Number Sense Activity Number Sense can be difficult to teach, so I created this activity to help my students' number sense and to understand the facts that make up a Fact Family and Number Bond.
The CCSS expect students to move from a concrete representation of numbers, to a pictorial representation using pictures, and lastly to an abstract representation with numbers.
This activity is taking the students through all three steps to see how they each relate to each other. This activity is aligned with the CCSS for Grade 1 (1.OA.6) and Grade 2 (2.OA.2). You can also use this activity for third graders who are struggling with number facts, fact families and decomposing numbers.
Included in this download is:
- The Story of 10 Mini-Book with detailed directions on assembly.
- A Ten Frame that can be photocopied for each child to use. I included two tens frames on the sheet to conserve paper. Print out the Ten Frame on a thicker cardstock and cut it down the middle. You can laminate each Ten Frame for durability to last for many years.
- If you do not want the Mini-Book cover to print in color, just print in grayscale or use a photocopier.
