This activity gets students up and out of their seats excited about number recognition. Students throw numbers into the correct buckets. Buy cheap little buckets at the dollar store and put the number on and have students crumple up different ways to make the number and throw the crumpled paper into the correct bucket. Your students will LOVE trying to make a basket (putting the correct number-tally marks, dots, etc.) to the number bucket. This activity comes with the number, number word, tally marks, ten frame of dots, and pencil shapes that students must count. Print on colored paper. The accompany data sheet can be used for students to keep track of the different ways to make that number.
ENJOY this fun math station! Great for a finished work activity too!
