This printable Math Center activity involves counting by FIVE.
Filling in missing number patterns, in both ascending and descending
order. Print, laminate, ready to go! These are re-useable too!
Students need to count forwards and backwards, and they need to become familiar with the missing number being in different positions in the pattern.
This set has 54 activity cards
with a footprint theme.
Print, laminate ready to go!
This is an extension of my other counting cards sets, because now the activity demands that students count by larger missing numbers.
54 squares (approx 8.5 cm square) with a simple number pattern at the top, and a choice of 3 numbers underneath.
I also use as a whole sheet activity, and ask children to circle or mark the correct answer.
I usually cut and laminate the squares.
The task could be to clip a peg on the correct numeral; but you could also mark with counters, etc.
Students need to learn to count forwards and backwards, and they need to become familiar with the missing number being in different positions in the pattern.
I think this prepares students for more difficult number pattern work, because it encourages them to think.
There are similar sets counting by other numbers.
I have this set and the others individually
