This Interactive Math Notebook targets Common Core standards for Counting and Cardinality (Part 1: Numbers 1-20). The 20 interactive activities are perfect for kindergarten students to practice and review key skills. Additionally, students work towards completing an incentive puzzle! Each activity has one puzzle piece in the bottom right corner. When students complete an activity, they cut and paste the puzzle piece onto the corresponding number on the provided grid. This method increases student motivation and allows teachers to easily track student progress through the activity pack. Activities increase in difficulty and build upon prior learning as students advance through the activity pack.
This Common Core aligned Interactive Math Notebook contains the following...
-Common Core Standards
-Preparation and Teaching Instructions
-Notebook Name Labels
-20 Interactive Activities (1 puzzle piece per activity)
My students complete 1-2 activities per week in a small group center. In addition to modeling the math concept, I model how to cut on dotted lines and paste neatly into their notebook. Observe and guide while students complete the activity. I use the activities for formative assessment and to show parents during conferences.
