Do your kids love sharks? These fun Shark Number Matching Mats are a great way for young children to practice counting to ten, while working on their matching skills as well as their number recognition skills.
Shark Number Matching Mats
This printable pack comes with two shark fin mats – one in colour and one black and white version. I recommend laminating these mats for durability, though you could also place them in a plastic sleeve.
For each number from one through ten, there are four different cards. Each card will need to be cut out and laminated, if desired, as well.
After placing all the number cards in a pile, children can then go through the pile and match all the same number together on their Shark Number Matching Mat. The four variety of numbers are:
- The number as an open shark mouth
- Shark Tooth Tally Marks
- Shark Ten Frame
- Sharks swimming around in water
A velcro dot could also be placed in each of the four boxes on the mat as well as on the back of each of the number cards to help with easier placing.
