Teaching Resource

Mini Number Books (1-20)

PDF, Word | 20 pages|Grade: F

A set of little books to assist younger students with number recognition and understanding numbers 1-20.

Use this teaching resource as part of your maths rotations in the early years classroom. This resource includes a little book for each of the numbers from 1-20.

To make the mini-books:

  1. Print the little books at their ‘actual’ size and do not reduce or enlarge it. This will ensure the page edges line up without trimming.
  2. Once printed, fold all of the lines on the page, including all of the horizontal lines and all of the vertical lines.
  3. Open the piece of paper and then re-fold again along the middle vertical line.
  4. Cut the dotted line between pages 2, 3, 6 and 7.
  5. Open the piece of paper and then re-fold the paper in half along the middle horizontal line.
  6. Push pages together so that all the pages are on the outside. The cut section will open out in a diamond shape before folding in on itself to form a mini-book.

Hi Tim, it isn’t available in NSW font however, there is a Microsoft Word template you can edit yourself. Thanks for your comment.

Hi, are you able to use the same activities but in a worksheet format so it can be glued into a book rather than folded into a mini book? Thanks 🙂

It looks great but am unable to use it as it doesn’t have Qld Beginners font. If you were able to make this an option it would be greatly appreciated.
