Make your own math lacing plates frugally with just a few simple materials you probably already have on hand:

Supplies:

  • paper plates (I used small, green ones)
  • a paper punch
  • sharpie marker (to write the numbers on the front and make it self correcting on the back
  • laces( I used the plastic kind, but one can use any, even yarn)

The number of holes will depend on where you want your child to stop counting. I punched with 10 holes here:

Simply write the numbers randomly next to the holes:

Lace the plate correctly and then turn the plate around to mark off the lines. (Note that you will have to show the child the correct way of lacing: in-out-in-out…This could be a bit tricky for him/her at first)

This will serve as a self correcting tool!
