Numbers Busy Box (Workbox Wednesday)

numbers busybox Numbers Busy Box (Workbox Wednesday) | Line upon Line LearningThis week I thought I’d send some fun numbers activities and games in my daughter’s workbox. I’m finding that because she’s such an active one, I’ve got to give her lots of active games each week. I can picture her spreading these games out on the floor to enjoy.

  1. Numbers (1-5) tubes. I found this activity on Pinterest (see the blog post here) and I loved it! I was able to replicate it without too many difficulties, and Strawberry enjoys playing with the set.
  2. Ducky Counting (posted as a freebie at my shop). I made this a few months ago. My daughter loves her ducks!
  3. Numbers counting mats. This was an inexpensive game I bought for my son when he was young. My daughter likes matching the numbers and the backside has places to match the items to the correct room it belongs in.
  4. Self-Correcting Number Puzzles (1-6). These game from a larger game (afflink) that I got years ago! I only selected out the 1-6 cards so Strawberry can play with a limited number of puzzles at a time.
  5. Puzzle Counting Book. Books are so much fun when they are also puzzles! This Caillou book was a gift (afflink).
  6. Miscellaneous picture books about numbers concepts. (not pictured). I have 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and Chicka-Chicka 1-2-3 (afflinks). I may find more to add in!

What do you do to introduce number concepts to your young child?

ABC Letter Tiles

My son and I enjoyed playing Scrabble and other word-building games. But while Raisin and I are playing, I needed to find a way to keep 2-year-old Strawberry happy, without her grabbing our tiles! To keep her busy, I created some word templates for her to enjoy building words too. ABC Letters Tiles are fun for all letter-recognition levels! My son likes matching letters on templates too.Continue Reading

Workbox Wednesday (October 21)

Today it’s Workbox Wednesday again! It has been a crazy week, and last week Strawberry did not finish all of her ABC activities. So I’m sending most of them back again, along with another fun LeapFrog game that asks the letters.

I’ll be back next Wednesday with another unique workbox! Meanwhile, link your post up below!

Workbox Wednesday: ABCs Workbox

abc workbox Workbox Wednesday: ABCs Workbox | Line upon Line LearningStrawberry loves the LeapFrog videos that teach the letters. She is quite adept at recognizing letters (especially uppercase letters) as we go about our daily life, and often recalls the LeapFrog word most frequently associated with it. Thus, the “C” is “Cold” and the “H” is Hot.

I decided to send a few letter activities in her workbox this week. She’ll loved it! Here’s what I had for her.
