Numbers About Me

Here is a great activity that mixes math and creative writing.  Print out the Numbers About Me template here. 

Ask your child to color and personalize the booklet cover and then fold it in half. Staple a stack of 3” x 4-½” blank paper inside the folded cover. Then challenge your child to think of numbers that describe himself/herself. If they need some inspiration give them an example, such as “The numbers one, two, three, and six describe me. I have one nose, two thumbs, three pets, and six children.” Have your child list in the booklet the numbers that represent him/her and a brief explanation of each.

I like this!...combining creative thinking with math. I think I would have done better in math, with these kinds of exercises as a kid.

Thanks so much for coming by Mommy LaDy Club, and for your lovely comment. It's always nice to know that your own words have impact:)
