# Dot the Numbers – Preschool Math

Dot the Numbers is a simple math activity for toddlers & preschoolers. It helps develop number recognition, color recognition and fine motor skills. You can customize this activity for any number series you are working with.

What you need

• Paper
• Color coding labels
• Marker

How to

• Jumble and write numbers on the paper. Choose 4 to 5 numbers.
• On the bottom of the paper write the numbers and stick one color label for each.
• Let your LOs identify each number, say it out loud and stick the appropriate label on it.
• You can also use “do a dot marker” to dot the numbers.

I presented this activity to Miss D(3) today morning and told her what to do with it. She did two sheets – one with numbers 6-9 and the other with 11-14. She did the 6-9 in a breeze. Named the number, color, pointed out the numbers among the jumble and put the appropriate stickers on them. She finished one number at a time(all 7’s) and then moved on to the next.When it came to 11-14, she needed some help naming the number, then did the rest by herself – pointing & naming the number, color and place the matching stickers on it. She made sure the labels covered the numbers entirely. I could say she was so proud of herself when she was done. π
