To match numeral and quantity up to 8.
In this activity, instead of showing children a quantity, or telling children a number, silently write a number between 1 and 8 on the board. Have children show the quantity using one or two hands. This activity will give you an opportunity to observe which children need additional practice with reading numbers.
Part 1 has children show the number written using one or two hands. Part 2 moves to showing combinations in a different way.
I’m going to silently write a number between 1 and 8 on the board. Show how you can make this number using one or two hands.
While children are enjoying their building of mastery, feel free to repeat. When children are eager for more, try Part 2.
Now show ____ (point to the number silently) in a different way.
