Number Fun

1st graders are starting a new project. This is their first project where they use their rulers. This is great practice for 2nd grade. For this project, students are to think of a number between one and 20. They then draw their number large in bubble letters in the center.

They then outline their lines with a black crayons. Next, they color in their number with one color. All of the lines they have made with their ruler has created lots of different shapes. They are finally to color in their shapes with different colors.

We are using rubbing plates to create different textures. Our vocabulary words are:

  • Line

  • Texture

  • Shape

  • Center of Interest

  • Outline

  • Dark Colors
