Label 10 workstations (desks, tables, carpet areas, etc.) with a sticky note containing a letter A - J. Place a number of cubes at each station (I use 11 - 20, but you can customize this activity to suit your counting needs). Make a copy of the recording sheet for each student (I usually record the number of cubes at each station on a recording sheet for my benefit). Students then rotate through each station counting the cubes and recording the answer on their recording sheet.
Correlates with Common Core Standarda:
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects). CC.K.CC.3
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. CC.K.CC.4
a. When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object. CC.K.CC.4a
b. Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted. CC.K.CC.4b
I am currently in my third year as the Math RtI teacher at my K-3 elementary school. Previously, I was 3rd grade teacher for 6 years and a 3rd/4th grade special education resource room teacher for one year.
