The 21 reproducible worksheets in this product constitute Unit 6 in the MathQuest 1 workbook. This unit focuses on manipulating concrete materials and using pictorial representations to help students associate numbers with visually-displayed sets. Students learn how to identify and create sets of 6 to 10 members. They also learn how to print the numerals from 6 to 10.
This unit begins by introducing the ordinal words up to fifth, at the same time providing a short review of numbers to 5. The numbers from 6 to 10 are introduced individually, with activities that provide plenty of opportunity for the children to create, identify, and label sets of 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The introduction of each successive number is based on the children’s knowledge of the previous number: 6 is one more than 5 and 10 is one more than 9. This “building-block” approach increases the children’s confidence and ensures that the new number fits within the existing framework of knowledge. These activities emphasize the use of manipulative materials for every phase of developing number concepts. The teaching of the numbers from 6 to 10 is embedded in the context of the nursery rhyme "Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary.” Mary’s garden provides a fertile context for counting flowers, tools, and insects.
