For Valentine's Day too! Students trace and sequence through teen numbers (up to 20)! This math center activity is wonderful for the spring months and helps students with the tricky teen numbers. A blackline for numbers 1-10 is also included, for those students who still need practice with writing or sequencing those numbers.
WHAT YOU GET:
You will get two blacklines of out-of-sequence, numbered pumpkins; one for numbers 1-10 and one for 11-20. For each student, you will need one copy of the chosen blackline, a 3.5" x 24" strip of construction paper, a highlighter, scissors, glue stick, and pink crayon (and other colors, if desired).
1. Make an example and show students that heart rectangles need to touch (or almost touch) or hearts won't all fit on paper strip!
2. Have students trace numbers first, then cut and sequence, and then glue in order. Glue stick is best. Liquid glue will not make it easy for students to color after gluing down the heart rectangles.
3. Have students color hearts LAST so slower workers get writing and sequencing of numbers finished. This is where most learning takes place!
4. Instead of stapling in a "ring" for the optional crown, try stapling with wrong sides together so all numbers can be seen.
5. Cut hearts apart to create numbered "cards" and simply have students sequence them as a warm-up activity. Teens are especially tricky!
NEW! Students practice number identification, proper formation, number sequence, quantity, coloring, cutting, gluing, and following directions... all in a fun, seasonal activity!
