Groundhog Day Dot Dauber Set | Sampler FREEBIE

(1)
These Groundhog Dabber Activity printable worksheets are a great way to help your students with their fine motor, counting, one-to-one recognition, vocabulary and letter recognition. Students use the BINGO Dauber, or dot markers, to press down on each circle just like BINGO players do. I use these as a Center in my Media Center for when the theme fits and it is always a hit! Alternatively, if you do not have BINGO daubers, you can use manipulatives to cover the dots like pom poms and stickers (garage sale circle stickers are fun). Or even let those little fingers dip into paint!! Pictures currently in this set include: groundhog and woodchuck - same picture on separate pages spring winter
