How Does It Work:
After deciding on cards you want to use- either picture cards, ten frame cards or a combination of both...
*Hide/Tape pictures around the room.
*Distribute recording sheets to students on clipboards (or have them lean on a hardcover book if you don’t have enough clip boards)
*Provide students with heart shaped monocles (optional) to make the activity even more 'love'ly!
*For picture cards: Students count the amount, find the same picture on the recording sheet and write the number they counted
*For ten frame cards: Students count the amount, find the letter that corresponds to that ten frame on their recording sheet and write the number they counted
*Differentiation can occur in many different ways:
~more/less picture/ten frame cards
~use the templates provided to make customized recording sheets
~Have students work in pairs (high/low)
The following CCLS can be supported with this pack:
This is one of my students' favorite centers! They love being 'investigators' around the room!
Make a perfect math or 'game' center all month long!
