We are having a lot of fun with our Peter Rabbit theme this week. If you missed it earlier, here's a link to my post about our Peter Rabbit themed sensory tub. I'm so happy the kids enjoy this story as much as I do! (Well maybe not as much as I do, but that's only because I REALLY love this book!) I also decided it was time to change up our trays this week, so here's a look at the first of our Peter Rabbit themed trays.
We have been working a bit on sight words with my four year old, so I decided to make a tray to help him with recognizing the number words by sight. I made these self-checking cards by writing the word for each number on one side of a blank index card and writing the corresponding digit on the back. I used zero through ten.
I use a piece of black construction paper folded in half for a work mat. And there's a cup holding all of the cottontails (simply cotton balls!) He selects a card and counts out the correct number of cottontails.
And if he gets stumped or to check his work he simply flips the card over to see the number.
