Need a fun way to practice beginning number concepts? With Monster Numbers, you're off to a great start. Students will learn how to count, number order, handwriting numerals and find ways to make numbers! Using a creative, themed ten frame (a Monster Keeper) students will enjoy mastering numbers 1-10.

Starting off, students learn that counting is touching items 1:1 and saying the next number that comes in order. The second half is taking that knowledge and practicing 1:1 using the pictures and learning to handwrite the numbers 1-10 using simple, catchy chants.)

I absolutely love this product! I work with ELL students and they have really benefited from having the catchy sayings for number writing. They beg to do these activities even though they know how to write their numbers now. Thanks for the hard work!

Our curriculum has us flying through number sense so fast that some of the kiddos are getting left behind...I love that this is a quick activity that I can use to reinforce number sense throughout the day. It provides support for those who are struggling and stretches those that 'get it.'

Wow - you're ahead of our class. We haven't quite finished yet. ;) So glad they found catching the monsters fun. Hope that it helps develop a strong sense of ten frames with them! Thanks for commenting!
