TH H T and U mat

Recently I made an operations mat to be used with the golden beads and stamp game. This mat is great fun for the children and helps them to easily place the quantities in the right columns. What I like about using this mat, is that it helps prepare the children for doing the operations paper.

Today as one of the children was working with this with the golden beads, she kept referring to the headings on the columns to make sure she has the beads in the correct place. This really helped her to continue through the activity with very little help from anyone.

I made one for my classroom..I have 2 children that love it. It is a lot of fun & i've included some different addition strips..they aren'y quite their with the operations but we are building numerals into the thousands.

it is very nice..but i thought if we want to do this we have to use one with the diffrent colours (green for unit and thousand, red for hundred and the blue for the tens)?i hope the colours are right

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Ines, dont worry abt the spelling we all do that when we're tired.

Nun, the mat is colour coded. The headings are embroidered in green for U and TH, blue for T and red for H.
