*Common Core Number Sense Routine with a Number of the Day or the Calendar! Download the preview (it’s free!) for a quick glance at this meaningful daily math, strong in Number Sense!
I developed this Daily Math for one reason- my kids need strong number sense! I found a lot of the existing “number of the day” or calendar activities had great skills on them, but it was too much for my first graders. It took too much time to complete with time, money, writing days of the week, and more for example… They were exhausted and so was I. What they really needed the most was depth in Number Sense! It’s ALL important, but this separated the skills I felt they didn’t get enough of.
This daily math routine can focus on any number of the day up to 30, or use the date as your number. The work is heavy in Number Sense for the Common Core. There are many ways of showing a number, and understanding the number. Deepen number sense in a consistent routine by:
-working with a number line- counting forward and backward
-drawing the number with a 10 frame
-determining odd and even with the 10 frame
-finding tens and ones using diagrams
-utilizing “more and less” with words and equations
-showing their thinking on a math problem created from a fact family
-writing the number in tally marks
-finding the location of numbers on a 100’s and 120’s chart
-utilizing a hundreds chart to cement +/-1, and +/-10
2 days are on one sheet. These can be passed out daily, cut in half, or made into a booklet. Choice is all yours! I’ve included a cover if you wish to make this into a booklet and a cute 100’s chart AND 120's chart. There are 19 sheets containing different graphics that little guys like in order to keep interest for the kiddos. Hopefully yours will get a little smile when they come to a new day in this routine. There are 2 days on each sheet, so that’s 38 days with different graphics before repeating.
What you get:
~19 sheets (2 days each) with different graphics for variety. ☺ (Also, the more than/less than skill varies with numerals and words.)
