These desk tags are also a MUST. I absolutely LOVE them.
And all of my kids keep a laminated number line in their desks as well. I’ll typically have them pull it out during transitional times and we’ll “walk the line” using number line riddles.
These puzzles were clutch...especially at the beginning of the year. It’s so interesting to see how much the kids know and understand when they enter Kindergarten. These stayed in the dessert tubs for the first few months of school.
One of the biggest obstacles…especially at the beginning of the year…is getting kids to properly form their numbers. Speaking of which, don’t forget about this little trick I shared back in April!
This year I wanted to give the kids an opportunity to not only practice writing their numbers, but to recognize the various forms as well. I created this little number book as an “extra” practice activity and wanted to share it with y’all…for free, of course!
Just click on the pic to download your copy.
Hope you can use this in your classroom this year, too!
I’d love to know what some of your most favorite back to school number sense activities include! I’m always looking for exciting ways to engage my kids in math!
