Ladybug Counting Mats

These mats are easy to prepare, just download, print, laminate or place in a page protector and you are ready to play with these Ladybug Counting Mats. They  are so much fun for little ones to practice learning to count to ten as well as learning to write the numbers. They can use playdough to recreate the large number as well as to count using the ten frames. If they choose, they can also use counters, pom poms, small ladybug erasers or jellybeans to help them count using the ten frames. Children will have a great time learning to count to ten while working on their hand and finger muscles by rolling the dough.

Each of these Ladybug Counting Mats contain a picture of a ladybug with a large number on them. This number can be traced with a marker (dry erase if laminated) or a crayon. Children can create this number out of playdough as well.

The number of the mat is also written in dotted format for children to trace, working on their handwriting skills. The third and final activity on these mats is a ten frame. There are ladybugs in the ten frame to help children learn to count. As they place a marker or ball of playdough on each ladybug, children can learn and build their counting skills.
