How to Use Connect the Dots Worksheets in the Classroom

Designed for teaching counting and/or the alphabet, connect the dot activities are relatively simple worksheets with ample benefits for students. Not only do they improve student concentration, but they reinforce basic math skills and literacy skills! Here are a few ways our teacher team suggests using dot-to-dot activities in your classroom:
  1. Pair off students to practice listening and speaking skills as one student guides the other in completing the connect the dots worksheet.
  2. Print out dot-to-dot worksheets to add to your emergency sub tub or substitute teacher folder for a backup activity that can be completed at any time.
  3.  Use these printables to fill in that extra time right before a holiday break with low-stakes content that keeps the curriculum coming.
