I’m so excited that Fall is on its way! It’s my favorite time of year and I love sharing it with my kids.
I created this set of four free pumpkin puzzles to work on number order for the numbers 1-40. Each puzzle has a different set of numbers to give kids practice both reading the numbers and putting them in order.
The puzzles are great for kids who are just starting to learn to count to 100 because the pictures will help correct them if they get a number out of order.
There is one puzzle for each of the following sets of numbers: 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, and 31-40. By using the same format, kids can concentrate on putting the numbers in order rather than ‘how’ to put the puzzle together. In addition, the puzzles are self-checking because if a number is out of order, it will make the picture incorrect.
You can also have your child put the puzzle together and then while they cover their eyes, remove one or two pieces and have her figure out what numbers are missing.
To prepare the puzzles, print them on paper and laminate or print on cardstock. Laminating will make them more durable, but if you only plan on using them a couple times, card stock will work.
Cut out the puzzles and then cut on the solid lines in-between each set of numbers to create the strips of the puzzle.
To start, give your child one puzzle at a time. Once he is confident with putting a couple puzzles together, you can mix them together for an extra challenge, requiring him to sort them and then put the puzzles together.
I hope that you will enjoy these pumpkin puzzles as much as we have! They will be great for having some fun on a chilly fall day!
