This primary math resource contains 5 separate activities to help your kiddos build number sense as they order and sequence numbers by value and work with the hundred and two-hundred chart structures.
Ordering Numbers ‘til the Cows Come Home! is a sort and write center activity designed to help students practice ordering numbers in value from lowest to highest. Students work individually or with a partner to order and record. The activity may be used multiple times with answers that change depending on the cards drawn.
Barnyard Number Sequencing/Ordering Activity (whole class) is a way to get your students up and moving and an opportunity for dialogue as students explain their thinking. Print, cut, and pass cards out in mixed order to students. The number-holders stand in front of class and display their numbers while other students take turns rearranging their positions to order them lowest to highest and tell why. Mix and match sets to make additional number combos.
Cut and Paste “Quick Check” Number Strips may be used any time as a formative assessment tool. Are your students understanding and retaining the concepts of number order and sequence? Are they able to order numbers by value from lowest to highest? Have they learned that numeral position (place value) determines the value of the number? Students cut, order, and paste numbers to the recording pages.
Around the Farm Number Sequence Fill-Ins are practice pages that are progressive in difficulty and may be used as homework, classwork, or assessment. Differentiate by assigning pages based on student levels or using with or without a hundred chart for support.
Cut, Shuffle, and Reassemble! activities help students practice number sequence by ordering rows of ones and columns of tens as they work to construct a hundred (or 200) chart.
Each page contains strips of sequential numbers (by 1’s or 10’s). Give each student (or pair of students) the page(s) to construct the chart by ones or tens. Provide each a piece of construction paper to attach the strips/columns by pasting them down. Have teams compete to see who can build it first!
