19 matching and sorting Number Sense activities suitable for Grades K through 1.
Addition bricks (1), (2) and (3). Three practice activities with basic addition facts. The first addend is between 0 and 2. The second addend is between 0 and 5. The third addend is between 0 and 9. Bricks switch positions each time the activity runs.
Addition to 10 (1) and (2). Children add two numbers on one set of cards to match the second set of cards with totals between 2 and 10. Add two numbers to make totals between 2 and 10. A second differentiated level of this activity re-orders the sequence of the cards.
Blues and twos multiplication. x2 multiplication practice. Children total up the number of studs on the plastic bricks and complete the multiplication equation. The layout will change each time the activity runs.
Complete the sequence. Practicing sequencing, children complete 5 rows of sequenced numbers between 1 and 99. Number & Operations in Base Ten
