# Pumpkin Count and Match Mats Counting Activity for Preschool

These new pumpkin count and match mats will make learning to count an engaging, hands-on experience. Add them to your math centers this fall.

## Pumpkin Count and Match

Our count and cover mats are such a hit that I thought it would be fun to make another type of count and cover mat.

On this new type of counting mat, students count objects on the mat and then cover the space with a matching number tile or number magnet.

In this case, students will count the number of seeds inside of a pumpkin.

If you looking for a hands-on, differentiated way for your students to learn counting, number recognition and number sense, then these pumpkin count and match mats are perfect for you!

They require no-prep other than printing and slipping into write and wipe pockets or laminating. There is no cutting involved. Plus, they come in color AND black and white options.

This makes it perfect for your fall or pumpkin theme math centers.

### Setting Up the Pumpkin Counting Mats

Adult supervision is required for all activities I share. Please use discretion when doing the activities with children and only do activities that you feel are safe for your kids. Children under 3 should not participate in any activities that involve small pieces.

• The count and match mats (button to download is at the bottom of this post)

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

There are two kinds of mats. One has numbers 1-10 and the other has numbers 1-5 repeated twice. This gives you a chance to differentiate a bit and meet students where they are.

### Using this Pumpkin Counting Activity

Students will look at a space on the mat and count how many seeds are inside of the pumpkin.

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 pumpkin activity will be a great addition to your math centers or morning tubs this fall!
