As I mentioned in an earlier post, we've been working on place value. It can be a tricky skill to master, and I wanted something more fun and engaging than linking cubes. (Don't get me wrong, linking cubes are a valuable resource. But, with such frequent use, they can get kinda boring...) So, with that in mind, I created my Hoot for Place Value set. As it turned out, my creative Kinder teacher daughter made a fun place value set, too! My Kinders had fun using her Base Ten Apples on Top set to continue building understanding of place value. Check out her blog post here.
I used components of Sarah's cute kit to a create tens & ones pocket chart activity by hanging yarn with paper clips above the kids' heads. We did the lesson first as a whole group, and now it is part of a Skill Spot for students to use independently.
Drawing tens and ones on the apple worksheet included in the set.
This is actually a component of my Hoot for Place Value
set. I didn't get these pictures taken in time for the previous post.
Here the Kinders are arranging numbers 60 - 100 in order. This proved
to be a bit of a challenge. Because it is in the Common Core (K.CC.A.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence) , we have been trying to practice the skill frequently.
These Kinders worked well together.
