- Fine-motor skills practice with cut puzzle pieces

Ways to Use
If you have very young kids, the pieces of the free printable Spanish numbers puzzles can be used as whole-groupings. If you have older or more advanced students, you can break the puzzles into two pieces in order to focus on matching Spanish numbers words (e.g., uno, dos, etc.) with their numerals and dice. For even more practice, try breaking the puzzles into threes and really mixing them up.
Note that we kept the double-dice pictures (for numbers 7-9) as the five dice plus the next dice in order to not deviate from five and ten-frame practice that most kids do in schools, homeschool curriculum, and so on.
