Differentiated Math Activities

There are three kinds of mats. One has numbers 1-10, one has numbers 1-5 repeated twice, and the final mat has numbers 11-20.

This gives you a chance to differentiate a bit and meet your students where they are.

You can also change up the manipulatives used on the mat or the way the mats are used, depending on the needs of your students.

Students can count the teeth and then put a matching number tile or number magnet on that space.

Or they can count out small objects (like mini erasers) onto the mat while practicing one to one correspondence.

Using this Dental Health Counting Printable

Students will look at a space on the mat and count how many teeth are shown in the smiling mouth.

After they are done counting they will find a corresponding number tile and cover that space with it.

This will continue until all of the spaces on the mat have been covered.

I hope this simple dental health themed math activity will be a great addition to your math centers or morning tubs this February!
