Number charts reinforce letter and number recognition. Children make charts of important numbers in their lives.
What this activity will develop:
Math, art and language skills
What you'll need:
• Two construction paper circles (11-inch and 4-inch diameters) per child
• Old calendars
What to do:
Have your children use markers and rulers to divide the large circle into eight sections. Have them label the sections with personal-information titles that involve numbers, such as phone number, address, age, height, and so on. Then have them glue the small circle in the center of the large circle and write "MY OWN NUMBER CHART" on it. Cut the numerals they need in order to complete their charts from an old calendar and glue them into place. Encourage them to draw pictures to illustrate the categories on the charts.
