Bright and cheery underwater-themed number cards for the numbers 1 to 10. Great for classroom display or for small group work
Today’s post is about number cards – ‘under the sea’ themed number cards, no less!
Number cards are great for displaying in your preschool or kindergarten classroom. They’re also a great resource for using with a small group of children – there are so many things you can do with them.
These number cards are for numbers 1 to 10. They are bright, colourful and decorated with super cheery sea creatures (after all, who doesn’t love a smiley starfish?!)
In these number cards, each number from 1 to 10 is shown as a numeral, in word form and also by a number of sea creatures like, for example, these blue fish for the number 7:
These number cards come in two different sizes. Included in this resource is one set of full (letter) size number cards…
And a set of half-page cards…
How do I use these number cards?
There are lots of ways you can use these number cards:
- Number practice! Your child could trace the large numbers on each card with their finger or, if you laminate the cards, with a dry-erase marker.
- Count the sea creatures on each card. Help your child place a counter over each creature as you count them (so they don’t count the creatures more than once).
- Play guess my number. Ask your child to choose one of the number cards, but not to show you. Ask them questions about their number so that you can guess what number they have. E.g “is your number bigger than 5?” “Is it smaller than 3?” Do you have the number 6?” This is a great way to introduce your child to some great math vocab.
- Use them for a number hunt! More on our love for number scavenger hunts here!)
In addition to the ideas above, there is a ‘suggested activities’ sheet included with the number cards. This includes a handful more ideas of how to use these number cards.
