Using the Apple Roll and Cover Number Mats
To use this hands-on math activity, students will roll one die and count the dots. They will find the corresponding number on the apple mat and cover it with a manipulative. Then they roll again and continue until all the numbers are covered on the apple.
To play with two dice, students will roll both dice and count the dots. Then they will find the sum and cover the number with a small manipulative. Play continues until all the numbers are covered.
You could also turn the mats into roll and color mats by having the students color the circle with a dry-erase marker, if you don’t want to use manipulatives. Either option is great for fine motor skills!
