Fun with Buttons

Tracing Big Buttons
Tracing Shapes with Big Buttons
I love using a variety of things to teach a concept. We have been learning our shapes and colors. Today I gave all the kiddos large buttons (I purchased on Amazon - These buttons come in a variety of shapes and colors. First I had the students say the shape and color of each button. Then we traced the buttons to create pictures. They made things like houses, boats, game boards, people, and Star Wars characters. Tracing the buttons was also excellent fine motor practice. For some kiddos it was challenging to keep the button in one place while they traced. If your kids have difficulty with this you can use a bit of painters tape on the back side of the button to keep the button from moving around. After we finished making our pictures we then did a counting activity with the buttons. I gave the students a strip of paper with numbers 1-20. Then I handed them a handful of buttons for each student to count. By giving them the buttons I could control how many each student received. Some students are working on numbers 1-10 and other are working on 11-20. Once the counted the buttons they used the dot markers to mark the correct number on their number strip. This activity addressed one to one counting and number recognition. Everything is more fun with big colorful buttons! Number Chart Printable

  1. I've been doing a lot of research on special education advocacy and came across your blog. Thanks so much for sharing these amazing posts, I look forward to reading more in the future.

  2. I really liked this math lesson and the activities the students are completing. You show a lot of differentiation within this lesson and a lot of your other posts I have see. Is this something you keep in mind while palnning and what importance do you feel this has in your classroom?
