A ladybug math mat to use when practicing composing and decomposing numbers. Place the target number of 2 color counters in a small cup and spill them out on the mat. Separate the colors on each side of the ladybug and record the combination. Students should repeat this until all combinations have been discovered or until the student begins to develop an understanding of number relationships and patterns. Includes mats for 4, 5, and 6.
