Subitising Cards – ten frames. Use these cards for standard and non-standard Subitising flash cards. Color copy and laminate. Hold one up at a time and ask what the students think the answer is. Don’t recount them – ask how do you know it is 5? They will build up their language over time by saying I see 5 or, 4 and 1 or, 3 and 2 or, 1 and 4 or, 3 and 3. This builds to a greater number sense
Matching numerals to words to collections - Print and laminate, cut leaving a small border around the edge to show green paper. Numerals go to 125, it is important to go beyond 100 so that they can bridge over tens and over hundreds words go to twenty and can be matched after sequence is complete. Tasks Use as flashcards – say numeral also ask what comes before and after. Sequence numerals on the floor to 125 in a small group. Match words to numerals. Show the collection for each number using bundling sticks or counters
Patterns - Copy and laminate. Use on the floor or place magnets on the back to use on the whiteboard to model how a pattern can be made for girl, boy, girl or boy, boy, girl, boy, boy. Copy and laminate. Use to make patterns with children who are having difficulty with making patterns Worksheet for assessment.
Missing numbers - Print and laminate these for different groups depending on their learning need. Students use a dry erase pen to write in the missing numbers. Check with a buddy if they have recorded the correct numerals. Use number charts from around your room for children to check their work
Coins in the pot - Copy and laminate the pots for the gold coins. Decide which coins you will use. If you use the $1 coins the total should match the numeral on the top. If you use the $2 coins you can talk about doubles and counting by 2’s
Friends of ten – rainbow facts - Copy and laminate the cards. Withdraw one card at a time and then record your operation and answer on the sheet provided
Number lines - Copy the worksheet and use six sided dice. Model the task first. Then encourage students to try the next two number lines on their own. On large pieces of paper students can make their own number lines and use the second page of hats to place on the number lines. Don’t forget to encourage them to record the dice as thrown and the equation
Number Scrolls - The next page can be copied for each student and used at the beginning of a lesson to discuss mental strategies. Students can go forward or backward, they can start at 0 or a non zero starting point. They can count by ones, twos, fives, tens etc. Once completed students can check their responses using a calculator or a buddy can check them. Students also love using just very long thin pieces of paper to use as number scrolls
Location task - This is like a treasure map – hunting for the gold at the end of the rainbow. There are 2 copies – one for color and one for color. There is a sheet for students to make up their own
Days of the week - Copy and laminate. Use them to sequence days, months and seasons. Match up months to correct season. Have charts around the room to help with these games. Worksheet – roll a 10 sided dice and then write the correct day of the week in the right spot. For numbers 8, 9 and 0 you get to choose a day to write in. Play against a buddy and see who gets all the days written in first. If you roll the same number twice you miss a turn. Roll a 12 sided dice for the months of the year – rules as above. The season sheet is just for placing the correct months in the correct season.
