Help them develop their number sense and number order with these mats.

To prepare:

  • A4 paper
  • Printer
  • Scissors (to cut and separate the cards)
  • Laminator

Print as many sets as you need for the number of groups in your class. If you are using these in a center, it’s a great idea if you have an extra set just in case you want another group to get started on the activity. There are 10 puzzles in total (5 for 1-5 piece puzzles and 5 for 1-10 piece puzzles).
