Preschool Math Center Setup
For this activity you will need:
If you don’t have the materials needed, don’t sweat! You can get it delivered to your doorstep really quickly with Amazon Prime. You can get a 30-day free trial here.
In this preschool math center, your students will practice number recognition to 20.
You could print the pages full size and laminate them. Place a bowl of tokens in the center of a small group table and have the mats laid out around the table for students to identify 1 of each number for example. You can assign a colored token per student or adapt it into a team game.
Alternatively, you could print them smaller and hold the cards together on a metal ring for use in as an individual preschool math center where the student would put an x as they find each number. If the cards are laminated, you’ll need dry-erase markers.
There are many ways these mats could be used and I would love to know what ideas you come up with!
If you’re looking to go digital, I also have this game available as Boom Cards which can be used with Seesaw, Google Classroom and other distance learning platforms. Grab these internet task cards here.
