This Valentine’s Dot bundle includes 5 dot the number pages. These pages are perfect for children who are learning to identify numbers.
When your child spots the correct number they then dot it with their marker. To create a reusable page, just laminate it and then use buttons, beans, pom poms, or cereal to lay on each corresponding number.
