We have made this one easy to differentiate!
There are three forms to choose the one that is just right for your students.
Some options for using these daily number activities include:
- Morning entry task – students can complete as they enter the room each day
- Math center – this could be a daily or weekly math center
- Small group practice – for students who need guidance, a number of the day activity might be a part of your instruction in small groups
You know your students best! Number of the day activities can provide meaningful number sense practice for your students who need it. As students master skills, we like to phase out how often students complete this activity.
For some students, this type of activity might become busy work. This is always when we work to find something new that will fit their needs!
You might choose to give students a number or let students use the number cards we created.
