So----first LOW TECH---
Go to this blog--No Time for Flashcards. This is a great website, by the way. Many of the directions are provided in sequenced photos which kids can understand. One teacher I work with uses those photos to make her centers. The photo of the craft I thought would be super simple is here.

|pom poms are matched to corresponding numbers.|
Depending on the level of the child, the complexity of the task could be differentiated. You can keep your numbers below ten or even below five if needed. You don't even need numbers but can use colored dots, if the child is only able to match color to color. If you are interested in the above low-tech activity, go to the website mentioned above---No Time for Flashcards. It's a great site!
Now HIGH TECH!
I saw the tree fun, and then thought that this activity could also lend itself to a Smartboard lesson. (Our classrooms are fortunate to have these!) Here is the link to the Smartboard activity to download: Christmas Tree by Numbers
I did not think of the low tech fun (the No Time for Flashcards mom did that), but the Smartboard creation is mine. I can't wait to try both out for our last two days of school next week!
