This Christmas themed resource is made up of 40 number cards per version. Simply print, cut and laminate these cards for year after year use in your classroom or at home. For each number 1 to 10, there are 4 cards. Each card has pictures on and three numbers. One of the numbers matches to the number of pictures on the card. Children need to count the pictures and select the correct number from the three numbers. They can do this by pegging a clothes peg on the correct number. If pegs aren’t available, counters, stones, buttons etc. can be used and placed on the correct number. I like using clothes pegs as it is a great fine-motor activity as well as hand-eye coordination activity.

I have created two versions of the cards. The one has the numbers to clip or cover on the right hand side of the card. The other has the numbers at the bottom of the card. My husband is left handed and he found it awkward to clip the clothes peg onto the right hand side of the card. He found it a lot more comfortable pegging to the numbers at the bottom.

The cards can also be used for matching, sorting and ordering. Children can match cards that have the same number of pictures on, sort them according to odd and even numbers, order a collection of cards from smallest to biggest or biggest to smallest.

These cards can also be used to bring in language and vocabulary, through discussions of the pictures and how they fit into the theme.

I have been involved in education for 14 years. My experience includes pre-school as well as junior and senior school. I am involved in a mentorship programme that provides extra guidance to people who are training to become teachers. I am now currently a stay at home Mom, enjoying the opportunity to spend time with my little boy. Since being at home, I have co-authored two English text books for the country of Rwanda. I enjoy new and creative ways of teaching content and skills to my students. Not everyone learns the same way and I enjoy finding methods that help benefit all those that I teach. I love working with themes and find this enhances cross-curricular teaching in my classroom. Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Development - Foundation Phase.)
