You're very welcome Chrissy!
sometimes we forget how hard this can all be for a small child. Thanks for this insightful post. We have not had to move countries, but my kids do attend an immersion school.

Thanks for this freebie, I can’t wait to try it!! Curious do you leave this down throughout the year or are you always having to tape it back down each time.
Thanks so much

Hi Christy! I make the number line when it is time to practice addition and subtraction. I leave the taped line down but not the cards. Enjoy
A very nice and interesting way to learn and play! My children will love it!
