One sheet of 8.5” x 11” paper makes one GrandStand.
Print GrandStands on index- or cover stock-weight paper in color or black/white.
THINGS TO DO:
Note that GrandStands can be used on a table or desktop, or they can be glued, stapled, or push-pinned onto a bulletin board.
1. Use these GrandStands with students who are learning or reviewing numbers 1-10. Have students observe and describe the graphics used on each display. Note the different ways each number is represented – tally marks, dot arrays, lines, written number, Real-World Print.
2. Collect flashcards, graphics, or photographs of objects that are usually a given number or they are graphicly pictured as a number. Display or sort them on the appropriate GrandStand. Examples: 2 wings, 10 fingers, 7 days, 3 Little Pigs
3. Make flashcards that use the number word with a noun and display them. Example: one dog, two cars. (See related products.) Students remove the cards from the display “read” them and place the ones they know to the left side of the stand and the ones they need help with on the right side.
4. Write student names on flashcards and have them indicate their favorite number from 1-10 by writing the number or the number word. Sort their flashcards onto the corresponding number GrandStand and make a tally chart to record the data collected.
5. Number-related photographs, magazine pictures, and student art can become cards that can be sorted and displayed on the number GrandStands.
6. Use GrandStands as a bulletin board throughout the school year to collect cards that have been used to record number-related words, phrases, and sentences that were read, heard, or observed in the following: literature, rhymes, songs, science (green frog, brown soil, orange butterfly) colors of the flag, more.
7. Matching Activities: Match the number symbol with its tally mark, word name, a graphic representation (3 flowers), dot sets, or Roman numeral for older students.
8. GrandStands are teaching aids that can be used to display many different forms of print: student writing, teacher notes, Internet print, quotes, and vocabulary terms. Use in stations or work areas.
9. The size of the GrandStand is perfect for displaying quarter-sheets, half-sheets, and folded sheets of 8.5” x 11” paper. Worksheets can be folded in half and placed on a GrandStand. MiniBooks and Side-by-Side Books can also be displayed.
When made using index-weight paper, GrandStands last for several years.
