Number Poems




Teach proper number formation with these number poems and practice pages.

The large numbers allow your students to practice number formation with big strokes.

You can use each page for rainbow writing, display, or even use the pages for tactile experiences by having students use the pages for number collages or by gluing sand or seeds inside each number.

We are currently working on numbers 1 to 5 in kindergarten!  It has been especially hard to make the numbers 2 and 5.  We have many, many reversals and difficulty with the curve of the these numbers in particular.  We are using these math practice pages in conjunction with the above poems to practice, practice, practice!

100 Days

  Saw this adorable idea on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.

We used butcher paper for the capes (instead of the plastic table clothes),  cut construction paper for the zeros, used bingo markers to make the dots, and a co-teacher had the glasses template. We are going to be Super Heros in honor of Zero the Hero!  I’m going to try pinning the capes on instead of using string to tie them on. 

The kids are so excited! After working on these today, they can’t wait for the 100th day!

Celebrate 100 Days of School!

100 days is so important to our little ones.  We count and count each day, adding ones and grouping tens, anticipating important events as the days pass, one by one.  They are developing their understanding of numbers and what they mean along the way.  100 is an exciting milestone for our students.

Over the years, I’ve collected ideas and activities to help me make this day special, but also focused on learning.  In this packet, I’ve collected a number of ideas, learning stations, math activities, and literacy activities to help me (and you) celebrate the 100th day with our class.

They are easy to use, cute and packed with learning.  Just what the teacher ordered!
