How to make

Number Line to 10

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!
