Mitten Match Maths Activity

For this mitten match maths activity I tried to keep it in a winter theme to make it easier to get back into our daily maths and phonics session. When my youngest charge saw what I had put out for her to do she was really eager to have a go, even her elder brother wanted to do it rather than maths jigsaw I gave him.

The aim of this mitten match maths activity is to pair the mitten with the number on to the mitten that has the right number of dots on it. It  can also be easily adapted to different abilities so that if I did it for my eldest charge I would match numbers to words rather than numbers to dots. If you wanted to make this even more challenging then you could get your little ones to cut out the mittens and then match them.

Make sure you follow my maths board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own mitten match maths activity you will need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Draw and cut out your mittens – I did 5 pairs of them so that we could concentrate on numbers 1 to 5.

On half of them write the numbers and then on the other half draw your dots.

Get your little one to pair them up, and then stick them on to a piece of paper.
