FREE MATH LESSON - “Fine Motor Box Freebie: Counting Puzzle”

by My Happy Place
Pre-Kindergarten - Kindergarten

Here's a fun fine motor freebie! This Counting Puzzle Fine Motor Skills Task Box Freebie is a perfect addition to my other Fine Motor Skills Task Boxes! It can also be used alone as an early finisher activity, a morning tub, or a simple math center.

This activity allows students to build fine motor skills while practicing counting, ordering numbers, and one-to-one correspondence. To complete this activity, students sort and order cards from one to ten to put together a boat puzzle. Each card has a numeral and a corresponding number of portholes in the illustration. After assembling the puzzle, students count the correct number of 3/4" transparent counters to cover each window. Placing the counters requires students to use their pincer grip and develops dexterity, stamina, and patience.

To prepare this activity, print the boat cards on card stock. Laminate them, cut them out, and place them in the task box with a variety of 3/4" circular counters.

Please note that this resource includes a digital download for you to print. It does not include the manipulatives or box you will need to assemble the activity.

This set includes:
