There are two different sets of the same documents in this product. One set includes space for a student’s name and the date. The other set does not.
The set that does not include space for a student’s name and date, I recommend printing on cardstock and laminating. These can then be used multiple times with dry erase or wet erase markers at a math center, for modeling, or for student practice and gradual release.
Additionally, this set could be enlarged at a local printing company or education agency to be made into classroom posters and anchor charts.
If documentation of student work on the laminated sheets is needed, consider photographing the students work and creating a collage of the student’s work. This can allow stakeholders to see the level of success a student has with different numbers.
The set of documents that includes space for a student’s name and the date works well for pretests, posttests, and checking for understanding. Print back-to-back if you would like a student to demonstrate two numbers.
Consider printing multiple copies of these sheets and combining into a comb-bound book, spiral bound book, or three-ringed binder to use for morning work, bell work, extension work, or a homework packet.
There are sheets in this product that have outlines provided for the specific, asked for drawings (dominoes, dice, ten frames). The other set of sheets does not include these outlines. These outlines and lack of outlines allow for a greater diversity of numbers to be studied, while also allowing students and/or instructor to choose the level of structure needed for success. In any case, all the outlines may not be needed to display a certain number. Within these documents, there is space for up to four dominoes, eight dice, and four ten frames provided via the outlines. Otherwise, students or instructors can draw these themselves.
Differentiation is easily accomplished with these sheet by assigning different numbers to different students.
Encourage students to use colored pencils, colored pens, markers, highlighters, and crayons when completing their sheets. I believe this helps to increase interest and engagement while helping students to recall information.
Students can work in partners or small groups to share and compare.
Consider sending a laminated copy of one of these sheets home for students to share with their parents and practice at home.
If using laminated sheets individually, with partners, in small groups, or at a center, students can use digital random number generators, a deck of cards, dominoes, and/or dice to determine their featured number. Dice can be kept in weekly medicine containers to keep them from rolling away from the working students.
