If you’ve been following along, you know that my kids and I recently completed an ant unit where we did all sorts of activities to learn about ants. As part of that unit, I created several different ant-themed printables that I have shared at Gift of Curiosity. Today I’m pleased to release my ant do-a-dot printables as the next printable I’m sharing from our ant unit.
Note: For more resources, printables and activities related to ants and other insects, please see my insects unit study page. And for more do-a-dot printables, see my do-a-dot printables page. Plus, see my post sharing 15+ ideas for using do-a-dot printables for learning.
My Ant Do-a-Dot Printables Pack contains 17 pages of Ant do-a-dot worksheets. While completing these worksheets, kids will practice one-to-one correspondence, patterning, shapes, colors, counting, numbers, and letters. Plus, kids will learn a bit about ants, which are some truly amazing insects!
The activities in my Ant Do-a-Dot Printables pack are designed to be completed using do-a-dot markers.
Our family owns and uses do-a-dot markers for a variety of activities. Do-a-dot markers are a great option for young children who don’t yet have the fine motor control to use a pencil. Using do-a-dot markers, kids can color in pictures, hunt for items in a worksheet, and express themselves creatively at a young age.
But don’t think that do-a-dot markers are just for little kids. Indeed, kids of any age are likely to enjoy using do-a-dot markers. My kids are perfectly able to use a pencil, but they still get a kick out of using our do-a-dot markers on a regular basis. Using do-a-dot markers can also transform what would otherwise be a boring worksheet into a fun activity involving mess-free paint!
Although we are a fan of do-a-dot markers, there are still plenty of ways your kids can enjoy do-a-dot printables without them. For example, children can use dot stickers, pom poms, buttons, or even just crayons to fill in the circles. Plus, in this post I shared more than 15 ideas for using do-a-dot printables to help kids learn, and I show ways to use a variety of materials with do-a-dot printables.
Below is a sneak peak at the 17 activities included in my Ant Do-a-Dot Printables Pack:
My expectation is that the activities in this pack will most appeal to kids ages 2-5. However, it is possible that some older kids will enjoy these activities as well. I hope you can find something in this pack that your children will enjoy!
