Teen Number Practice Activities-Fine Motor Number Mats

Laminate them or add them to dry erase pockets so that you can use them over and over again.

As kids roll out play dough snakes to create the numbers they are getting excellent fine motor practice.

Fine Motor Math Practice-Counting Teen Numbers

You can have children choose their favorite color of play dough, roll it out into long pieces and then shape the pieces to fit inside each number.

At the bottom of the sheet kids can roll out play dough balls to place in the counting frames and show the corresponding number on the play dough mat.

Then once they’re done adding all of their play dough balls they can MASH them with their finger to re-count and make sure they created the correct number.

We call this COUNT and MASH and you’d be surprised how much kids love to MASH those little play dough balls.

Additional activities to extend learning:

  • Have kids find items around the classroom that correspond with each number.
  • Have children attempt to create their own numbers and shapes from what they have learned on the table with the play dough.
