Easy to Use Hands-On Winter Counting Mats

Counting is one the basic skills the builds math skills later. It is one you build with counting in different ways. I love that these winter counting mats work on counting in two different ways.

You start with the ten frame and then build the picture on the side. These have been really popular on the site and I love having different activities for different seasons. These free winter counting mats are the newest mats on the site.

This is a part of the 7 Days of Winter Printables.

The mats are great for kids working on their numbers 1 to 10. They are simple and easy to set up and make a great math center for preschool and kindergarten. Plus each one has a ten frame which is a great way for kids to work on the start of math. They also work great for a learning 10 frames in kindergarten and review for First Grade.

Each of the mats has the number written out, a number for playdough, and ten frames. You can see how I set up each of the mats. I used playdough, the winter kids, and snowflakes (I got our at Michaels a few years ago). You can mix up the kids that they put on the mat. There are 10 different ones to pick from.

How we use these mats

I often laminate the pages if we are going to use them often. But if I’m out of laminating sheets I’ll use a sheet protector on the pages. Plus that makes it easy to store. I just put all the pages in the sheet protector.

You can see how we placed the snowflakes in the ten frames and use the kids on the mat. This is fun to see what kids they will pick each time.

    I love these! Would it be possible to add one without the numeral & word? I’d like to say make ” “, now change it to ” “. And also use for addition & subtraction problems. Thank you for considering this. 🙂

      I’m glad you like them. I’m sorry but all free printables come as is. There are some sets that have matching addition and subtraction mats. The winter mat is not one that has it. I hope that you continue to enjoy the mats.
