I’ve been super busy this week making some fun new printables to share with you! Among them is this fun set of back to school puzzles for counting to 10. Super easy to prep, so that you can spend time learning instead of preparing to learn.
Materials needed for the FREE Back to School Puzzles:
Paper and/or card stock
Laminating pouches (optional)
Scissors or paper cutter
To prepare the puzzles, simply print and laminate if desired (if you want to use the puzzles more than once, I highly recommend laminating.)
Then cut them out on the lines.
For a younger child, I give them one puzzle at a time.
For an child who needs a challenge, I give them 2-3 puzzles mixed together and have them sort the puzzles as they assemble them.
These puzzles are especially great because it’s easy for the kids to see where the missing pieces should go. That way, when they miss a number, they can easily see that “6 goes in between 5 and 7” because the picture doesn’t look right.
Here are some other fun ideas for practicing numbers:
