My Number Book

 
This kids craft is an effective tool for teaching and reinforcing numbers. Children are involved in hands-on learning while creating each page of the book, and they'll relish "reading" it by themselves over and over again, reviewing their counting skills each time!

Instructions

 
  1. Fold 5 5" Squares in half, with the colored sides inside. Line them all up in the same direction, and begin gluing the white sides together (the right side of one to the left side of the next one) to form a book. The first left side and the last right side should not be attached to anything yet.
  2. For the cover, take another 5" square, and fold it in half other way, with the colored side showing. Glue to the first and last white sides to form a  cover. Allow to dry.
  3. Now it's up to the students and their teacher to get creative and decorate the cover as well as each page of the book. Take ideas from the photos of our sample below, and try to encourage students to think of some of their own ideas too. Each page of the book should depict a different number, using that number stickers or pictures.
  4. Here are some general ideas for what to use for each page: Use Sparkle Spots to decorate the cover. A tiny person cut-out, which kids can decorate as themselves, is cute for number 1. Wiggle eyes work well for 2. You can draw and cut out fingers and/ or toes for 5 and 10. Have children color in a rainbow for #7. Simple pictures that children are familiar with can be used for the rest of the numbers. Browse our large variety of stickers, or create your own shapes by putting Geometric Shaped Stickers or Stick-A-Licks together, to form, for example, houses, umbrellas, candies etc.
Tips for Teachers:
  • Decide if you want to teach numbers 1 through 5 or 1 through 10. For 5 numbers, use 2 facing page for each number. For 10 numbers, each side should have one number.
  • Are your students learning to recognize number? To write numbers? To read and spell numbers in their written form? Or are they just learning to count? Depending on their level, you, the teacher, can     their number books to suit their needs. For example, for students learning to write, provide dotted lines for them to fill in the numbers. If your aiming for number recognition, print out the numbers, and have children cut out and paste the appropriate number on each page.
  • You can use Hook and Loop Fasteners to make the numbers removable. This turns the number book into a fun math activity for constant review.
  • This number craft is a great opportunity for children to work in partners or groups, as they share creativity and learn to work cooperatively together.
