Counting Workstation

How is this for a Math Workstation...

I bought these cardboard letters at the teacher store. There were 3 of each number. On one set I put stickers to help those who are not identifying numbers yet. The other sets I left blank. The kids will match clothespins to the corresponding number. Again, I love this station because it builds in a fine motor component which is so important early in the year.

I <3 your blog! So many wonderful ideas! I have a little guy who has special needs and although he's in an integrated program it's only half I work a lot with him here at home.

I can already tell that I'm going to spend lots of time here!

I found your blog though a pin that I re-pinned on my pinterest board. I wanted to thank you for providing fun, hands-on activities that are inexpensive and easy to create. I have already tried several of your ideas in my pre-k class and I look forward to trying some more. Thank you for teaching and for sharing!
