“Count by 5s” is an interactive Notebook math program for people with special needs and young general education children who are being introduced to the concept of “Skip Counting”. I designed it for first graders with autism at the request of the teachers in our school and have received very positive feedback on the results. I believe it will be effective and engaging for general ed kids, as well.
The students place number tiles into a grid, located above the tiles. Some of the pages have the numbers already in the grid, for matching purposes, while others have the grids blank. The exercises become more challenging as the lessons progress with features such as fade out and tracing available.
The icons are interactive with movements and voices. As always, you can disable these voices by turning the volume off on the Smartboard. I’ve also included illustrated instructions on how to add your own voices, instead, should you choose to take this route.
There’s a simple printout sheet at the end. Although it would be easy enough to make one yourself, this one has the bear and snake on it, for the sake of continuity.
