Ladder CountingTake some masking tape and tape a ladder form to the floor, with each "step" about 1' apart.  Put the numbers 1-10 on index cards with a magic marker and tape them in the upper left hand corner of the rung/step. Use flash cards to have the student draw (or hand them any number).  They then have to jump "up the ladder" a step at a time, counting as they go, until they reach the number on their card. Students who are observing can help with counting to reinforce their numbers.

Fold the paper in half the wide way (like a greeting card) and punch holes around three edges leaving the top open. Attach a piece of yarn to the end corner and have the children lace it around to make a "bag". Give each child a copy of the printable below and have them color and cut.
