Counting Flaps

We have been working hard around here with our counting and number quantities.  Using some file folders that I cut down, I made some counting flaps.  This flap is just to ten but it can be added onto.  There are five flaps per folder and I taped them together with duck tape on the back.  The quantity is on the outside and the number underneath.  You could write the word on the outside and the number underneath.  There are many possibilities.

Grabbing the flap and lifting it involves some fine motor skills as well.  If you child is young you could even uses pictures and do a peek a boo game just to work their fine motor skills.

  2. I gotta try this one! I have a bunch of old folders just taking up space in my filing cabinet.
