Mollie Monsters help your little ones identify which number comes BEFORE and which number comes AFTER.
Print the Before/After manipulative on heavy card stock. Use a straight edge and cutting board to cut open the windows--see my photograph for how to do it.
In addition, print the number lines on heavy card stock. The handy gray lines help line up your numbers when putting the number line strips together.
Have your students roll a 20 sided die to determine the target number and have them place their Before/After window on it as shown in the photograph. Then have them use the spinner to see whether they will find the number BEFORE or the number AFTER the target number. Students will love opening the window to see what number appears!
