DIY Easy Number Line Craft

Our little learners have been very interested in numbers and how they relate to each other in equations. They have been adding and subtracting small numbers for several months. I happened upon cute character workbooks in the local dollar store and they LOVE them!

One page has a number line at the top for easy reference and I found them going back to that page for the number line. I drew one on the wall…er….chalkboard but it was difficult because they would have to keep getting up and down to use it.

LIGHTBULB!

We were due for a craft and our supplies have overflowed out of their designated homes so:
