Bears in the Cave - Student Tracking Form - Numbers 1-20

Bears in the Cave - Student Tracking Form - Numbers 1-20
Product Description
I keep this at my guided reading table. Whenever we play "Bears in the Cave" I just do a quick check next to the numbers the students get correct. This helps me to know where the students are, but most importantly it helps me to quickly group students for math centers. I can have my higher students (the ones in the teens-twenties) quiz each other as a center. I can pull my lowest ones and work on them one on one.

There is one editable page for those of you who like to type in your student names. There is also one page that is not editable for those of you who like the cute font. If you want the best of both worlds...I used the font "GrandmasGarden".

If you haven't heard of "Bears in a Cave" before, here is a brief description...All you do it have your cute bear manipulatives out. Start with 2. Have students tell you how many bears are there. Have them close their eyes. While eyes are closed, put one bear under a bowl "Cave". When students open their eyes they have to tell you how many bears are in the cave. I have students put their number on their hearts so they are not yelling their number and distracting other centers. They get very excited!! I also make students tell me why they think that number. This is were the higher order thinking comes in. "I think 3 because one bear is outside the cave and two bears is inside the cave" is not an acceptable answer for me.

Hope this helps! Have fun! :))
