Number sense is an important skill for children to learn. Number sense helps children learn all parts of a number. It includes the numeral symbol for the number but extends beyond that with tally marks, dice, equations, a number line, ten frame, number word, etc.

This Zoo Animal Number Sense Mat covers almost all of those aspects. We’ve included a space to explore not only the numeral symbol, but number line, number word and two blank spaces to fill in with what your child needs the most practice on. You can use any example from above. The animals that we included on this mat are: Lion, Elephant, Monkey, Zebra and Tiger.

This activity is best used by laminating the mat. If you don’t have access to a laminator, you can get dry erase pockets. These work just as well as laminating. You can also use a sheet protector. These can be written on using dry erase markers and then it can be used over and over again. This is the most cost effective way.

Grab your dry erase markers and let’s get started.
