12. Spinner with 3 numbers and a programmed sheet with the 3 numbers at the top. Student spins and then writes the correct number underneath it’s heading. Students can work with partners. This is a lesson in probability and number recognition. The object is to see which number comes up the most.

13. Number books: have students complete each page with the number of objects designated for the book. Math their way has great ideas for these books: eg. we start with the number 5. Each book has a unifix cube pattern – student makes a pattern with 5 cubes and records on page,. Toss 2 sided beans (5) and record how many white or red beans you have ( fact families). Stamp 5 stamps. Stick 5 stickers. Make a pattern with 5 paper pattern blocks. Make a design with 5 toothpicks. You can add as many pages as you with. I also include some number writing pages.

14. Sand box and number cards. Students draw the number in the sand. You can also use hair gel and pudding in two plastic bags – one enclosed inside another.

Pages: 1 2
