Here is a little number activity I quickly put together to add to my math shelf for fall. I just used some silk fall leaves that I think I found at the Dollar Spot in Target. I used a black Sharpie marker to add numbers to them and placed them in a wooden bowl on the shelf.
To do this activity the child simply places the leaves in numerical counting order. When placed correctly the leaves form a pattern by type of leaf (i.e. oak, maple, oak, maple, etc.).
Here is a close-up of the leaves. This activity could be adapted to include more numbers, skip counting, or even alphabetical order. In addition to being set up as an independent individual activity, the leaves could be passed out (one per child) during group time and the children could line up in numerical order according to the numeral on their leaf.
