Let each child pick out which transportation mat they would like to use. Have the children roll a number dice. Have them identify the number on the dice. (say it) Once they have identified the number have them count out the passengers. (count it) After the children have counted out the right amount of passengers have them write the number on the math mat with a dry eraser marker. (write it)
I used Lakeshore counting kids for the passengers. I made the transportation mats with construction paper and laminated them for durability and also so that the children could use dry eraser markers.
