Two-Piece Number Puzzles

From Jim Harris Picture Books

Two-piece number puzzles to make learning easy and fun!
Print as many number puzzles as you can use.  Cut each puzzle in half on the dotted line... and you’re ready to play!
Beginning students will enjoy fitting individual puzzles together.   More experienced “puzzlers” will like scrambling two or three  puzzles together and then matching puzzle-pairs by counting the dogs... or by finding interlocking shapes... or both!

Easy to use 7.5”x5.5” puzzles.  Print, trim to desired border size, then cut into two pieces along the dotted line.  Use puzzles individually to build hand-eye coordination,  or shuffle several puzzle pairs together for a matching and counting challenge.
