“Counting and Comparing Numbers up to 100”
For Gifted and Talented Students
Please provide: A media player or computer to listen to the audio links, a printed version of the worksheet packet, scissors, and glue.
Gifted students require increased creativity and depth of learning.
Enhanced for Gifted and Talented students using the Common Core Standards:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.A.1 Count to 100 by ones. (WORKSHEET #1)
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.A.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1). (WORKSHEET #1)
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.A.3 Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects). (WORKSHEET #2)
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.5 Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects. (WORKSHEET #2)
Two Activity Assignments:
- The student listens to the recordings; a narrator is counting in groups of tens. One of the numbers of each group will be replaced by an animals sound. For example counting 31 to 40 might include a sheep sound instead of the number 33. The student writes down which number was replaced (or pastes a supplied cut-out of the number, which can be traced over), and then pastes a supplied image of the animal that spoke the number instead of the narrator. This is a fun exercise in counting and in indentifying animals!
- The student must practice writing numbers indecently in this exercise. They write the number they are to count up to, to the right of the printed number. Below they cut and paste an image that is a collection of objects. The image contains a number of objects that matches the number above it. This exercise is more challenging because the student has to count twenty different objects to distinguish which image goes where.
