My Counting Book
This is early counting resource has large numbers and colorful pictures. Make a book for your reading resources in the classroom, and children can make their own books for their book collection at home.
The pages in this book measure 7 ½ in. (19 cm.) square.
Markers or crayons
Glue colorful pictures and large numerals to each page.
Print the words clearly. You can pencil the letters onto the page using a stencil, then outline the letters with a marker.
Laminate the pages for durability.
Children can make their own counting books.
Provide shapes and colors that are easy for children to sort and count. These scallop cards make nice pre-cut pages that are easy to hole punch.
1. Outline spaces indicating how many objects will be placed on a page. I traced around a lego block with a black crayon.
2. Children can add stickers to the boxes and also choose the corresponding numeral to place at the top of the page.
3. For younger children, draw the numerals at the top of the page so they can match them with self-stick foam numbers.
