Dot Marker Coloring Pages
Of course, you have to include dot marker coloring pages, right?!
We have 6 cute animals included in this animal do a dot set:
There are two options for these pages. You can print them in full color or you can print them in black and white.
The black and white version is great if you just want to print off and let the kids dot away. They can also color the animal with crayons or markers when they’re done.
The color version is great for reusing. We suggest laminating them and then using other manipulatives to cover all the circles.
Here are a few ideas of things you can use instead of dot markers:
Just be sure to supervise any kids who may try to eat the objects you give them to cover the circles.
Do A Dot Counting Pages
We’ve included ten dot marker counting pages for kids to work on counting! These are all in black and white.
On each sheet, there are three areas. The first, on the left, is the number. Kids will dab all of the circles in the number then say the number.
After that, they’ll use the marker to dab the correct number of animals on the right side of the sheet.
Finally, they’ll use the tens frame box on the bottom to dab the correct number of boxes.
If you want to make these reusable you can as well. Laminate them and then use a manipulative to cover the number circles and some colored dry erase markers for the animals and tens frame.
Find The Letter Printables
There are also six find the letter printables for kids to enjoy. On each page there is the letter along with an animal that begins with that letter.
Kids will use their dabbers to dot every uppercase or lowercase designated letter they can find on the page.
We have included the letters and animals below:
- C is for crocodile
- E is for elephant
- F is for fox
- H is for hippo
- M is for moose
- S is for seal

Animal Books For Kids
Reading aloud is a great way to spend time with kids and help them learn. When kids hear stories, they can imagine the characters and the world they live in. This helps kids understand ideas and events that may be new to them.
Books also provide kids with new vocabulary words. As kids hear these words used in context, they are more likely to remember them and use them themselves. Whether you’re reading a classic tale or a new favorite, reading aloud is a great way to share the power of books with kids.
