*The thematic number line includes several monthly pages for you use with your students. It is a build as go grow activity. The number line will grow with each passing day since, you can add a new object to the number line for each day you are in school. There are thematic objects printed out for each month, so students can see the change and growth between numbers and months. To prep, simply print out how ever many pages you might need of a certain object for that month. Then cut the squares and have them ready for your daily math/number talk.
I post the kit right along side my calendar, so I can easily flow into our math/number talks during our calendar time.
