Next, we used poster paper to make counting mats. We cut little white circles and labled each one with the number ten.
We put out ten paper plates full of small goodies and let each child take a baggy to collect ten of each item. The children then placed each group of ten on their counting mats. When 10 groups were filled, they counted by ten to check to make sure they had 100 treats. Afterwards, each child filled their baggy with 10 different types of treats to take home and share with their families.
They loved this activity. I thought I would need a lot of treats for this acticity, but I ended up with a lot of leftovers.
