Your primary students will enjoy practicing their counting skills with fun connect the dots puzzles.

#### Connect the dots puzzles are just number lines that make a picture. Your primary grade students will have fun counting along as they complete the scenes on these pages. The goal of all connect the dots activities is to encourage students to develop a solid sense of natural numbers while helping them look at the bigger picture literally. These activities also help develop concepts of color as shading. This is a fine motor activity, so you can bet your hand-eye coordination will improve as well. This can translate well to improving handwriting skills as we improve our visual motor control. When students are struggling with number sense activities this can be a huge confidence builder because the sequence is somewhat prompted by the order of the numbers in the picture. As you progress from simple ten digit dot to dot activities to pictures with fifty natural numbers students will have fun throughout the entire process and learn something along the way.

These fun activity sheets help students practice their counting skills up to 20. Students will connect the dots to create each shape shown, counting the numbers as they draw. Subjects include holidays, seasons, toys, animals, everyday activities, and more. Puzzles range in the number of dots the students must connect, so these pages can help the students expand their number sets, too. These pages make great art, math, or quiet time activities.
