Santa has 1, 2, 3, 4, 5……. (a counting Flip Book)

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.
