Station 6: Counting on My Friends – Students draw a number and write it on the apple on their recording sheet. Then they write the numbers that come after.
Station 7: Best Friends – This game is played like your traditional (WAR Card Game).
Station 8: Count and Color School Supplies-Counting and recording numbers.
Station 9: Sensory Table School Supply Sort – This activity is meant to engage your learners who are kinesthetic, but it can also appeal to almost any student depending on what you put in your sensory table.
Station 10: I spy activities are a huge part of my classroom so this station will be used to help students explore using magnifying glasses and become acquainted with working with I-Spy activities.
Station 11: Linking Backpacks – This is a great fine motor activity for students and reinforces number order.
Station 12: Back To School Patterns – Self-correcting and independent.
