A Dot to Dot of a Witch for Counting to Ten

A dot-to-dot of a witch that goes to ten. Websterlearning

Many young children with disabilities have difficulty learning and retaining counting the cardinal numbers to ten. At the same time, they are enthusiastic about Halloween, right up there with Christmas as a favorite holiday. We have some simple dot to dots to 10 and 20 for the Halloween season. I doubted the effectiveness of using a dot to dot, until I heard one of my challenged counters counting out loud as she made her way from 1 to 20 on a dot to dot. Good practice, I think.

Dot to dots alone will not teach cardinality, but they certainly provide one way to practice counting alongside giant number lines, Unifix cubes, and other concrete ways to practice counting.

This ugly witch dot to dot goes up to ten. Once her hat is outlined, encourage your students to color her hat black.
