**A fun, hands-on number rhyme activity to help students sequence numbers and count forward and backward from 1–10.**

Use this resource in your math classroom when learning to count forward and backward from 0–10 and when working on one-to-one correspondence when counting. This activity is great to use when singing the number rhyme ‘Ten in the Bed’.

This resource includes:

- 1 x bed with dotted cut lines
- 1 x bed without dotted cut lines
- 1 x strip of teddies from 1 to 10
- 10 x individual teddies numbered from 1 to 10.

This resource can be used in the following ways:

**Number Slider **

- Print the bed with the dotted cut lines and the outlined strip of bears.
- Cut out the outlined strip of bears, including the ‘pull me’ tab.
- Laminate the bed and the strip of teddies.
- Cut along the dotted lines on the bed.
- Feed the strip of bears through the slot on the right-hand side of the bed. Make sure the bears go under the blanket!
- As the student sings the number rhyme, have them pull the tab so that the bears slide off the bed, one by one, from 10 to 0.

**Magnet Bears**

- Print the bed without the dotted cut lines onto cardstock.
- Print the individual bears onto cardstock, then cut and laminate.
- Attach a small magnet to the back of each bear.
- Display the bed on a whiteboard and place the bears on the bed.
- As the student sings the number rhyme, have them remove the bears from the bed, one at a time, from 10 to 0.

**One-to-One Correspondence**

- Print the bed without the dotted cut lines and the individual bears.
- Cut out each bear.
- Ask the students to put a specific number of bears in the bed.
- Alternately, have a stack of digit cards that students flip over to determine the number of bears to place in the bed.

This activity is great to use in a math center or your guided math group.
