1 to 20 Clothesline Number Cards

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF, Word | 10 pages | Years: F

A set of clothes themed number cards to use in the classroom when creating a 1 to 20 number line.

Use this teaching resource in the classroom during maths lessons or as a group task when learning how to identify and sequence numbers from 1 to 20.

Print, cut and laminate each number card.

With pegs, ask the students to attach the numbers to a piece of string in sequential order, creating a clothesline of numbers.

For a challenge, have some of the numbers already attached and ask the students to identify which numbers are missing from the clothesline.

An editable version of the resource is also available to download via the drop-down menu.

    Is there any possibility of the Clothesline Number Cards being available as an editable page so that my 2/3s could use them to create number sequences e.g. counting by 2s, 3s, 5s etc.?
