Flash cards!

It might be summer but I am trying to keep Jackson up with his alphabet and his numbers. Since it is a big part of learning!

Target has there Up and Up index cards (and crayons) for $.25 and they have a coupon when you buy 4 (school supply) up and up items get $1 off. So hello freebie!

I started with the alphabet and but the index cards in half. I made upper case on one side and lower case on the other. Hopefully this will help him be able to start matching his alphabet! I also made 3 prefixes for him to match with different letters to spell new words. Hopefully it will help him start to read.

Then we made number flash cards.  Same way as alphabet flash cards just cut the index cards in half.   I made the numbers from 1-20 with spelling them out on one side.  Then from 20-50 by 10’s. This way I can use the previous 1-9 words and match them with the higher numbers, (IE. 25- twenty-five, 37- thirty-seven, ect). I also made a few flash cards 1-10 with shapes on them for little man to count.

Jumping Numbers

              Action Jackson is full of action tonight! He is jumping over everything including the dog! So instead of him landing on the dog and getting bit I made jumping pieces. Construction paper taped to the ground with numbers. Every jump over the paper he has to tell me the number! We did numbers 1-10!
What you need:
  • Construction paper/ Craft paper
  • Pen/ Sharpie
  • Tape

Step 1:

Take your paper and fold it length ways fold it 4 ways.

Step 2:

Write your numbers on your craft paper. You could do the alphabet too, but that is a lot of paper. I would hope you have a long  hallway.

Step 3:

Tape down your numbers. I didn’t measure because I have tile floors and I just well kinda went with it! .
