These winter counting mats are a fun way to learn about numbers for preschoolers. You can have a great time clipping on clothespins to the number cards or placing counters on top of the pictures. These math worksheets are a great way to have some fun with winter-themed items while getting to know more about numbers.
Combining learning with seasons is something that we love to do in our home. There’s just something about the combination that makes it stick in the brain a little bit better for the kids.
Plus when you use fun items for counters it just makes it all that much better as well! The colored pom moms are always a fun hit that makes this learning activity a good time and one they’ll look forward to.
Winter Counting Mats
During winter, the kids seem to love learning with a variety of animals or “snow” activities as well. And this is fine with me because this means that I can really vary up all the different themes to do my best to keep the learning fresh and new.
One of the ways to keep learning fun and fresh all year long is to incorporate your surroundings as well. It seems to help everyone transition well into the next learning phase also.
Plus, having a variety with the learning is always a big need as well. Kids love knowing that they are going to have fun and learn at the same time!
I also like to talk to them about what we have upcoming so that they can also get geared up and ready to learn.
Winter Counting Mats
I created these super cute counting mats and puzzles with a penguin and snowman theme, who wouldn’t love that? They’re so cute. The first page consists of counting cards and you can use a clothes pin to clip the correct answer. You could also use a manipulative or counter like a block, pom pom ball, or color with a bingo dabber.
There are 10 counting mats where you can use the above materials as well on the numbers. I’ve also written out the number so that your child can trace them.
The end of the pack includes 4 different number puzzles to get your children skip counting.
The counting mats can be used for toddlers up to kindergarten students depending on your child. They get to practice number recognition, spelling and writing their numbers as well.
Recommended Winter Books for Kids
Reading is another great tool that will help continue to develop the mind and vocabulary of your children! Read your favorite winter books to go along with these winter counting activities.
Anytime you can combine the same winter-themed books with whatever you’re learning, you’re going to help them remember that much more. And when it comes down to it, I think we can all agree that reading is a HUGE building block for so many other types of learning as well.
