A Quick Routine for Number Recognition


Okay, my kids love this quick routine for number recognition. However, I still have kiddos who think 12 is 21 etc. This provides them with practice that a few of them still need. I hand out a card to every student and once again they read their card and put it in the pocket chart. They better stay focused or their friends get really annoyed! Why? We try to do this at top speed. If you are interested in having these cards, leave a comment about how you  practice number recognition and join the Work Stations Book Study. Buy the book and join our discussions. I still have 3 weeks of school so I will be adding tons of math activities... come on over and please-do not tell me that you are finished for the year. I tend to get quite jealous. Just kidding!  Click here to grab these cards.

This is absolutely perfect for number recognition practice...my firsties usually need the extra practice at the beginning of the school year. Thanks for sharing! I will definitely print them out and have them ready to go...for next year.

A.DOR.A.BLE! I won't say anything about when my summer started. Will it make you feel better that I'll be teaching summer school?

Thanks for all of the great ideas! I practice number recognition on the SMART Board. There is a number generator and a 100 chart. The children tap the generator and a number pops up, the child calls another child and he comes up and touches the number on the chart and it turns to red. The children really get to understand the concept of ones and tens place. We too try to do this quickly!
I will enjoy the book study can't wait.

These are great! A new twist for my little ones. I teach a special education class and we are always looking for new and creative ways to learn. I plan to join the book study, do I have to do anything special to sign up?
