In the olden days, I made these mats with construction paper, white crayon, and lots of cutting. Now armed with my trusty clip art and fonts, I can whip out tracing mats with the push of a button! Oh, how I love technology.
Use Larger Mats In A Variety Of Ways
- Include toy cars to practice letter formation, letter identification, numeral formation and identification, build number sense with ten frames 0-10.
- Include dry erase markers to trace the letters.
- Include play dough.
Use Small Cards In A Variety Of Ways
- Take with you during transitions to practice letter identification, letter sounds, numeral identification, or kids can hold up fingers to demonstrate “how many”.
- Put them on a ring and students can trace with fingers, play dough, or dry erase markers.
- Include large and small mats in your block center to add literacy & math components!
