First grade mathematicians will be working this year on number sense in order to improve their understanding of the relationship between numbers and their ability to do mental math. This guided lesson will help strengthen this important skill with targeted instruction and plenty of real-world practice problems. Once the lesson is finished, you can extend learning with the suggested number sense worksheets.
Knowing how to build numbers is an important lesson for kindergarteners just getting their feet wet with counting and numbers. These guided exercises can give kids a deeper understanding of number sense, numerical order, and values. Kindergarteners will begin to associate values with numbers and comprehend the concepts of greater than and less than, building upon skills they will need in the later grades.
In this introduction to numbers 0-20, kids practice what they've already learned about the numbers 0-10 and build new skills in counting 11-20. Not only will preschoolers practice recognizing these numerals, but they will also be given rote count to 20 exercises to reinforce skills. Approaching numbers in a scaffolded way such as this helps build math fluency and boosts confidence.
