A package of pompoms, bows, erasers and other small items and you are set for MERRY MATH and hands-on learning.

Check out this Facebook Live video where I demonstrate these projects:

Ask children to sort the pompoms. What was their sorting rule? Can they sort them another way?

Use the pompoms for making patterns.

Have children estimate the number of each type and then verify by counting.

Math Mat
Children place the correct amount on the trees.

Match Dot Cards
Pompoms are a perfect one-to-one activity for younger children.

Stamp a pattern, stamp out math facts, or stamp a set.

Roll of the Dice
