Teach your students all about numbers 1-20 with these hands on and engaging activities.
These are perfect for your classroom centers or morning work tubs.
Please see the Product PREVIEW for photos and more descriptions of the printables and activities included.
Print and laminate. Use with clay/dough, dry erase markers and/or counter chips (for 10 ten frames.)
I have children circle the target on the number line as well.
Print and laminate. Children fill up the gumball machines with the correct number of gumballs. Use beans, color poms, beads, etc. as gumballs. Great center activity! Comes in two sizes (larger machines for the teen numbers.)
★Animal Counting, number recognition and 1:1 correspondence
Print, laminate (cut apart if you wish) and use in centers. For 1-10, I use color poms, counting cubes, etc. for children to color match and place on each animal. For 10-20 I use number rods/units to match the pictures.
★Roll & Cover/Color
I use the color version in a center and the BW version when the whole class plays the game. Two players take turn rolling the dice. When a player rolls two dice, they count the total and color/cover that number on their board. The first player to cover all the numbers on their board wins. If they roll a number that’s no longer available (already colored) they pass the dice to the other player.
Print and laminate both pages. Cut apart the number cards and the two monster mats. Two players need 1 monster mat and 2 sets of cards (mix together in one pile). Place the cards in a pile face down. (Two players) each draw 1 card, and figure out if their card goes on the more side or less side by looking at their opponents card. They place the card on the correct side of the monster. Game is over when all cards have been used.
★Number Lines – Counting on
Print, laminate and cut apart if you wish. You can put them
on a binder ring for children to use as an activity. If you do this, I have children look at the black frame (complete number line) for assistance while they fill in the missing numbers. This is a great tool for practice using number lines and counting on. There are two versions: numbers (1-10) and (1-20).
★Colorful Counter Cube Number Rods
Practice number recognition, patterns, counting and 1:1 correspondence with this activity. I print, laminate and cut the cards apart. Children use any kind of blocks or counter/color cubes to make their matching number rods.
★Counting Cube Tower Mats
Children make towers using cubes or blocks on their mats to match the numbers. They can then place their number towers on the correct place. Comes in color and BW versions. I laminate the color mats to use in centers.
