I want to share them with you because they are cheap, easy, enjoyable..
and they work to teach children their numbers 0-100.
Number Recognition Game- SMASH
This game was my creation and may sound complicated at first,
but it is easy once you actually play.
I bought a pack of Trend 1-100 flashcards cards
at a school supply store since they are thick and durable.
They have lasted several years.
You can buy or make your own.I wrote on my cards using the 25’s as special cards.
I show them each number card each day.
We also talk about skip counting by 5’s.
This is the key.
Once we get to the number 10, we start to play.
Number Recognition Game- Guess My Number
I buy two matching 100’s charts and laminate them whole.
(The one of the right was used LOTS last year,
so I decided to buy a new matching one (on the left) and cut up my old one.)
I like this chart because it is good for 6 and 9 confusion and shows odd and even numbers so well.
(I also kept my old numbers from last year, so now I will have double.
My number 100 was worn out because the kids LOVED it so much.
Plus, this keeps it more fun.)
Each student gets to ask ONE yes or no question to find my number.
I use a dry erase marker to cross out the numbers it is not on the whole 100 chart posted for all the kids to see.
(This age group needs a visual, but older kids could keep up with it on their own chart.)For example, if a student asks me,
“Does your number have a 3 in it.”
If it doesn’t, I answer with a yes or no, then I cross out the numbers that begin with a 3 and the numbers that end with a three.
I also add a tally mark to the top to count the guess made.
I mark a tally for double questions.
The student who figures out the number wins, and I show them my number I pulled.
If everyone guesses and no one gets it, I win.I usually allow the winner to erase the board.
YES- they love that job! Isn’t it funny!?!
If I win, I choose the student who asked the best question to erase.
