These Saint Patrick’s day math activities help kids learn counting and numbers to ten. Suitable for Pre-K, Preschool & Kindergarten.
Saint Patrick’s Day – Counting to 10
This counting mat is also a fun way for kids to learn how to write numbers.
Preparation – Begin by printing and laminating the mat for added durability. Personally, I also like to put mine in a dry erase pocket sleeve too because it is SO much easier to wipe clean. I bought mine online from eBay. Once your mat is all prepped, you’ll also need to grab some counters, a dry erase marker and a cloth to wipe the mat clean.
How to Play – Start by counting ten counters onto the ten frame. Next, re-count the counters starting with the first counter. I remind the kids to touch each counter once as they say the number. After the kids have counted to ten, get them to read the numbers on the right from 0 to 10. Finally, grab the erasable marker and trace the numbers. Encourage the kids to start where the dot is, to help them with the correct number formation.
These cute leprechaun clip cards feature ten frames with gold coins. They’re a fun way to develop counting, number and fine motor skills!
Preparation – Start by printing and laminating the number clip cards for added durability. Then grab a basket and fill it with clothes pins. I love using some mini clothes pins that I found in the craft section.
How to Play – Choose a card and count the number of coins on the ten frame. Then grab a clothes pin and clip it to the correct number. Continue playing until all of the cards are finished.
Tip – If you’d like the kids to be able to self- correct, you can flip the cards over and put a sticker or dot behind the correct answer.
