Earlier in the year, my first-grade teachers wanted an assessment that would allow the kiddos to show all they had learned about the numbers to 100 they had been working on.  We brainstormed all the different ways that numbers could be represented, and we came up with this poster.  A couple of notes:

  • While this file is 8 1/2 x 11, we printed them on 11 x 17 paper.  It gave the kids more room for their work and looked better when we put them up.  Look for the Ledger setting in your print properties and stretch it to fit.
  • The children self-selected their numbers.  This provided built-in differentiation.
  • We put a little paper flap over the My Number Is… in the center of the poster when we displayed them, making the display interactive.

  1. Thank you for posting this on Classroom Freebies, Too. It will be perfect for my mystery/detective themed classroom this fall. 🙂

  2. Your Ideas are inspiring. I have just added the number of the day to my classroom and love this twist on it! Thanks

  3. Thank you so much. I always have extra days after all my students have been “superstar” of the week. So this will be a great idea for each student to fill this out and share his/her mystery number! Love it! 🙂

    1. I’ll put it on my to-do list, but I can’t guarantee it any time soon. Also, our 2nd graders go up to 1,000. That might be pretty hard to do in this same way.
