Fishing Penguins Count Their Catch

I have a new freebie for you today and it was created for a request from one of my group members.  She wanted a counting activity with penguins, so here it is!!

These are a set of counting mats from 0-20.  They feature adorable fishing penguins.  To make it fun and rewarding, use Goldfish Crackers to count out the number of fish that each penguin caught.  If you don’t want to do that, I included some printable Goldfish Crackers or you could use another manipulative such as fish erasers.  Each mat has the numeral and number word.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the mats in this set….

Counting Apples

Since this month starts fall/autumn and I had a request in my group, I decided to get a jump on it and start making things to share.  The request was for some counting mats with apples.

I’ve come up with Counting Apples for the Apple Tree and I went with the number word on the tree and the numeral on the basket.  That number of apples will be placed on the mat.  This activity will work on a couple of skills for little ones.  These mats are for counting 0-25.

Dino-Mite

I’m currently on Spring Break with my daughter and enjoying a little down time. My promise to her was that I wouldn’t be online during this time so that we can do whatever we want on a whim and just have a real break!!

I did want to be able to share this week though, so I’ve scheduled a couple blog posts so that you all can download some goodies while I’m off having a good time!! That said, I had a huge issue trying to upload my files to 4Shared, so if you go to download them, they may….or may not be there. If they’re not, please leave me a comment and when I’m online at the end of Spring Break, I’ll see if I can fix any of the errors.

The dinosaur lover in your class or at home should love these!!  I have Dino-Mite Counting, which has the player placing the numeral on the mat.  They will then place that many dino tokens on the mat.  Please note, there is a spelling error in the directions.  It says numBeral instead of numeral.  I don’t have the font on this computer, so I couldn’t fix it and I don’t have the time or access to do it right now.  Please just mark it out or when I return, I’ll correct it right away.

There’s also Dino-Mite Numbers, where the player places the numeral and the number word on the mat.  This strictly works on the skill of being able to match and correspond them correctly.  Both mats are for 0 to 25.
