Building number sense is the first foundational step to building fluency with numbers. To have a concrete understanding of numbers is so important for later grades. These number sense activities will provide children the opportunity to explore and learn about numbers in a hands on way.
This system is easy to set up and since all of the items are together it makes a super fast and easy math center. The task cards will go in one container, the manipulatives in the other container. The mats and response sheets will be in the color coordinating drawer!
Ten Frame Activity Boxes
Count and Lace the Beads
This set includes task cards 1-20 with cute animals on them. The student will count the animals and then add links to the bottom of the card to show the number. Again, accountability is available by using the link mat and the response sheets.
Roll The Dice
This set includes number cards 1-24. The cards are in one box, dice in the other and then in the matching drawer is the response sheets and mats. Students will roll the dice (1-4 die) find the number card that matches and record their answers.
Base Ten Blocks
Students pick a task card, use base ten blocks on the mat and then record their answers on the response sheets.
Put one or two sets of sample number books in one container for students to look at and the other container can hold the glue sticks to make their own book. The drawer holds the printed copies for the student to use to create their number masterpieces. Each book has 5 ways to show the number and then a practice the number and the number word tracing page.
This set is the only one that doesn’t have a coordinating drawer. Each number has 4 puzzles so you can add 2 full number sets to one container and have the students put together the puzzles or you can add numbers 1-10 in one container and 11-20 in the other. This set also comes with a half size number posters and practice pages.
