Hi Laura
I just tried this activity in my maths group rotations today (4 and 5 year olds). Some of the children really worked hard to get the work done. For those that found the work engaging, the rewards were great. Thanks for a great post.


Im so glad your "back". I have been secretly admiring your blog. I run a home daycare and love, love the montessori idea about teaching children. Your ideas are a great hit with the children in my care and also thier parents.
Thanks a bunch!


WOW! What a great idea. thank you for sharing!


Love it! I have already made up a similar activity for my Prep class of 4 and 5 year old children. Although it isn't a Montessori school, I am using the activity during our rotation groups (3 in a group) and I have made up the same activity in 3 baskets using 3 different punches.

This is a great activity! We do something very similar using chart stickers. It's sometimes difficult to find the really small ones, but I have a couple of sources on line & change them out seasonally also.
For our really young students, we have a sheet that has only one box after 1, two boxes after 2, three after 3, etc. It's more of a 1:1 correspondence activity then, but still very beneficial.
Thanks for sharing!!
