and draw a ten frame on the leaf. You’ll need a Hole Punch
for the math, and a die.
Using Ten Frames with Older Kids
to mark off the correct number of dots on the ten frame. Knowing the number of dots on the dice by just glancing is a skill of subtizing and will help kids as they get older with math. Subtizing helps a child advance to more advanced addition and subtraction.
Using a Hole Punch for Fine Motor and Proprioceptive Input
provides huge proprioceptive input to little hands, which is such a good way to “wake up” hands before a writing activity. Combine math, handwriting, and literacy by counting out numbers on the leaves, writing numbers on paper, and creating sentences based on the numbers. You can also tally number of the different colored leaves and write down the results on paper.
