This is a great resource to use for math groups, Daily 4 Math rotations, or as an at home math activity!
You will find match-it cards for the numbers 0-20. Each number is represented 3 times, as a numeral, Word Form, and quantity.
Suggested game variations:
-Use only numberals 0-10 and their corresponding quantities. Introduce word form cards as students learn the words.
-Do the above with all numerals, 0-20.
-Have students practice matching numeral and word form, leave the quantities out.
-Use lower number for younger children, and higher for older children.
-Turn cards face down and play match-it.
-Have students put numeral cards in order from least to greatest, and then have them place the quantity and/or word form cards under the numeral cards for a quick assessment.
-Use any of the three representations as a grouping activity. Have students choose a card from a bag, and then tell the studetns that chose 0-4 to be in a group, etc.
--The possibilities are endless!!
What's worked for me with these cards?
-I printed each type of representation on a different colored piece of paper. For example, all of the numeral cards are on yellow, all of the quantity cards are on green, and all of the word form cards are on blue. This way, when students are playing a game of match-it, they know they should turn over one of each color instead of having to hunt for a numeral, word form, and quantity.
-I made enough sets so that my students can work in pairs with the cards for Math with Someone during Daily 4 Math.
-I laminated the cards so that I am able to use them next year (hopefully!).
-If you make multiple sets, write a number (or letter) on the back of each card in the SAME SET. For example, I have 9 sets. One set has the number 1 written in the corner on the back, another has 2 written in the corner, etc. This way, if they get mixed up, you can very easily sort them back out without having to play match-it yourself! :)
Phew! I hope that helps some! Please let me know if you have any questions. :) I'd LOVE to answer them!!!
Thanks so much! :)
