My Numbers 1-30 unit can be used for a multitude of purposes: number recognition, patterns, base 10 block matching, creating sets to match the numeral, calendar pieces, and so much more!
The cards allow students to practice recognizing the numbers 1-30 in a game format whole group, small group, or individually for assessment purposes. Students can pull a card and count out that amount. Two students can pull a card and decide who has more by creating the set. The uses for these cards is truly limitless!
My students enjoyed hiding the "special card" and having other students guess where it was hidden. They enjoyed taking ownership of their learning and playing the role of teacher which kept them engaged for longer periods of time.
If you utilize these cards for your calendar, you can cover the following patterns:
Do you have a group that needs to be challenged? No problem! Give them clues and have the students try to guess the number. For example, the teacher could give clues to help them guess the mystery number with more than, less than, or give in a tens and ones format.
Before Teachers Pay Teachers, I would spend $3 - $4 per pack for calendar numbers. Even if you only used this packet for that purpose, it is a fantastic deal! On top of that, my students loved this activity and asked to play it during free choice center time! That is a win-win if you ask me!
There is also a January-June packet. You can find it here:
