Differentiated Dinosaur Counting Activities

What’s even better is that they are differentiated for the different needs of your students. Some students can work on numbers 1-5, others can work on 1-10, and your more advanced group can use the 11-20 mats.

There are mats with numbers, ten frames, and twenty frames so you can differentiate even further by using the different types of mats.

Students can also work on their own or with a buddy.

Add in fine motor work by having students use kid-safe plastic tweezers to move the mini erasers to the spaces on the mats.

Simply print the mats and slip them into a write and wipe pockets. You can also laminate them instead.

Using the Dinosaur Count and Cover Mats with Your Students

Students will look at a space on the mat and then count out the same number of mini erasers to that space on the mat.

This will continue until they fill all of the spaces on the mat.

These dinosaur counting mats are perfect for math centers, math rotations, or morning tubs. They could even work well for small group instruction.

I hope your kids enjoy them during your dinosaur theme or dinovember!
