As the summer days bring warmth and joy, it’s essential to keep our children’s minds active and engaged. And what better way to accomplish that than through interactive and hands-on activities?
In this blog post, we will explore a series of engaging July Math Write the Room activities designed to make learning math an adventure. These activities are not only educational but also incredibly fun, encouraging children to actively participate and develop their math skills in an enjoyable way.
The Power of Movement and Interaction
Math Write the Room activities involve placing counting cards around a room. Children then move around the space, searching for these cards, counting the objects and writing the number on the recording sheet.
It’s an excellent way to promote active learning while adding an element of excitement to traditional math lessons.
By incorporating these “July Math Write the Room” into your child’s routine, you’ll be providing them with an opportunity to reinforce their number sense, number identification, and number writing skills.
Practicing Counting Numbers
We created these printable resources for children who are learning to count up to 20. Typically, kids in prek, kindergarten, and first grade would be working on numbers to 20.
Here’s how this resource will benefit your child’s counting skills:
- Reinforces Number Recognition: By actively counting sets of objects and looking at the number line to write the numbers, they will reinforce number recognition between numbers 1 to 20.
- Promotes Counting Accuracy: Along with number recognition, the activity also builds one-to-one correspondence. Each number card has a set of summer themed objects for the kids to practice counting.
- Engages Multiple Senses: By physically moving around the room, searching for cards, and handling them, children actively participate in the learning process. This hands-on approach stimulates their kinesthetic learning style, making the activity more enjoyable and memorable.
- Encourages Active Learning: Rather than passively sitting and listening, children actively engage with the numbers and objects around the room. This active learning approach promotes deeper understanding and retention of the concepts being taught. By moving and interacting with their environment, children become active participants in their own learning, leading to greater comprehension and mastery of counting skills.
- Provides Differentiation Opportunities: This resource offers flexibility in terms of difficulty level, making it suitable for children at various stages of their counting journey. Younger learners can focus on numbers 1 to 10, while more advanced learners can explore numbers up to 20. This differentiation allows you to tailor the activity to your child’s current skill level, ensuring they are challenged but not overwhelmed.
- Fosters Independence and Confidence: As children successfully find and count the numbers, they experience a sense of accomplishment and build confidence in their counting abilities.

With summer-themed visuals and colorful designs, the resource creates a vibrant and captivating learning environment. The connection between the activity and the time of year enhances children’s interest and makes the learning experience more relatable and enjoyable.
Moreover, the resource incorporates the use of number lines, which serve as a visual aid and support children’s understanding of numbers. The combination of appealing visuals and tactile elements adds an extra layer of engagement and promotes a deeper understanding of numerical concepts.
