Numbers

N week usually falls right around the New Year if you start preschool Labor Day week in September.

  • Get a new calendar for the New Year! Each day, starting January 1st, help your preschooler write the number in the calendar square. So January 1, write a big number 1 in the square. The next day, write a big number 2 for January 2nd. The nice thing is that the kids can look at the number already printed on the calendar and copy it if they need to.

  • Print out this Numbers Book from www.funlessonplans.com.
    1. Cut apart on the solid lines and staple together. I wanted our books to be blank, so I actually printed mine without the butterflies by covering that area with a small paper when they printed.
    2. Let the kids trace the numbers.
    3. Use stickers or glue small items you have around the house to each number page. Let dry.
    4. Let the kids count the objects and read the book.

NOTE: 10 pages is a lot in one day. Another option is to do 1 or 2 pages each day during the week.
