Number of the Day

This collection of nine different number of the day worksheets will fit well into your daily number sense practice.

Providing students with number of the day practice is a great way to help children build their number sense skills.

This collection will provide you with a variety of options so you can find a fit for your students.

This is another free resource for teachers and homeschool families.

These free number of the day worksheets will give your students a daily dose of place value practice.

We think having a number of the day can be a great morning entry task that sets a daily routine in your classroom.

These pages might also be used at a math center.

Finding a fit for your students

We have made this activity easy for you to differentiate in your classroom. Choose the page that meets the needs of each student. You can also provide more than one number of the day for students ready for a challenge.

We have made this one easy to differentiate!

There are nine forms to choose the one that is just right for your students.

You will find forms that meet kindergarten through third grade standards.

Some options for using these daily number of the day worksheets 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.

We have also created number cards you can place at a basket. Instead of assigning one number for the whole class, you can have students choose a number from the basket.

This is a large file with many pages. You will find all numbers from 0 through 1,009. There is also a blank page if you would like to write your own numbers. Be sure to only print the pages you need.

We like to print these cards on colorful cards tock and laminate for durability.

Do you happened to have the common core checklist for 7th and 8th grade math? Upcoming school year is my first year teaching, and I'm scared as to how I'm going to implement it.... Much appreciated if you have or know where I would be able to get the checklist... Thanks, Kim

Love it! We do these in 3rd grade. If you make one for 3rd grade or above, may I suggest keeping the hundreds, tens, ones boxes and adding "another way to show the number with hundreds, tens, and ones". This is huge on 3rd grade ISTEP and the kids always get confused by it. We start it 2nd semester so they are more prepared. Also, making one with thousands. :)
