Improve number sense at Christmas time in your kindergarten students for numbers to 10 with this easy to prepare, easy to implement math activity.
Your kindergartners can count to 10, or 20 or even 100. But you ask them what number comes after 8, your most struggling learners start counting back at one to figure it out. They know the count sequence but they don't understand the count sequence.
Understanding the count sequence means more than being able to recite the numbers 1-10. The standards state that an understanding of the count sequence includes being able to count to 100 by ones and tens, counting forward from a given number and being able to write the numbers 0-20.
One of my favorite kindergarten activities includes numbers 1-10 on simple bunting flags. I hang up a line of yarn about eight feet long across two file cabinets and allow my students to hang the numbers up on the line. By being strategic, you can level and differentiate this simple activity to allow your students to develop confidence and fluency where they are and slowly push them to a deeper level of understanding of numbers 1-10.
