Number Puzzle 1-20

The idea to create a huge number puzzle came from a friend of mine.  She is a school psychologist and she is working with a kindergarten teacher that is looking for new fun ways to teach her students about numbers and the different ways that number can be represented.  This got me thinking about what I could do to help!  So I created a HUGE floor puzzle that uses numbers 1-20.  Each number is represented in six different ways. ( the number, number word, tallys, tens frame, organized pictures, and non organized pictures)  All six ways a number can be represented align with the common core for Kindergarten. 

This product is for sale in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!  Number Puzzle 1-20

My whole class worked on this puzzle and had a great time organizing it!  After all of the puzzle pieces were organized and put together, I of course took pictures but I also put them into seperate baggies.  I ended up with 4 different bags.  One bag for numbers 1-5, 6-10, 11-15 and 16-20.  This way the pieces stay somewhat oragnized :)  Also, you dont want to be giving students numbers 16-20 if they really need work on numbers 1-10. 

The students in my class had a BLAST putting this puzzle together.  This was a center during math centers; this way every student got to help put it together! :)

Take a look at the FUN!
