Dot Marker Coloring Pages
Included in the collection are 6 full-color winter do a dot art pages and 6 black and white ones.
The black and white version is perfect for printing multiple times or for use in the classroom. After they have used the dot to dot markers, your child can color in the winter pictures for even more fun.
Dot The Number Page
This dot the number page that is included is a fun page to help with counting and graphing.
Here your child will look at the number under each object and then dot that number of circles with the marker.
This activity helps reinforce graphing as well as counting!
If you want to use these pages over and over again, we recommend printing them in color and then using a laminator to protect them.
You can use other manipulatives to cover the circles rather than dot markers. This helps develop fine motor skills as kids pick up the objects with their pincer grasp.
For this activity you can use:
- Pom poms
- Bingo markers
Just be sure your child does not try to eat any of the manipulatives.
Find The Letter Pages
Included in this pack are 4 dot the letter pages. The letters included in this printable is I, M, P, S.
With these pages, your child will look for the coordinating letter and dot each one. This printable helps with letter recognition to identify both upper and lower case letters.
To use these sheets over and over again, just laminate each sheet and then use a dry erase pen to mark the correct circle. You will want to wipe them clean after each use so the marker doesn’t get stuck on the laminated pages.
We have also included a dot counting page in this winter pack. This is a simple worksheet where kids will count the number of objects in each square and then dot the coordinating number below it.
We love this dot pattern printable! It reinforces pattern recognition in a fun way.
This is another printable that you can laminate to use over and over again and just use a manipulative object to mark the pattern.
Dot The Object
Dot the object is a simplified version of an I Spy game.
Here your child will dot the circle underneath each coordinating object. With 4 different sheets, your child will get lots of practice looking for different objects!
Lastly, we have included 5 fun counting mazes. With these printables, your child will begin at the start and follow the correct number down throughout the maze to reach the end.
We love these ones because the mazes reinforce number recognition as they try to get through the maze on the number trail.
You can easily make these reusable as well. To do this you, laminate them and then use manipulatives to cover the correct number circle on the path through the maze. You can also use dry erase pens to mark each spot as well.
Dot Marker Printable Benefits
This winter do a dot printable pack is a simple way to entertain children for hours.
We usually laminate a set for multiple uses and then print several sheets in black and white to allow children to use the dabbers over and over.
As your child has fun playing, it will not only entertain but reinforce fine motor skills, number and letter recognition, and other math and beginning reading skills.
