After reading Little Miss Kindergarten's "It's Getting Dicey Linky" party ideas, I was instantly "on the roll" to come up with a dice mat to use for my Kinder's. During the month of October, my lesson plan includes a trip to the Pumpkin patch/Farm and I do a Farm theme along with my Pumpkin theme so I came up with this "Farming For Numbers" mat. My kiddo's need constant number recognition reinforcement AND I TOO LOVE to use DICE. So do my students. I will be making several of these mats, laminating them and putting them at my Math Center. I will give the students 1 die first to roll up to 6 and will have a bucket of Farm animals in front of them that they will have to place on the number they roll. You could use any type of counters though. When we get to the 2nd mat with numbers 5-10, I will give them 2 dice to roll. So not only number recognition but counting as well. *(Graphics by ScrappinDoodle).
