Need to help your kids more concretely develop their number sense? 'Number Detectives: Number Investigations For Early Learners' is just what you've been looking for! With 'Number Investigations', students are given the challenge to become 'Number Detectives' on a mission: In a series of "Case Files", children get an opportunity to truly understand and internalize each number (from 1 to 10) as they investigate that number in great detail. Students are given the chance to practice number recognition, counting, writing numbers, one-to-one correspondence, subitizing, and LOTS more with each Case File they undertake. Classroom-tested and teacher-approved, Number Investigations are sure to make your students smile while they learn!
**Want to take a look at one of the Case Files? Check out the Preview--the entire first File is included!**
Once the basic process and structure of the Number Investigations has been learned, students are usually ready to independently complete the subsequent Case Files on their own--as seat work, in a math center, or even as homework!
Keeping track of "closed" (completed) Cases is a breeze for both you and your students with the included PUNCHCARDS (both black/white and color version are provided, for your convenience). Just print one punchard for each child and punch the number of the Case File on each child's card as they complete it. For additional progress tracking just for you, a MASTER RECORDING SHEET has also been included. This tool helps you to see, at a glance, the status and progress of each individual student in your class all at the same time!
When all ten Number Investigations have been completed, students can go home with either a WRISTBAND or a CERTIFICATE recognizing their efforts...or BOTH, if you choose! Both black/white and color versions of each have been included. These rewards celebrate each child's accomplishment, as well as provide a home-school connection that gives students a opportunity to discuss with parents what they are learning and how much they know!
Your download also comes complete with ILLUSTRATED ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS for your Case Files, COMPLETE LESSON PLANS, MAGNIFYING GLASSES for student exploration and more!
All clip art, frames, backgrounds, and borders included are my own--all completely original. They are protected by copyright, as is this product in its entirety. If you plan on sharing this product with your team or school, please purchase additional licenses, which are available at checkout.
