Composing Music with Math Activity for Kids: "I chose to aim this activity at Gresham’s math level (finished 2nd grade, starting 3rd grade in the fall), and so I used the numbers 5, 10, and 15.

How To Build Your Own Backyard Playground: None of these things are expensive and that's how a child's play space should be. If there is any great truth about an outdoor classroom is that it should be continually evolving and adapting, a hodge podge of old and new and everything in between....

Connect matching pairs of sight words (or letters, numbers, whatever) with string on the floor.

Once the paint was dry, I used a permanent marker to write a number on each flower. Each colour set contains a set of ten numbers (so the 20s are all blue, the 30s all pink) but the numbers within the sets follow a slightly irregular line.
