Are your kiddos learning how to count backwards?
Mine are; it's one of our report card standards.

With that in mind, I created this cute "Countdown Glitter Ball" craftivity.
It makes practicing especially fun.

I've included "slider strips" for counting down from 10-0, as well as counting backwards from 20.

Simply print the patterns off on white construction paper.

Children trim, trace the numbers, and insert into the slits of their countdown ball.

For that finishing touch, add a bit of silver glitter for extra pizzazz.

To practice, we start from a sitting position.
My kiddos are holding their slider and counting backwards with me, as we pull the numbers through the "window" of their glitter balls.

As we approach zero, they get in a crouching position.
As we say "zero!" they jump in the air and yell "Happy New Year!"

After this bit of craziness, I easily calm them down, by having everyone whisper, as they once again count backwards, this time, into a sitting "criss-cross applesauce" position.

We then turn to a friend and whisper "Happy New Year!" to them, ending with a quiet Shhhhhhh.

They love "tip-toeing on marshmallow feet" to their cubbies, to put this away for another time.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your sweeties, enjoy this creative way to practice counting backwards, as much as mine do.
