This number concept bundle includes 4 activities to help build students number concept and guide their understanding of the relationship between written, spoken and visual (set) numbers. These activities can be tailored to your students needs (for example, I use these activities with my special education students, as well as an intervention for students struggling to understand the concept behind a hundreds chart and place value, i.e. each numeral on a hundreds chart represents a specific quantity). I print these activities and laminate them/put them in page protectors for math centers so students can use dry erase markers and use these over and over to cement their understanding.
Activity 1: introduction to hundreds chart - visual representation to help students understand the concept behind a hundreds chart and see that as they move to the right and down the chart, the numbers (quantities) become larger and increase in a pattern).
Activity 2: Provides further practice with the hundreds chart - great for assessing understanding of place value (rather than rote counting ability) - color-coded to further enhance and support understanding.
Activity 3: Practice writing numerals to match a quantity. I have my struggling students/special education students practice this in page protectors to help them build understanding of the relationship between a numeral and a set (theory and concept of number). For higher students. I cut these and laminate them to use for matching activities and as visual aides for adding (given a numerical or set addend and a sum, draw the numeral or set that when added makes the sum). You can also do variations of this, having students find different ways to make a number or sum, having them find the first or second change, etc. This is great form math centers and can be tailored according to students needs and modified throughout the year to reflect their growth!
Activity 4: This activity is great for baseline assessment of students understanding of spoken, written, and visual representations of numbers and the relationship between them. I use this for struggling students/special education students to scaffold and build upon their concepts of numbers and to provide a structured path for learning these concepts independently in math centers. This is a great highly visual, more concrete and active learning activity for struggling students to promote independent learning and engagement when you cannot provide one-to-one or small group instruction.
These activities align with CCSS: 1.NBT.1, 1.NBT.2
