This is a quick, easy and fun back to school activity. Students color their calculator their favorite color, and then complete the writing prompt: "By my calculations it's going to be a great year because..." Add a school photo for the finishing touch.

This is a wonderful extension after reading The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. The packet includes large 8x10 number cards from 0-10, with a blank one to program with higher numbers. Use these as flashcards or to play games with. There's also a 0-10 mini booklet for students to trace, write and put lipstick-ers on, to show "how many" in the group/set, along with a blank page to reinforce larger numbers. There are also trace and write worksheets for numbers 0-100.
