Number Stamping FREEBIE!

I promised I would use the number stamping book I made this week and I did! 
Here it is just so you know what I'm talking about!

The book was pretty simple to put together and I mixed up the pages on purpose so it wouldn't be in order. I just copied them back to back and folder/stapled them. Our copy machine will actually do that for you....but I still haven't figured that out!

I have a TON of tiny stamps that were donated to my class many years ago. They are all sorts of different things and this book was perfect for them. Students grabbed a stamp and counted out whatever number was on the page. Like this....
 or this...
and this!
Some of them were really organized and careful and some of them were a hot mess! However, the most important part was that they were all counting and keeping track of their counting. At one point one of my little guys was interrupted and I overheard him say, "Oh great, now I have to start all over again. This is a disaster!" So much drama :)

The only thing that I would change is I wouldn't do it as a whole group activity. Yes, I tried. Yes, it was dumb. It wasn't a disaster (well, for my little guy it was!)  but it was hard for them to all reach the stamp in the middle of the table and I didn't have enough to make it work as partners. So this works best as a small group activity.

There you have it! Here are the stamp pads (the ones I used) in an affiliate link. They have them in all different colors and they are washable.



I hope you enjoy this activity. We had fun with it and it is definitely a keeper. Thanks for stopping by today!
