### Awesome for teaching children how to tell time. I would use this as a whole class activity, and each child would get their own. --Teaching Special Thinkers: Telling Time is EASY PEASY Love this idea for teaching time with manipulatives!

### Inexpensive way to create math manipulatives. From Growing in Pre K - Math Center: Preschool printable activity sheets.

A, Bee, C, Preschool: Building Shapes. Kindergarten readiness: Colored craft sticks are labeled with the number of sides each shape has, ie: 3 purple sticks - triangle. The children will choose a color and build the matching colored shape from the sticks.

### q-tip painting . count by day activity { fine motor work too!} I like this idea for teaching the concept of time. Do 60 instead and count by

### Skip Counting Lacing Plates ----- Clever, simple-to-make, SELF CHECKING skip counting game (math activity).

### Maybe make an anchor chart for numbers to keep up in the wall for a while?---make a page of this for a math journal.

### Busy Bag idea - A fun DIY way to make math fun for kids! Great for parents and teachers! Makes an excellent math busy bag!

### Kindergartners add the two sides of a domino and then put it on the matching plywood square. GREAT for seeing all of the combinations to twelve! (image/idea only)

### For this project, the children can use one to one correspondence to match the number of figures with the number noted on the paper. Having the dots color coded to match the figures in also very helpful and teaches colors. - use with teddy bear math!

Taking the time to build fine motor skills is just as important as teaching your Littles letter names and sounds, numbers, counting, etc.
