On our latest library trip, we recently picked up the counting book, 10 Black Dots.  The cover alone inspired us to create a simple fine motor math activity for my kiddos to do after we read through the book!

Ya know, ever since our time with Five in A Row Literature Based Curriculum, I love extending a storybook through some type of craft and/or learning activity!  So if you browse through the blog, I am sure you will find lots of fun go along activities for all kind of storybooks from If you Give A Cat A Cupcake to Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to Put Me in the Zoo.

After reading 10 Black Dots with your child, present them with this free counting printable to practice counting numbers 1-10.

Using the tip of the q-tip, your child will make correct amount of dots in each number.

This is a great way to work on counting skills, 1:1 correspondence, and number recognition.
