If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know just how much we love math task cards.
They make fantastic quiet time activities and are a great way to work on numerous skills at once.
These craft stick number task cards, for example, work on counting, number recognition, and even fine motor skills, all with a single activity!
Number Craft Stick Task Cards
Included in this set of number building task cards, you’ll find ten different half-page cards, one for every number 0-9.
Each card includes the number shown as made with both short and full-size craft sticks and includes space below for your child to write in how many craft sticks they used to build the number once they’re done building and counting.
Now, we’ve used regular, full-size craft sticks in the past to make these numbers and haven’t had an issue, but we have recently started using the short, half sticks as well and the kids love them!
They definitely make the numbers that you build look a whole lot more like the ones on the actual cards and really emphasizes that they’ve built the number correctly.
To prep these task cards, you simply need to print them out, cut each page in half, and run them through your laminator.
Not only will laminating them make them more durable, but you’ll also be able to use them over and over again.
Once they’re ready to be used, simply set them out in your math center with a set of craft sticks and a dry erase marker.
Have your child make each of the numbers using their craft sticks and then have them count how many they used to make each number and write their answer on the line below.
