Balloon Number Cards

Maths Game - Number CardsThis is a two page download featuring a mini-poster and a set of 10 number cards.

The mini-poster features 10 numbered balloons and could be used as part of a display or as a table-top mat for specific children. This makes an ideal "show me..." type maths activity. Children could also place a matching number of counters or beads at the end of each balloon's string. 

The balloon colours have been chosen at random, but the numbers have been arranged so that the odd/even alternating pattern is easy to identify.

The 10 number cards follow the the same 'balloon' theme and can be used in any counting, ordering or matching game.

Great to hear our teachign

Great to hear our teachign resources are being used as maths displays - that's one reason why we always focus on quality and colour. Yes, I know it can be expensive in terms of ink... but most people find it is worth it!

Thanks for your comment. If you get chance, post us a photo of the display and we will share it here.

Cheers.

Jessica,  Can you state what

Jessica, 

Can you state what the problem is? Download issues are fairly rate...

Have you had problems with other resources, or just this one? Which browser are you using? Mozilla and Chrome are by far the most stable, but our downloads work even with tatty old Internet Explorer. Finally, are you sure you have located the correct 'attachement' link at the bottom of the resource post?
