These developmentally appropriate activities are great for differentiation. Just pull the puzzles that best address any learner’s particular needs. There is no stigma for the students about “being behind”, because all the puzzles have the same format.
This versatile resource can be used in a variety of ways to address numerals to 20. The puzzles are great for morning tubs, math centers, fast finisher activities, informal assessment, and take home packets. They can be used as individual, group, or partner activities.
Print, laminate, and cut out the puzzle pieces. You may prefer to print the pieces on cardstock for durability. Store the pieces in your choice of zip top storage bags, envelopes, zippered supply pouches, or novelty seasonal containers. You can put adhesive magnet circles on the back of the pieces and use a dollar store cookie sheet to make a magnetic learning activity. The puzzle pieces may also be used in a sensory bin.
Thank you for looking at these activities. I hope you and your learners enjoy these puzzles.
Have a fun day counting at the Pumpkin Patch!
