After getting almost 20 inches of snow dumped on us this week, I think I’m done with winter. I’m not sure that the weather agrees with me (we’ll see what the groundhog says tomorrow…). My kids, however, have been loving the snow and have spent hours making forts and sledding down the huge mound of snow from all my shoveling efforts. So it’s a great time to use these free printable snowman ten-frame number mats to practice counting with my preschooler. She absolutely loves snow and I think that she would live in an igloo if she could.
Materials needed for the Snowman Ten-Frame Number Mats:
Dry-erase crayon or dry-erase marker
These number mats are very quick prep! All you need to do is print and laminate them.
2 versions are included for easy differentiation. One version has the correct number of spaces filled in on the ten-frame and the second version leaves the ten-frame blank for students to fill in on their own. This way kids that need some extra support have just what they need to succeed.
I love using HP Instant Ink because it allows me to print in full color without ever worrying about the cost. I pay a low fee each month and they deliver the ink directly to my door, so that I never run out and I’m not charged extra for printing in color. Register using this link and you can even get a free month!
To Use the Snowman Ten-Frame Number Mats:
Use the snowflake buttons to count the correct number of snowflakes in the ten-frame and in the “sky” above the snowman.
Then use a dry-erase crayon to trace the number and the number word. You can also use play dough to shape the number for a fun alternative.
No matter how you use them, the kids are sure to enjoy their counting time!
