Montessori-Inspired Ocean Math Activities - my post at PreK + K Sharing with links to free ocean printables and ideas for using the printables to create Montessori-inspired activities for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
How is this for a Math Workstation... I bought these cardboard letters at the teacher store. There were 3 of each number. On one set I put stickers to help those who are not identifying numbers yet. The other sets I left blank. The kids will match clothespins to the corresponding number. Again, I love this station because it builds in a fine motor component which is so important early in the year.
Learning to count...great idea
Cut out circles, write the ABC's on them, and play 5 different alphabet games for preschoolers.
Fish in the Sea Counting Game-Math Center idea. I would do numbers 10-21 and start with simple counting/recognition; eventually turn it to an adding and/or subtraction game with dice. Could also do single dice and grab bag element where kids draw sea animal cards that say things like "add one" or "double number", etc.
Texture Sequencing Sticks - color, texture and quantities matched to digits. Lots of simultaneous learning happening. When students make these for themselves you add fine motor. I would let them keep the sticks in a pencil box at their desk and help them learn to count objects and match the spoken number word to the symbolic digit - so difficult for some of my kiddos.
Love this way to count, I remember learning about those "dots" in school
