A number line teaches the concept that numbers occur in a fixed pattern, not randomly. This means that the order of numbers never change. A six always follows a five, ten always goes after nine, and so on. Children with great number sense know how the sequence of numbers goes. Putting numbers in sequence is an important basic Math skills which will help your child develop Number Sense and build a solid Math foundation.
Students love drawing and doing puzzles. No matter what time of day it is or what part of the school year it is, they are always so excited when they get the opportunity to do draw and solve a puzzle. Students use their knowledge of numbers to go from one to the next in the twisted number line that is a Dot to dot puzzle.
If they do it correctly they'll end up with a clear picture of something fun. For this type of connect the dots puzzles children are not given obvious hints as to what the picture is, preventing them in this way to simply draw the lines guided by their intutions about what the picture is. Instead they do need to rely their knowledge of the number sequence from 1 to 100. For this activity, they will only need a pencil, but if afterwards they want to color their creation then they'll need coloring pencils too. The bundle includes 100 unique pictures. The solution of each picture is presented in the first few pages of the booklet.
These activities combine both a puzzle and hand drawing to practice fine motor skills. The suspense of what the picture will turn out to be, makes this activity engaging and fun.
Students can check their work by spotting something off with their picture or by checking the answer sheets when they feel they are done with their work.
