Back to School
Count the Room
(Quantities to 20)
Back to School Count the Room is a math variation of the student favorite activity “Write the Room.” This packet has 5 sets of 20 ten frames Count the Room cards and 2 recording pages for each activity to provide differentiation. The cards and recording pages have matching Back to School graphics. The Back to School graphics include a schoolhouse, a school bus, children at the bus stop, school friends in a line, a boy carrying a stack of books, and a girl sitting at a desk. These activities can be used for back to school or any time during the school year.
This versatile resource has differentiation options to best meet the needs of your learners. You may select the cards A-J to practice quantities to 10. You may use all the cards (A-T) to practice quantities to 20. There is a recording page for each option.
After you have determined the quantity you are addressing with this activity, you may choose from different response options to best meet the needs of your learners.
• Learners may write the numeral for the quantity represented by the ten frames on the card.
• Learners may write the number word for the quantity represented by the ten frames on the card.
• Learners may draw tally marks for the quantity represented by the ten frames on the card.
• Learners may write the numeral for the quantity represented by the ten frames on the card and continue counting by writing the next 2 numerals. For example: With a ten frame representing 7, the learner would write 7, 8, 9 as a response.
Print, laminate, and cut out the ten frames cards. Make copies of the recording page for the quantities you have selected.
Hang the cards in places all around the room. Give each student a clipboard, pencil, and recording page. Learners search the room for ten frames cards. When they find a card, they write their response in the correct space on the recording sheet.
Back to School Count the Room helps learners develop numeracy, and supports the Math Common Core Standards for Counting and Cardinality.
The graphics used in Back to School Count the Room are from Whimsy Clips, My Cute Graphics, and Heather Ayers of Fun for Learning.
