Giraffe Spots

Numbers and Counting Game and free printable
Free Printable: Giraffe Spots Activity
Objectives: Number recognition, Counting, Fine motor skills
Age Group: Preschool/Tot School
Supplies:
Scissors
Paper
Toy numbers 1-10 (Or cut up the counting mat)
Lamination supplies (Optional)
Preschool
Directions:
To prepare, cut the giraffe card and spots out. I glued ours to old file folders, then laminated them to help them stay nice while we use them.
Preschool
1.  Give child numbers 1-10 and have them select one, and place it on the matching number on their counting mat.
2.  Starting at the number 1, have child place a spot on each number until they reach the toy number.
3.  Finally place the spots on the giraffe.

We counted while we put the numbers on the counting mat, and as we put them on the giraffe. I loved how she was able to independently learn how to recognize numbers by counting up to each one while looking at it on the mat. I was able to work with Mr. Tickles, while she continued to play and learn next to us.

Tot School
1.  Give child numbers 1-10 and have them select one.
2.  Count the number of spots that matches the number.

3.  Have child place spots on the giraffe. I gave him the giraffe with the pre-printed spots on it so he could work on his fine motor skills while placing the spots on the right spot. He kept thinking the spots should stick like stickers. If I would have thought of it, I would have put a little bit of poster tack on each spot to satisfy his need for them to stick.
