Now, more than ever, fine motor practice is essential to our youngest learners. These pompom mats not only allow students to practice those important skills, but they combine counting with fine motor to make this activity even more valuable.
All you need are some tongs, tweezers or chopsticks and a variety of 3/4 to 1 inch sized pompoms.
Included in this set:
•I can cards for two versions of pompom playing mats
•9 pompoms mats where students count the total number of pompoms used, trace the word and then write the word independently.
•9 pompom mats where students trace, sort and count by color and total the number of pompoms used
Teacher instructions: There are two levels of difficulty from which to choose. Select the option you would like to use and print these in color and laminate to extend the life of this activity. Students will use tongs, tweezers or chopsticks along with pompoms picture. They will then count how many pompoms they used, and write or trace the word.
