This is a lovely idea I saw in my colleague Kati's classroom. I had to make one for my class and share it with you.
It is easy to set up. Put the printed pages into page protectors and slip into a binder. (I have included a cover for the binder.)
You will need the JUMBO glass gems for the activity. This activity requires adult supervision with those discs. This is not recommended for very young children. Be wise. You can also use large flat river rocks.
The children put the gems on the letter.

So fun and so simple!
Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you a lovely weekend.
I love this idea! It would be fun to do with numbers, too, and have the kids put the correct number of gems on the page. They do love those gems! 🙂 I just found your blog. It has so many great ideas and I love how it is set up. I just started a blog and would love you to stop over. 🙂 Carolyn

Carolyn! I actually made a number binder as well with dots to count. I will try to post it! Heading over to check out your blog!
My children are loving using these and are beginning to show interest in numbers do you have these available as well?
They are a wonderful resources to pair with Loose Parts and more! Glad you are seeing growth in that area! It’s a wonderful thing to see children discovering!
The ones pictured above were from a previous co-worker. It is really simple to make! We do however, have a plethora of resources similar to this in our exclusive Wonder Tribe! With access to all of my courses, special guest speakers, downloads, our updated monthly investigation packs chalk full of ideas as well as printouts, and more! I’m including the website for you to check out and see if you may be interested in this!
Do you have a sample of the math numbers you made?
