I'd been looking through one of my favorite teacher catalogs and circling things I wish I could afford for my classroom and here's one of the math activities I thought the kids would love.
But who can afford $39.95 plus shipping?
So then I saw that roll of shelf liner for only $1.00 and I thought I'd give it a go. Here's what I came up with. I cut the liner into squares. Then I painted numbers on each one. So now I have my own set of number mats for only a dollar!! (They go up to 20)
They can be used as a number line or scattered and kids can jump around to find given numbers.
And then...I starting making task cards to go with them so my kids can use them with partners in math stations.
And then...this little trip to the Dollar Tree turned into a 97 page "Jump Around" packet on my computer!!
And now...I want to give you some!!!
I made task cards for lots of math skills and I posted the ones for skip counting in my TpT store for free. You can also check out the whole pack while you're there.
Lastly, I decided I'd jump on the giveaway bandwagon too!
I'd love to mail you a set of homemade number mats 0-20 and email you my "Jump Around" packet!
So as with all other giveaways you can follow me, my TpT store, link to this post, and leave a comment for each to enter. I'll choose a winner on Wednesday, the 23rd.
I hope you think this idea is as cool as I do! I just love saving money!
