I presented this activity to Miss D(3) today morning and told her what to do with it. She did two sheets – one with numbers 6-9 and the other with 11-14. She did the 6-9 in a breeze. Named the number, color, pointed out the numbers among the jumble and put the appropriate stickers on them. She finished one number at a time(all 7’s) and then moved on to the next.When it came to 11-14, she needed some help naming the number, then did the rest by herself – pointing & naming the number, color and place the matching stickers on it. She made sure the labels covered the numbers entirely. I could say she was so proud of herself when she was done. π
