It's Raining Numbers! An Ordering Numbers Activity
This is an activity to be used with a small group. It can be used in whole group with children ordering the numbers in a pocket chart. I created this activity because my kindergartners were having problems ordering numbers/amounts if they weren't in sequence (11, 12, 13, 14). One of our common core standards is to sort objects, count them, and order them from smallest to largest (12, 15, 18, 20). After using this activity first whole group in the pocket chart and then at literacy stations, my children had no problems.
Give each child one umbrella of each color with the same number in the top left corner. So one child will get 6 different colored umbrellas with number 1 in the top left hand corner. Another child will get the cards with 2 in the left hand corner. Another child 3 and another 4.
The children will look at the numbers in the purple raindrops. They will color an umbrella purple on the recording sheet and write the
numbers from smallest to largest on the raindrops beside that umbrella. They will continue with each card.
