Magnetic Letter Number Word Mats (1 to 10)
These magnetic number mats are a fun way to help kids learn about numbers up to ten. They make an awesome addition to pre-k, preschool and kindergarten math centers.
Number Word Mats
First print and laminate the mats so they can be used with an erasable marker. Alternatively, place the mats inside a dry erase pocket sleeve.
Next grab a cookie tray and fill a bowl with these magnetic letters: E, F, G, H, I, N, O, R, S, T, U, V, W, X . At least two of every letter works well.
You will also need an erasable marker. I prefer regular kids washable markers because they wipe off easily with a damp cloth.
How To Play
Step 1 Read and make it
Begin by reading the number at the top of the mat. Then kids can make the number word using magnetic letters or they can trace it with an erasable marker.
Step 2 Count it
Count the number of teddies on the ten frame. Kids can also count out that amount with real counting bears or other counters. Remind children to touch each bear as they say the number and ask “How many?” after they’ve counted them all.
Step 2 Write it
Trace the numbers using an erasable marker. Model how to form the letters correctly.
