I invite you to come along with these amazingly cute Winter characters as you learn and master the skills of counting, number identification, ten frame reprsentations, tally marks, number words and skip counting!
Numbers in the Snow: Math Mini Unit is a hands-on learning activity, aligned with Common Core, geared toward students in grades Pre-K, Kindergarten, or First Grade who are working on counting, number identification, tally marks, and skip counting. Included in this download are pocket chart number cards (1-20) which include the digit, ten frame representation, and tally marks (Number word cards are also included). Use these number cards to give a mini-lesson or refresher during whole group. Once you are done, these cards could be simply displayed for reference or placed in a pocket chart as a Math center along with the other games and activities from this set.
This download also includes a puzzle game where students look at the digit on one puzzle piece and match it to the correct set of tally marks on another piece. The puzzle pieces have a self-correcting quality which makes it a wonderful learning tool for independent learning. The student will know if they made a correct match when the snowflake in the middle is complete and correct. The puzzle includes the numbers and tally marks for 1-20 (Feel free to contact me if you would like a different number range and I will gladly create one for you—firstname.lastname@example.org).
Plus, this set also includes a game of memory match-up. One card has the number and number word with a picture and the matching card will show the same number represented by tally marks and the same picture. By including the picture on each card I have made it self-correcting (same picture on botgh cards if they have a correct match) in order to be used independently.
Once students have been exposed to the puzzle and matching game for a while, you can assess their understanding with the 5 printable activity sheets included. The winter theme is transferred over to the printables. Each printable includes directions and were created with different learning styles in mind. Thank you for visiting my store!
