Hi, I'm Yara.
Want to know how you can incorporate fine motor skills in your classroom?
- A4 paper
- Laminator (optional)
- Bingo daubers / Dot Markers
- Scissors (optional)
- Black marker
Print as many copies of the activity sheet as you need per student. If the students aren’t familiar ‘dot marking’, it’s a good idea to show them how to do so (maybe on the board and show them how to draw little spider legs). They will get the hang of it fast! Laminate the sheets if you like to re-use the activity over and over!

Spider Counting Game Make 10
Students will be somewhat familiar with counting on, this game can be used in preschool or kindergarten. Students will develop their counting on skills as well as their addition skills. You can also cut up the strips instead of having them all on one sheet (numbers to ten are included in the ten frame).
If students are working in a group, get each student to start ‘dabbing a dot’ in each box to make a spider. They will then count on from the number of spiders they see in each ten frame (for example 1 spider and 9 spiders make 10). Continue this until the students have finished all their cards. Walk around to make sure that all students are doing this correctly, the idea is that they are able to recognize how many spiders are on the ten frame and how many more they need to make a total of 10. For added practice, you can use manipulatives to get the students to show how many spiders make ten with colored counters (2 red counters and 8 green counters make 10 and so on).
