### As Promised...All About the Numbers 7, 8, 9, & 10

As promised I am including file folder activities for the following numbers: 7, 8, 9, and 10. These activities will take me through until Christmas Break. I will start working on activities for 11 - 20. So stay tuned for updates and additions.

The number file folder games contain the following activities:
• Number Mats - Which can be used as playdoh mats, children can drive matchbox cars along the path of the numbers, or they can use dry erase markers to trace the number.
• Number Pattern Blocks - There are number pattern block mats and pattern blocks to print.
• Sort the Number by Color.
• Sort the Number by Size.
• Number Puzzles
• Number Work Mats- Each number work mat contains cards with the numeral, its name, ten frames, and corresponding number of objects representing the target number.
• Can You Find the Number…? Children can find and circle the target number out of a grid of numbers.
• Number Line: The number line enables children to see the number in numerical order. The activity encourages the children to write the missing number using the number line as a visual guide.

### Jack and Jill Resources are Finally Done!

I have finally put the finishing touches on the Jack and Jill Resources. I have included Go Fish Cards, ~ill Rhyming Word Bingo, Rhyming Activities, Pocket Chart Cards/Bean Bag Cards, Train and Caboose illustrating how the engine changes but the caboose (ending of the word stays the same).

One note on the links to the downloads. I am using Microsoft's SkyDrive to upload and share the files. The only downside is if you decide to download a link it will ask you to sign in to SkyDrive or create an account. This service is free, that is why I am using it for now. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Jack and Jill Resources Book – Is a full color collection of hands-on resources to accompany the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill. The resource book contains a (2) page full color poster illustrating the nursery rhyme. There are pocket chart word cards/bean bag cards, a full page of engaging activities to use with the Jack and Jill Resources. There is also, ~ill Rhyming Word Bingo, and the train and caboose illustrating the ~ill Sight Words.

Jack and Jill Go Fish – Is a full color set of cards illustrating the vocabulary words, sight words, and ~ill rhyming words associated with the story. The Jack and Jill Go Fish Card game was designed to go along with the Jack and Jill Resource Book.
