The 1st activity is all about Number Sense. This activity really shows its true colors. You will be able to see which students have number sense, know their place value, and those that understand simple addition and subtraction skills. All three of these skills are tools students need in math to understand everyday math concepts.
To see which students have number sense, start with card number 1:
You, the teacher, reads the card to the students as the students add and subtract until they are at the final number. Did everyone land at the final number? if not, what happened? Did they add instead of subtract? Are they using their fingers? Did they miscount? Try another card to see if students are landing at the correct final number.
This activity can be used for a quick math lesson or for small group time.
