I bought these cardboard letters at the teacher store. There were 3 of each number. On one set I put stickers to help those who are not identifying numbers yet. The other sets I left blank. The kids will match clothespins to the corresponding number. Again, I love this station because it builds in a fine motor component which is so important early in the year.

"Look how tall I am": Measure each child (could use themed images instead of yarn)- afterwards put different tape measures in maths area to encourage kids to measure things around classroom.

Cute idea for measurement common core- do a few times a year. Read Big Dog, Little dog, and then measure each child to see how tall they are. Make a chart for display, and leave out the measuring tape for a few days!
