Counting grids are a fabulous tool for preschool math. Not only do they make it easy to differentiate for your kids, but cover a wide variety of skills. Immediately children will strengthen 1:1 correspondence, counting as well as number recognition. Fine motor skills are also strengthened when manipulatives are used.

How to Use a Number Grid

Using these number counting grids is super versatile and this easy to prep activity will provide hours of learning for your kids. Children will simply roll the dice, identify the number (or number of dots), count out that amount of manipulatives along the numbers of the grid.

You can use a regular die for the 1-10 counting grid, a larger multi-sided die (such as a 1-10 or two digit number dice like 1-20) with the 1-20 counting grids or use a double-die to work on multiplying, adding and subtracting with the counting grid to 100 printables.
