1-2-3 Come Do Some Number Recognition Activities With Me

number booklet, number posters, coloring pages for numbers, number recognition activities, counting activities, sequencing numbers, math posters, dot numbers, math centers, number crafts, math bulletin boardsBecause my Young Fives absolutely love making and collecting “Itty Bitty” booklets, I designed a set for each individual number 0-10.

number booklet, number posters, coloring pages for numbers, number recognition activities, counting activities, sequencing numbers, math posters, dot numbers, math centers, number crafts, math bulletin boardsI call them Itty Bitty booklets because there are 4-pages on a one-page pattern, making this little book “just the right size” for small hands and pint-size attention spans.

The booklets are a real time saver for me, as once students have completed one, there’s no need to repeat directions. Children feel empowered and can get right down to business.

You can start with zero, or save that booklet as a little something to do on a “Zero the Hero” Day, as you count up to 100.

I’ve designed the pages in such a way, that you pick the pattern pages most appropriate for your students and “design your own” Itty Bitty booklets, this also makes it easy to diversify your lessons.

The booklets are great for morning math, an independent math center, or homework, and work well for a math journal, interactive notebook or portfolio.

number booklet, number posters, coloring pages for numbers, number recognition activities, counting activities, sequencing numbers, math posters, dot numbers, math centers, number crafts, math bulletin boardsI've included a pocket as well as labels if your students have a math journal.  During "Back To School" sales when supply stores are offering 15 cent notebooks as loss leaders,  I stock up so my kiddos have a notebook for a variety of things.

Easy-peasy for me, fun for them, and everything's organized in one place. Notebooks are an excellent way to show progress at conferences and at the end of the year students have a nice keepsake. 

Students color and tape the "pocket" to the inside of their math journal, then tuck their Itty Bitty booklets inside.  You can also opt to put them in a small, manila envelope. 

I've also used smaller envelopes that I buy at The Dollar Store. Students glue one to a section of their notebooks that feature work on that specific number, then tuck that Itty Bitty booklet at the bottom.

number booklet, number posters, coloring pages for numbers, number recognition activities, counting activities, sequencing numbers, math posters, dot numbers, math centers, number crafts, math bulletin boardsThere’s enough variety so that you can also make extra booklets. For example, there are 2 “color me” pages which feature all of the numbers.  One is a selection of cute "number people", the other depicts children holding a number.

Pick one for your initial Itty Bitty booklet, then make an extra “color me” booklet with the other pattern pages. Instead of featuring just one number, this Itty Bitty booklet would showcase all of them.

Since the pages are small, coloring is simplified and not overwhelming. My students often ask if they can do more than one page at a time.

As with the color booklet, I’ve included a cover for this extra option. 

The mazes would also make a fun math center.  Laminate a set and have students complete the mazes with a dry erase marker.

These extra options are wonderful tucked in your sub tub, something for struggling students or early finishers.

I have my kiddos count how many cubes they used.

Run the pattern off on 4 colors, laminate and trim.

Sort the puzzles so that each puzzle includes all four colors, then keep each one in a ZipLoc Baggie in your math center.

Today's featured FREEBIE is another way that my students enjoy practicing numbers and counting.  

These bubble dot numbers can be used for individual worksheets (there are  2-on-a-page for quick printing) or add the cover and make into a number booklet.

They can also choose two crayon or marker colors and fill in the dots showing an ABAB pattern.

Make an extra set to use in a math center where students can place objects on the dots counting as they fill up the pattern.

Students can also sequence the cards.  Make an extra set and cut them in half or quarters and use as puzzles.

Another idea is to color your own set with school or classroom colors then laminate and use as anchor charts or flashcards.

I've finally survived a terrible cold, so need to tackle a long (oh my gosh am I behind) to do list.  Wishing you a productive and stress-free day.
