Space Number Dot Marker & Counting

Space has always been a favorite theme. And I have also always loved dot markers! And I know we had a blast with the Ladybug dot marker counting and I thought it would be fun to have more of them!

Numbers are something you work on all year round and it is fun to have different themes for that. I know that space is a theme that so many kids just love.

We love dot marker and I love how fun the mats are to use with dot marker or hands-on items. Each of the mats has a dot marker number and then a matching planet with dots for them to count and dot.

There is a black and white version that is great for a no-prep math center. These are great for a single-use or if you want to save money on printing.

I love using these mats over and over. They are great for fine motor practice. I love using the no-prep black and white for fine motor practice with dot marker. I know my girls have always loved them when they were younger.

I also love to pull out erasers we have found at the dollar section at Target. We did a fun mix of the aliens on the planet and the rocketships on the numbers.

You can also use glass gems on these. They work out great for covering the dots on the page and make for great centers. I have several colors and love using them.

Space Theme Skip Counting Strips

Space has always been a favorite theme for us. We love doing activities with it all the time!

I love that space is a theme you can sneak in all year long and kids have fun with it. I have a fun new skip counting strips for kids to learn with!

Free Space Theme Skip Counting Strips - 6 strips for each number from 1 to 12 with skip counting forward and backward - 3Dinosaurs.com #skipcounting #freeprintable

This printable is a part of my subscriber library. You can click here to subscribe to get access to the page.

These printables work on skip counting from 1 to 12. Each strip skip counting has forward or backward. This makes counting a lot more fun for the kids.

You can see examples of the rockets here counting forward. The numbers start at different points. I have laminated our cards so that we can use dry erase markers on them.

The planets count backward. This allows them to change up their counting. You have two starting numbers to help figure out the pattern and 3 more to fill in.

How we use the Space Skip Counting Strips

These are really simple to use. I like to keep all the numbers together. So I put them on rings so my girls can go through them easier. Plus they are so much easier to store on the ring. You can then pull out the ring they need to work on.

You can have them point to each number on the skip counting strip as before they get the writing part. If they need help you can always pull ou the skip counting bookmarks to help.

Then you have them write out the missing numbers. The rockets go forward and the planets go backward. We have had a blast doing these this summer. Plus they are great to use all year long.
