Teaching students number sense and counting should be hands-on and interactive! Using a variety of fun materials teachers already have in their classrooms, setting up stations will be easy! This station pack comes with NINE meaningful and engaging math station ideas/printable games, paper practice and challenge activities to extend learning, and station labels and a personal student checklist to monitor their own learning at each station.
1. count and write numbers to 25
2. subtilize numbers using tallies, ten frames, and dot pictures
3. add 1 and subtract 1 within 20
4. recognize and order numbers to 100
5. form numbers correctly
6. recognize number patterns
7. identify and tell the value of the penny
They will do all of those above skills through HANDS-ON activities like...
*Packing treasure boxes with jewels!
*Shaking, spilling, and sorting pennies!
*Punching/stamping number strips!
*Collecting teddy bears!
*Creating beaded number lines!
*Building Lego/snap cube towers!
*Creating Play-Doh numbers!
*Assembling hundred chart puzzles!
I plan to use these stations the first few weeks of school to review numbers, build number sense, and allow my students to PLAY and LEARN all at the same time!
