0 – 10 Number Headbands
Fhis is a set of 11 headbands. These headbands are a great way to teach the numbers 0 - 10. The children will color the pieces on the headband and draw a dot in the ten frame to show the number. Each number is shown with a domino, dice, fingers, money, tally marks, dots, and number word. Make the headbands as you teach each number. Children will see this number all day!
Activities Using 1 Number Headband:
Call children to get in line or go to different areas in the room by the color they colored their large number. “All yellow elevens go to the rug.”
Pair up children. Each child will name the number their buddy has on. They will look at their buddy’s headband and spell the number word. They will show that number with their fingers.They can then both count to the number together. They can also describe everything they see on their buddy’s headband.
Activities Using More Than One Number Headband:
Call children to get in line or go to different areas in the room by the number they have on. “All twos get in line.”
Spell a number. Children with that number will perform an action. (Get in line, clap, stand up, etc.) Use this as a brain break.
Using all headbands, the children can sequence themselves by the number on their headband.
Have the children sort themselves by number.
Two children can come to the front of the group with their headbands on. The class can determine which child has on the number that shows more, less, or if numbers are the same.
Copy the headbands on card stock. The children will fill in the ten frame, color the dots, the dice, the number word, the balloons & animals, the domino, the money, the fingers, the fish tank, and the number. Add bands to the headband and staple or tape it around the child’s head.
