Differentiated 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.
