Desktop Number Lines - V2

desktop numberlines for schoolThis is an alternative version of our original Desktop Number Line. The download includes two 1-10, and one 1-20 number lines, each less than 30cm long; ideal for cutting out and laminating for use on a desk.

As before, each number line features mathstick characters; with the first version here, however, coloured blocks are used to reinforce the pattern of odd and even numbers.

The mathstick characters appear in blocks of 5 to show counting in 5's.

The 1-20 numberline can be matched alongside the 1-10 numberlines to further reinforce counting in two's.

The second number line is identical except that the alternating coloured blocks have been removed.

dawn147, 

Good to hear this is working well for you and your class. We have just posted another number line with a Car theme - you can see it here: Cars - Number Line.

I hope this one is useful too.

I used this today as part of

I used this today as part of a 'guess my number' game.  One player writes down a number between 1 and 20 inclusive.  The other player can ask questions like 'is it greater than 4?', 'is it even?', 'is it a multiple of 5'.  It went down really well - thanks mathsticks!

This is a fantastic resource.

This is a fantastic resource. I like the way the odd numbers are coloured green. This will be a very visual reminder for children. Thank you :-)
