Students will LOVE counting by tens, fives and twos while playing this game! Copy colored page on tag board/card stock and laminate. I put one puzzle on each table in my room as a cooperative learning activity/math game. When I yell, “Go”, students work as a team putting the pieces in order while standing around their table. First team to finish sits in chairs and everyone does a cheer for them. I like to put a different puzzle on each table so students rotate to a new table for each round.

The black and white page can be put at a corner or sent home for homework for students to color, cut and practice putting numbers in order independently. Class motto: The More You Practice, The Better You Get!
Common core standard: K.CC.1. Count to 100 by ones and by tens
