Weekend Warriors- Keeping up with Number Sense

Welcome back to Day 2 of Weekend Warriors!
So glad you all returned.
Here's the little rundown of what we are all about.
Today's math mania is all about number sense.
We entered that portion of first grade where my
students' brains are ever so slowly shutting off.
The sun is shining, plants are blooming and 
beach days are so close we can taste them!
School is less and less on my kiddos brains and
perhaps their teacher as well {wink}.
We did a random just keep them a little busy
worksheet the other day and
I had the opposite of an "aha moment".
I had and "uh oh moment"!
These kiddos needed some number sense practice and fast!
I created these little number cards 
and laminated them super quick 
because we had to turn those brains on full blast.
I also knew I needed keep these kids moving.
Sitting around doing pencil and paper
was not an option!
So we moved and grooved with our number sense practice. 
I gave every student 2 number cards.
I then set out 5 baskets with cards above
them labeled 1-20, 21-50, 51-75, 75-100, 101-120.
The kiddos came up by table and 
placed their cards in the correct section.
Then I assigned each table to a bin and they had to 
order the cards in their bin from greatest to least. 
Obviously there were gaps in the numbers 
because there are 120 cards and only 21 kiddos.
This was great practice for them!
 They did a great job!
After this we did a second activity where
everyone got two cards and there were 
only two bins up in the front- 
one for odd and one for even.
I was smitten as we were doing this to see a lot of kids
stop here to check their work with 
"Even Steven" and "Odd Todd". 
You can check out these guys and their friends 
"The Math Maniacs"here and here.
We then checked them as a group. If the answer
was correct the stayed standing and if the answer
was incorrect they had to sit.
Sorry I don't have pics for this part.
There are many other ways you can
use these cards as well to get your kids
up and moving with math.
Here are some ideas...
  • Hand out cards in sets of three & they have to find their before and after friend
  • Hand out cards in sets on 10 more or 10 less & they have to find the friend that goes with their card
  • Give each student a card, put them in small groups and have them order themselves from least to greatest or greatest to least
  • Have students pick a number and write a riddle about it
  • Have students pick a number and give clues to their friend about their number
These make a great little math warm-up
or a fun activity when you have the dreaded
10 minutes to fill and nothing to do.
They are also great for when their eyes
start to glass over.
Grab your own set of number cards here.
The possibilities are endless!

  2. We use a daily math routine with our Math Expressions program. It is more about practicing math every day and less about tracking the school days. We have a lot more focus on counting the days in the beginning of first grade, then at the end. They seem to outgrow it as the year moves on and we change things up. :)

  3. I tracked the days in school with popsicle sticks. We made bundles for tens and hundreds.

  4. I teach in a Resource Room and see my kids for about 30 minutes at a time. We don't usually use the number of days in school until be hit 100 days. We will sometimes use the number of days in school in our number talks.

  9. Oh, dear - we don't keep track at all. The other 3rd grade teacher used to write it on her board, and I always liked to see what the total was, but now she doesn't keep track either.

  12. Such a great idea! We keep track of the days of school by using 2 different types of place value charts. One that uses Tens Frames and another that uses straws.
