Retractable Number Line and...

We had to unscramble a sentence.

We had to figure out what the number line rule was and then we counted by 2's and filled in the missing numbers.

 We put our spelling words in alphabetical order.

My BRILLIANT coworker thought of this interactive number line. Use a retractable clothesline (we got them at home depot for $18) for a classroom number line that you can use in an instant and then put away just as fast. We also used it to create sentences, spelling, alphabetical order, etc. the possibilities are endless!!! We've used string in my classroom before but I love how accessible this is.
Here's what it looks like:)
