This is an 8-part project for first graders. Each child takes on the persona of a knight who needs to save three fairies from a dragon. Along the way each child must solve number stories and earn jewels.
There are 19 number stories in the project, one page of addition/subtraction facts, and lots of pages requiring basic reading (any tricky words have picture support).
I've used this project with great success in my own first grade classroom!
