Numbers 1 - 20

We are using our Calendar Numbers, Snap Cubes and Math U See manipulatives to practice numbers 1-20 with Lil A. She made an interesting pattern of topping each tower off with a pink cube!

The snap cubes can provide the same sensory effect as the rods in the Montessori classroom, while the Math U See manipulatives share the same principle has the beads.

I do love the Montessori Method that has the child do the work with manipulatives before writing is introduced.

Lil A can do this work well, she is a master counter, however she still needs practice in writing. I created a sheet so she can practice her numbers up to 40 that you can download on the 3 R's page.  I also use sheets from other bloggers and teachers. I like to switch them up, usually laminating worksheets we do over and over again and then I attach them to a ring to keep like subjects together.

Free download from TPT, I love the Palm Trees! Using a regular marker is a great beginner tool.
A marker is bigger to hold, and no crutch to erase mistakes.

The same worksheet laminated to use over and over again, less paper!
