Thanks for checking out my product!
• Puzzles for the numbers 0-9 that are in the actual SHAPE of the number! Pieces include number words, dice, tally marks, ten frames, pictures, fingers, shapes (where applicable), and a couple of addition sentences.
• Number posters in FULL COLOR! They cover the same concepts as the puzzles do.
For both the puzzles and the posters, I recommend printing on white cardstock/construction paper and laminating for durability. Puzzles should be cut apart. It is up to you if you want to store each number’s pieces separate or not! Numbers are color-coded for ease of use, just in case!
I keep the puzzles at centers for practice recognizing numerals, counting, and understanding and using the different representations numbers can have. There are quite a lot! The kids love trying to get the pieces to fit JUST RIGHT to make the numbers. Nothing like some ENGAGEMENT during centers when I’m super busy working with other students!
I use the posters as part of my whole-group instruction. I believe it’s important for children to get multiple opportunities to work with the concepts found on the posters! They hang in the room all year long. ☺
