valentine theme ten frame number mat with conversation heart border, ten frame large heart, number one word and traceable numeral one with heart mini erasers for preschool math

This time around we used mini cupcake erasers that we found at the Target Dollar Spot to build the numbers.

By combining, one-to-one correspondence, numerals, words, and ten-frames on one activity, kids have the opportunity to make connections between the different formats of the numbers.

Have your child build the numbers in multiple ways. Then, she can trace the numbers and the words with her fingers to help internalize the shapes of the letters and numbers. We have also created the numbers with play dough and traced them with dry-erase markers/crayons.

Rolling out the play dough and picking up the tiny objects makes this activity a great opportunity to work on fine-motor skills as well.

I have several different themes for the number mats, so that you can choose the ones that fit your needs the most. You can choose from trees, candy jars and Christmas trees. And they are all free.

We have used play dough and candies along with pom poms and these cute heart mini erasers.
