Fine motor maths activity - counting using pipe cleaners and beads - my kids loved this today! This is just an image with no link to a website, but I think it would make an awesome math and fine motor center in any special education or kindergarten classroom setting. Matching quantity to numerals is a great way to build early and strong number sense.

My older students love to experiment with bigger numbers. When 3 students play, one likes to use a white board to write down whatever math problem they are working on while the other two count out the beads. The children put the first set of counting items in the first cup, and the other child puts the second set in the second cup. They all fall through to the basket, and then they count them all up.
