Write the math problem on the front in marker, and then write the answer on the back with a highlighter.

Write "How many ______?" at the top of the page and draw a line at the bottom of the page. Laminate, punch holes, and bind with book rings. Children take the book and count the various objects in the room. They use a vis-à-vis marker to write the number on the bottom line. Click for larger image |
