After talking about how we can represent numbers in different ways (number, dice, ten frame, tally marks and number word), I had each child make their own sheet with their favourite number.
They chose which number they wanted to colour, then they had to represent that number in a ten frame, on dice, with tally marks and write out the number word.
They had a lot of fun doing it, and it was a great way to get them to work on their number sense and have a visual of all the different ways they can show their numbers.

The printable includes numbers 1 to 10, a sheet with 3 ten frames and a sheet of blank die faces. For the number word and tally marks, I just gave them a blank square of paper to write on.
