So, instead of feeling bad about being late for this week's Made 4 Math Monday post, I've decided that, instead, I'm just extremely early for next week's Made 4 Math Monday post.
This project was actually on my to-do list for my first year of teaching, but I never got around to it. I wanted a number line to hang on the wall of my classroom. I know that you can buy number lines at a teacher store or online that are relatively inexpensive, but I decided to make my own. After all, I take any and every opportunity to use my handy, dandy laminator. (I've had it for a year now, and it is one of my most used possessions!)

If you are interested in the posters hanging on my map railing, they were downloaded from the North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics website. Last year, I used these posters to create a math-themed bulletin board in the back of my classroom. This year, I have different plans for that bulletin board, but I still wanted to feature these posters in my classroom.
