Preschoolers will practice number recognition and counting to 20 with this set of butterfly ten frames.
Print and laminate the ten frames. Grab some playdough, and your kids are all set for some hands-on math perfect for your spring and summer lessons.
Preparing the Activity
Print, laminate, and cut apart the ten frame cards. Grab some playdough, and you’re all set!
Completing the Activity
Preschoolers will choose a math mat to work on. They will identify the number in the top left corner of the mat. Then, they’ll count the flowers in the ten frame.
Add a fine motor component to the activity by having children roll a playdough ball, and having them place those balls in the ten frame on top of the flowers.
Then, have them count one more time as they “smoosh” each playdough ball!
