My goal was to create an activity that would be versatile enough for you to implement in a variety of ways. Here are some ideas for centers, small groups, or whole groups:
-Print several copies of the work mat and laminate them. Students can fill in their own numbers and symbols. You can also call out numbers for number writing practice and then have students share their answers.
-Print, cut, and laminate the numbers and alligator symbols in addition to the work mat and put this in a center. Students can write record answers on the answer sheet.
Numbers included go up to the hundred thousands place, with black having varying digits, blue having as many as the first 2 digits the same and red having the first 3 digits the same.
