There are so many talented teachers that generously share teaching materials today, it definitely makes it easier to meet the needs of the children here. Today I had prepped a free seasonal flip booklet copyright ABC Learn I had previously downloaded that fell right in with the focus on numbers for Dec.
This booklet worked for: counting 1-1 relationship / number order / number symbol / following directions / beginning reading
Each booklet is about 1 number and has 4 smaller flip pages attached. I attached the 5 booklets together into one booklet as that was more appropriate to my children.
Now how did the children build their booklet?
We started with a pile of the “Santa has….” strips for 1 through 5. I had the children find their strips and place in order from 1 to 5. Once done and checked I stapled together.
Then the children found the 4 small number cards for #1. They ordered and I stapled in place. This continued for #2, #3, #4 and lastly #5. That one was easy as only the 5 cards were left.
Each time I had the children count each small card to double check and reinforce that 1-1 counting.
They could arrange the small cards in any order they wanted.
I stapled each section as they completed them to keep it more organized. The children picked up real quickly what to do and once we had completed the first 2 sections together they were off at their own pace.
We finished by writing our name or beginning letter as appropriate.
Can I just say these booklets have been read and reread all morning.
As this was originally free I have this booklet copied in my google drive for sharing. I wish I could link to the original site and would appreciate the link if any teacher following here knows it.
