process of learning to count is quite complex. In fact, it brings together many skills and rules that must all be internalized. Fortunately, most our students will learn this process without too much difficulty. All they need is the opportunity to practice over and over.

As I’m sure you are aware, children learn best when they are playing. A math center provides the opportunity for children to learn while they play. So, we have created a fun math activity. It is simple game to help children practice counting and number recognition.

Snowman Mats

Take a peek at our FREE snowman count and cover mats. This printable set features 4 snowman themed count and cover mats and a set of number cards from1-10. We made one set in color, but there is a black and white version for those without color printers.

We designed the number cards for concrete learners. Numbers are an abstract concept that can be hard for young learners to grasp. They might be able to memorize the numerals, but that only takes them so far. The cards provide the opportunity for children to count the number of snowflakes.

Use these count and cover mats

  • In a math center
  • For early finishers.

Children can do the puzzles independently or work with a partner. You might also direct parents to this post and encourage them to print a set for extra practice at home

Setting Up The Snowman Count And Cover Mats

Materials Needed

  • Printable file (below)
  • Cardstock
  • Small manipulative such as buttons, pompoms or mini erasers.
  • Laminator (optional)
  • Small Plastic tweezers (optional)

Print counting mats and number cards onto cardstock.  Next, Laminate the pages for durability if you wish and cut apart the number cards.

How to Use the Count and Cover Mat

  1. Shuffle the number cards and arrange them face down.
  2. Give students with a count and cover mat and 20 manipulatives of choice.
  3. Turn over a number card. Encourage the children to count the snowflakes and say the number aloud. Direct them to locate the corresponding numbers on the count and cover mat. Each number is represented twice.
  4. Place a manipulative over each number. If you wish, use small plastic tweezers to place the manipulatives on the mat. It is a sneaky way to add in some fine motor practice.
  5. Repeat until all the cards have been counted and the mat is completely covered.

These count and cover mats are quick and easy to put together. They are a great activity for students starting to work on counting and numeral recognition.
