Sequencing Numbers!

Oy vey!

We have been hard at work trying to implement Eureka Math in the classroom in order to keep pace with general education but BOY is it a headache. It is nice having a curriculum to follow but poses numerous challenges as each lesson incorporates a plethora of skills students have to grapple with leading to moments of accomplishment – as well as – moments of frustration (both students and myself alike!)

One nice thing I will say is it really brings forth spiked skills students are struggling with which I may not have noticed otherwise and it allows me to take this information and utilize it in a meaningful way! From which, I give you:


Super Sequencing!

Each set includes Task Cards, File Folder, and Worksheets to complete in 3 different levels.

  • Numbers 1-10
  • Numbers 1-20
  • Numbers 1-100

I found my students were having trouble figuring out the missing number in a sequence in various locations. We work hard on counting on as that is a CCSS but having the conceptual knowledge of before and after numbers sometimes poses a challenge, especially when attempting to answer for speed without a 100s chart or number line to consult!

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Happy Teaching,

File Folder Friday – 4 Ways Written

In room 207, we are in the midst of comparing numbers, utilizing our knowledge built on place value. My students struggle in the abstract thinking sense of how large a number truly is, so we are working hard to support and modify assignments in order for each child to be successful. Some utilizing base 10 blocks, others looking at the highest place value first and comparing, and for some that means providing the picture representation of base 10 blocks and additional scaffolds in order to compare numbers.

Here is one activity we are using in order to help students visualize how a number actually looks, using 4 ways written they can see the standard form, written form, base 10 block construction, and expanded form. This provides students with the knowledge to access all of these strategies when comparing numbers.

I hope your students find this useful, enjoy!
