This is a quick, easy and inexpensive little gift that you can have lying on your students' desks for that first day of school. Be sure and write their name on the puzzle to make things extra special. These can be precut to expedite things, or to give yourself some extra "sanity" time, you can have students cut up their own puzzle after they have colored the picture.
Children glue the pieces to a sheet of construction paper, leaving a little space in-between the pieces for a mosaic effect. Packet comes with number puzzles from 1-10 for little ones, plus some skip counting by 10's options for first graders. There are 30 puzzles to choose from. Besides the black and white puzzles that students can color, I've also included some color copies to laminate, trim and use in an independent center for early finishers.
