Primary TeamMats Class Set of 14
14 Number & Animal Mats
This class set is designed to help you manage your little ones as they work in teams. In this class set, you receive 14 double-sided mats: 10 mats for teams of four and 2 of each mat for teams of five and teams of three. Each team places a mat in the center of the team table or between them on the carpet. Pick which side you want to use with your students. One side is the Number Mat that has all the bells and whistles. With this side, each student has a unique number and a unique color so you can easily select one student on the team to start by number or color. Everyone is assigned an A or B so when they pair up, you can say, “Partner A, please share with Partner B.” Students have either a square or circle around their number so squares can pair up with circles. The mat also indicates Shoulder Partners and Face Partners, making it easy for students to know who to pair up with. The Animal Mat is on the other side. Use this simplified mat with your youngest children. There’s a cute dog or cat so you can have cats pair up with a dog next to them or across from them. Each student has a unique color so you can select students by color. The colors match the other side so students can keep their colors when they are ready to graduate to the Number Mat. One glance down at their mats and your little ones know exactly who needs to do what.
