Pumpkin Ten Frames and Number Cards (0-100) Hands-On Math

Thanks for your interest in my Pumpkin Ten Frames (1-10) and Number Cards (1-100)! These cards and mats are very versatile. Here’s how I use them in my classroom...


Click to preview and purchase this printable download.

Number Cards: On card stock, print the number cards pages, cut along the lines, laminate, and place in your math center to practice number recognition and sequence. (I use plastic pencil boxes for number card storage in my math center area. They stack nicely and keep number cards in one spot, with a lid.) 

Ten Frame Mats: On card stock, print each ten frame mat and laminate. Students practice counting by placing playdough balls or small manipulatives within the ten frames as they go. (Puff-pom balls work great for this, but any small item will do!)

{Tip 1} I prefer to use my number cards on a magnet board...so I add adhesive magnetic business cards to the backs of each card.

{Tip 2} Try having students place number cards within the ten frames. Once the frames are laminated, they could also use dry erase markers to number each turkey within the frames.

{Tip 3} If you have a magnet board, try taping off a ten frame with painters tape for student use. (So much fun!)

{Tip 4} Print extra number cards to use with your classroom calendar & number of the day chart.

My students love to count! I see their confidence growing as we use the number cards daily for practice during our morning meeting’s calendar time. I hope your students love this hands-on method of counting as much as mine do.

Color By Letter Decoding Activity {HALLOWEEN}

Thanks for your interest in my Halloween Color By Letter packet. Students will decode and match color names to a combination of upper and lowercase alphabet letters. Packet pages range from 3 – 5 letter/color combinations. 

This download includes:
- Two versions of color by letter pages (see preview for details) 
- Color letters
- Black and white letters
- 12 designs in all
- 24 printable pages (12 color, 12 b/w)

Simply print pages the pages you need and add them into your literacy center. 

Click to preview and purchase


{Tip 1} I use these pages in a variety of ways, but one of my favorites is to use them during small group sessions. We incorporate letter recognition and listening skills as we color together.

{Tip 2} These pages also make wonderful additions to home learning packets around Halloween. 

{Tip 3} If your students are pre-readers and you want to use the black and white pages, it is helpful to either A) go through the pages and color OVER the letter/color name for children OR B) have children mark the letter/color during whole group instruction. You could also use an anchor chart to help students identify each color needed per letter.

I Am a Bat Life Cycle Full Size Classroom Book (Science & Literacy)

Thanks for your interest in my I Am a Bat Classroom Book. I wanted a bat-related life cycle book for my Pre-K students that 1) we could sing as we go, 2) would not frighten them, and 3) contained basic information about bat life. I created this fun, engaging book, and even my youngest, most sensitive students love it! 

Click to preview and purchase this book!  
This download includes:
- One (10 page) printable book
- Large text in a plain handwriting font 
- 7 bat-related vocabulary words cards taken from words featured in the book (clinging, fly, hibernation, nursery, pup, roost, wings)

Simply print pages 5-13 on 8.5” x 11” paper or card stock, laminate, and bind or staple the pages together to create a book for your classroom. 

{Tip 1} Sing text to the tune of Over in the Meadow for a fun twist!

{Tip 2} I like to bind my printable books with a comb binder. My youngest students tend to pull the pages out of the comb. To eliminate that from happening, I dab a tiny, tiny bit of E6000 glue on each little comb tooth. Now my books last several years before needing to be replaced! The glue can be found in craft stores or HERE.

{Tip 3} There is also an I Am a Bat printable (black and white) emergent reader 
available. I send the emergent reader books home so families can read together. I have found doing so helps build much stronger literacy connections between home and school!Find it HERE!

Printable American Sign Language {ASL} Preprimer Sight Word Cards

Thanks for your interest in my ASL Preprimer Sight Word Cards. I use sign language in my classroom to keep students active as we work and learn, and it is effective in many ways! As children spell words with their fingers, their brains are more actively engaged in the activity at hand, creating a higher chance of retention. For children who tend to be a little more wiggly than their peers, finger spelling as we work is often a good outlet for that extra energy. ASL is a great fine motor activity (especially first thing in the morning). I have found it to be a wonderful way to get those little fingers moving!

Each card measures approximately 2.5” x 5”. They fit well in pocket charts, on word walls, or in small baskets/containers for group sessions. In my classroom, I print and laminate two sets of cards. The first is for the word wall. The second set is mobile. I attach magnetic business cards on the back of each card for use with my magnet board. ( I am a magnet board junkie!) The black and white version (included in this download) is a fabulous way to promote learning at home. I make a copy for each student, trim, staple into a small booklet, and send home so children can practice with family members.

Words of Focus:
a, and, away, big, blue, can, come, down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run, said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow, you

Simple to Prep:
- Print pages 4-10
- Laminate each page
- Trim along the border of each card

{Tip} Print pages 11-17 to send home with students!

Each download includes the bonus black and white version, perfect for home learning!  These cards are available in the following patterns...

Ghost Counting Hands-On Math Mats 1-25 Low Prep PS-K {FREE}

Thanks for your interest in my FREE Ghost Counting Mat (1-25). This download contains two versions of my ghost themed counting mats: color or b/w, with or without numerals . Choose which version meets the needs of your students. This free download contains 4 printable pages in all.

Click here to preview and download this free math activity.

Students use candy corn, Halloween mini erasers from the dollar store, spider rings, colorful puff-pom balls, or other small manipulatives to count and match one manipulative per circle or number on the mat. 

Assembly is super simple – no to low prep, depending on how you wish to use them. 

No Prep:
Black & white pages can be printed & used as counting mats, recording sheets, and coloring sheets for fast finishers.

Low Prep:
Print the counting mat pages (choose color or black and white) and laminate (or slide into page protector).

{Tip 1} If manipulatives are ending up everywhere but the mat, try placing the mat(s) on a large fast food/restaurant tray or cookie sheet for each student. That usually does the trick for students unable to figure out space boundaries on their own.

{Tip 2} I also use black & white copies as counting/number assessments.
