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!

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!

These pages include ways of making ten with ten frames, our fingers, chips, drawings, and more.  It will hopefully give my kids the extra  and repeated practice they need to master the concept!

New and Improved!

Aligned with Common Core

Numbers, counting, place value, adding, subtracting, more and less,  letters, sounds, rhyme, segmenting, blending, syllables, sight words, handwriting, writing, calendar, reading, comprehension, and more!

Students and parents love the process of student led conferences.  Parents see the skills their children have mastered and those skills to continue working on as their child takes them through each station.

It is a great way to show parents the skills we work on in kindergarten and ways to practice with their child at home.

Parents and children enjoy being part of the process!



We are working through the numbers 1 to 10.   Two fingers and cubes!  We’ve been singing “One little, Two Little, Three Little Fingers” to practice showing the value of each number.  It’s tricky for kindergarten!  They are trying so … Continue reading



Tables are ready for math time!

Today was number 1


First the kids did their work in pencil.


One Sun.


Then we traced with markers and colored with crayons.


Tracing with markers keeps our markers from drying out too fast and it gives the kids extra fine motor practice.


This was my first time trying out the new pack and it worked great!

It was just right for beginning kinder.
