Kelly's Kindergarten: Can't get much simpler: beads, pipe cleaner and "number flags" glued to the top create this easy peasy counting center. To stick the numbers to the top, blank white labels can be folded in half over the top of the pipe cleaner.

"Multiplication color by number (lots of varieties) This is an online activity that would be great for early finishers, or for kids who need extra math practice!" :: Some of my young grands are just plain smart, and like fun stuff like this!

Perfect for my little guy starting kindergarten this year, and also for my daughter starting her Freshman year in High School (who struggles with math story problems).
