Alphabet Dot Marker Pages
If your child is working on their ABCs, these pages are great review for them.
With each page, kids will reference the uppercase and lowercase letter at the top of the page, then go through each of the circles to find matching letters.
This is great for learning to recognize uppercase and lowercase letters.
If you want to be able to reuse these printables, you totally can! Just laminate them and use a small object to be your marker.
You can try bingo markers, buttons, cereal, or anything else you have lying around the house that will fit inside the circles.
Do A Dot Counting Printables
Have your child work on counting with these 2 dot marker printables.
On the first one, kids try their hand at graphing. On the bottom, there’s a Christmas picture followed by a number. Kids use the dot marker to dot one circle for each number. This page reviews numbers 1-8.
On the second page, kids count the objects in each rectangle then find the corresponding number in the circle to mark.
Again, you can laminate these pages as well so you can use them more than once!
More Dot Marker Pages
Another set of pages we’ve packed inside this bundle is the dot the object page. On these pages, kids will look at the picture in the top, right-hand corner, then dot the circle underneath each picture that is the same.
This activity is great for focus and visual discrimination!
Finally, we’ve included a pattern page and a coloring page.
On the pattern page, kids discover the pattern, then dot the circle with the correct picture on the right hand side.
The coloring page comes with a key so kids can dot each Christmas picture in the box below.
We’ve loved using dot markers in the past. They’re a fun and educational way to keep the kids entertained and off the screens!
