Counting to 5 (1)-(3).

An introduction to numbers 1 through 5.  Three differentiated activities in a series of recognizing and ordering numbers 1 to 5. Suitable for PreK/K and also SEN.

 

Missing Numbers (1) – (8).

Missing number sequences. A range of eight activities where children have to fill in the missing numbers in sequences between 1 and 35. At this early stage we are trying to get children to see integers in groups of five. Hence 5 black beads followed by 5 yellow beads etc. Use these ordering number activities to help your children become comfortable using double digits and remembering their numbers up to 35. These activities will help them become familiar with these larger numbers and feel confident using and pronouncing them. Using this introduction to double-digit numeracy and numerical value, children will gain more confidence in their counting and numeracy skills. Mastering the numbers between 1 and 35 will be a gateway into further Mathematics skills such as simple adding and subtraction.  Ordering numbers is an activity to teach students the concept of numerical value.

C.C. K.CC.1: Know Number Names and the Count Sequence. Count to 100 by ones and by tens. K.CC.4a: Count to tell the Number of Objects.

 

Ten frames addition to 10.

10 frames addition to 10. Children use black counters on the top row and yellow counters on the bottom row to fill the 10 frame.  They add the total counters used and complete the (blue) addition sum.

 

Ten frames - how many?

The aim is to get children used to seeing numbers in banks of 5.  Five black counters on the top row and five yellow counters on the bottom row to fill the 10 frame.   Children drag a number that is required to fill each 10 frame.

 

Ten frames counting to 10

Once again, the aim is to get children used to seeing numbers in banks of 5.  5 black counters on the top row and 5 yellow counters on the bottom row to fill the 10 frame. Children count each frame and decide how many counters are in each one.

 

Bee5’s memory game

Using the Bee5's abacus students will:

  • Develop number sense strategies using 5's and 10's as anchor numbers.
