Number Line Fun!

HI everyone! It's Emily from Emmy Mac's Class! I'm so excited to be posting here for the first time! I have never been involved in a collaborative blog and I'm so happy to be part of this amazing group!

Here is my Teacher Deal & Dollar Steal for you!!!! 

Last year I decided that it was time for me to replace my old number line. It was in bad shape...let me tell you! I went to Scholar's Choice, which is a big teacher's store in Ontario, but all of their number lines were really... blah. So I decided that I would make my own. 

There were a couple of things that I was looking for in my number line.
First: I wanted it to be attractive to the kids.
Secondly: I wanted it to help my little ones count by 2's, 5's and 10's.

 I added red and yellow stars, to help students  count by 2's.

If students wanted to count by 5's, they could count all of the green numbers. 

What I like the best about my number line is the size. In my classroom I just post the first 50 numbers.  However, the number line goes up to 100! I also keep it down low so that it's easy for my students to reach and use. I love seeing my little ones up at the board using the number line to help  solve a problem.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Click HERE to take a look at the number line in my store! Remember it will only be on sale for 3 days! So pick it up quick!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for another great "Teacher Deal and Dollar Steal!"
