Understanding Number

Wow!  Did you read this week's blog post on Math Work Stations? If you haven't, click on over to Kindergarten Crayons.




As I read this week's chapter, I could not help but wonder how this would relate to the California Common Core Standards.   Here is an overview of what math may look like in kindergarten.
To read the entire document, click on the image.

I created these Number Cards which you could use with your class as part of your Math Routines.  They work well when teaching Counting and Cardinality.  Give students individual ten frames (located in the back of the book) to count and practice with you.  Show students two cards and have them compare the numbers.  When you feel your students have mastered these place them in a Math Work Station along with your classroom created I Can Chart.  
Who doesn't love puzzles?  Inspired by the number cards, I made Number Puzzles.  All you will need to do is print onto card stock paper, laminate and cut.  Wondering where to cut?  Well, that is up to you.  For students who can read the number, you will make them a 3 piece puzzle.  Great for early first grade students.  Or if they are just beginning to understand number, make a 2 piece puzzle instead by cutting out the bottom third. 
I'm planning on copying onto different colored card stock paper so that I can have more than one student working on this concept but a different work stations.  

Happy Teaching and Learning!



PS-  Is is just me? Or isn't this blog book study the greatest!  :)

  3. Dear Mrs. Parker,
    Thank you so much for linking up with me and making these cards. They are perfect for my kids. I teach all number knowledge in a grid and I love the puzzle idea. I am in California so I will be looking at those core standards this summer carefully. I appreciate all the hard work you have done. There is so much talent in Blogland.

  9. This book study is great! It is always fun to talk (even via web) with folks that are as excited about teaching as I am. Too bad we cannot all be in the same building! Virginia

  16. I love your number cards and puzzles. Do you have the numbers up to 20? I teach first grade and up to 20 would be great for the beginning of the year for us. I would be glad to purchase if you have them on Tpt or other teacher store.
