## Number line to 10

This number line to 10 is such a fun flower math perfect for early learners to work on putting numbers in order on a number lines. Children learn to count through playing and this Plant Number Line is such an engaging math game to work on counting to 10, skip counting, and counting 11-20 too. From a young age you will hear them count, but does not mean they understand their counting. Practicing counting with an interactive number line activity like this one, helps to make counting concrete and thus more understandable. This is both a nubme rline craft and a math activity for preschoolers.

For this number line activity you need:

• A long cardboard roll
• Popsicle(craft) sticks, green
• Cupcake liners or circle cardboard or craft foam flowers
• Marker
• Craft knife or sharp scissors

## Number Line Craft

How to make

• Write the numbers onto the “flowers”
• Glue the “flowers” onto the sticks
• Make holes in the cardboard roll for the sticks to fit(I made the holes 5cm apart)
• Write the numbers under the holes

## Plant Math Activities for Preschoolers

Add (“plant”) the flowers to the correct holes  in this number line to 10. This  works on number recognition and visual discrimination skills and fine motor too. Count the flowers, starting at number one, by pointing to each flower. Now your child’s brain will make the connection between the verbal and written letter names thus giving them the bigger picture than just rote counting.

Let your older kids practice to count backwards using the number line!

## Interactive Number Line

Older kids can do skip counting too, or only plant uneven numbers/even numbers etc.

Extension

Use a bee or butterfly picture/toy and fly onto a flower (say Nr.2). Now the bee flies to one more flower (2+1=?). Then ask your child to count how many flowers the bee must fly past to get to Nr. 5, for example. (2 + ? = 5) These are just simple, number line for kindergarten math exercises you can do with this number line setup. I bet your child will love it!
