Numbers Placemat

Learning Goals: Numeracy, One-to-One Correspondence, Principles of Counting

    • Each student gets a placemat and some playdough.
    • The students make playdough “worms” or balls to match each number on their placemat. (i.e. makes two balls of playdough and places them on the number 2).
    • Put the placemats in a sheet protector so that they may be reused.

We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto.
