For a very young child, rockets hold a lot of fascination. Often this is the first way a child might learn to count backwards. However, a student with a disability may not be able to reverse the process. "Counting Up Rockets" gives a student a chance to learn to count to ten in order and work on numerical sight words and writing.
To make this activity successful, you will need:
1 hand out of 16 pages per student (or copy half sheet size)
crayons or color pencils
Students will have a story to keep reading over and over again to help reinforce counting skills.
An alternative use of this lesson is to not provide the last page for cut out and provide a list to have the student choose to write from.
