Number lines for sale
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Number Sense number line.
We have designed a number line that is perfect for use in any classroom situation. It is easy to use as it rolls away neatly while still providing a large number range. On the reverse side it is graduated and since it is made from a durable PVC teachers can write on and wipe off using white-board markers.
Here’s why we designed a number line of our own:
Research has shown that young children need to physically use the number line to develop their sense of number. The concept of ‘muchness’ is developed using a number line because children get the sense of how far it is between numbers. On a number line it is a relatively long way between 5 and 25 and a much longer way between 5 and 85. If we compare this to a traditional counting chart 5 and 25 don’t seem too far apart at all.
After many hours of working in schools we have realised that the number lines available to teachers can only be stuck up at the front of classrooms. This means that they are difficult for children to use during group work because either they are too far away from where the group is working. Furthermore these number lines are not good for using on the mat because they are made from flimsy card and come in sections. In response to a need for portable, durable number lines we have designed our own.
The Number Sense number lines are made from PVC and can roll up to a small size. They can be used for group work so that children can unroll the number line to where they are working that day. The number lines are perfect for using on the mat, or with dirty fingers because they can be wiped down between uses. The number line has two sides: one with numbers and the other side without numbers so that teachers can write on a wipe off sections for teaching.
