Product Description
My students absolutely LOVE making and collecting “sliders”.

I gave them that name because children “slide” a strip of paper through a “window” in a crafty little graphic, that displays numbers, letters, or shapes.

The cutting & sliding are great for strengthening finger muscles too.

We do one each month to match our theme and whatever lesson I want them to practice.

Even though I designed this packet with an assortment of animals that leap and hop, to use for my leap day lessons, these animals also work for a variety of your other year ‘round themes and seasons as well.

There are two animals to a page for quick printing, plus I’ve included 11 different strips, so that you can practice all sorts of standards, simply choose which one you want your students to practice.

There are number strips for sequencing numbers from 0 -10 as well as 1-30; plus a strip for counting backwards from 10-0 or 20-0, as well as strips for skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, & 10s.

There’s also a strip for uppercase letters, as well as lowercase letter strips, plus a strip of 2D shapes, with various size options for you to choose from.

Sliders are very helpful for reinforcing those toughie teen numbers, and are especially great for visual learners.

They are also a super-fun homework assignment, and especially helpful for your ESL or struggling students.

My favorite thing about them is that they are a quick, easy and interesting way for me to whole-group assess because you can see at a glance who is having difficulty.

Just for fun, I've also included my "Animal Pokey" song, as something else you can do with the animal slider, which will help get the "wiggles" out.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a very happy leap day!
