Interactive Number Line

I took a STEM (mostly Math) workshop the first two weeks after school got out this year and after listening to our instructor talk about Number Lines, I decided I wanted to make one that was more interactive than just a line of numbers stuck on my wall.Ā  I wanted my kiddos to be able to use it and grab parts of it if they needed to; so I came up with this number line!

I’m super excited that my kiddos can un-Velcro any card they might need to help them identify numbers.

Right now, the number line only goes to 10, but I may increase it to 20 if I think my students need it.

I’ve represented each number in a variety of different ways to meet the needs of my different learners:

  • tally marks
  • dice
  • ten frames
  • unifix cubes
  • rekenreks
  • finger counting
  • number word
  • number
  • base ten blocks

The number symbol goes at the top and it permanent. Each of the cards below hangs on a ribbon and is attached with Velcro. {The Velcro is not included}.

Photo directions are included {and so is a diagram!}.Ā  You can get yours from my Teachers Pay Teachers store! šŸ™‚

  1. What STEM workshop did you attend? Did they give you any valuable lesson plan ideas for kindergarten? Our school is working towards being a STEM school in the fall. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Lisa Schneider

  2. When I saw the title I thought it was one of those ones you can walk, which I’ve used in the past. This is way better and takes up so much less room while providing so many different learning modalities!!!!!! I LOVE it!!! I might use your idea!!!!!!!!! šŸ˜€
