Preschool Corner: Workbox Number Cards

I had every intention of posting a different printable this week, but I've been so wrapped up in getting our workboxes pulled together that my focus was a little swayed.

Some of you may be wondering what workboxes are {I'll soon be posting about the system and how we're using it this year} and some of you have already been sucked into the workbox realm. Making the workboxes fun and appealing to both me and the kids is important, so I asked both boys what they wanted on their number cards. The answers were 'Chicken Little' and 'Nemo'. And then Zachary saw the Chicken Little ones and decided he wanted Monsters, Inc. instead. Since I can fit two sets on a page, I had to throw in a Bug's Life too.

Click on the graphic to download and print the document.

The printable has two pages of number cards with the four different character sets above. I'll be printing off two copies - one for the boxes and one for their number strips. Stay tuned to see how we're all piecing it together!

If you are wondering about the different colors, we color code our kids. Yes, I'm serious. Each one has their own color - makes it a whole lot easier to figure out what belongs to who. Blue is for Zachary and green is for Kaleb.

While I'm in the midst of planning and re-organizing our upcoming school year, the world around me hasn't stopped. So share, share, share!! What all have you been doing this last week?

  • These are cute cards! Clicking on the image gave me an error, but the other link loaded the .pdf after a while. Of course, Nemo was my favorite :) I am curious how your workbox system will work out and can't wait to read more.
