Number Wheels

Here is a fun little activity we did last week and it’s VERY easy to make!  We made enough for three children to do this center at one time.

What you will need:

We started with a large circle shape and added 12 smaller circles around the outer edge.  Make the numbers look like a clock.  Print, laminate and you are done with that part.  Here is an up close view:

Next, you make the cards to go in the center of the wheel.  The cards you make will depend on what skill you are looking to target.  We made cards with circles (1-12) for counting and matching to the numbers as well as cards with the number words to match to the numbers for our older kiddos.  Use Velcro to attach cards to the circle. When matching, the children take a clothespin and clip it on the correct number, which also works on fine motor skills.

Although we didn’t do this, you could also make numbers for the cards so kiddos can match the same looking numbers.  This could also be done with letters, shapes, animal pictures or anything really.  Kids really enjoy using the clothes pin, so take advantage until you see the excitement start to dwindle.
