I'd like to use these ideas for math centers. This teacher has been using Daily 5 Math for two years. She has some good ideas that could be adapted to most grades. Find out how she uses her color coded Math Game Binders.
More or Less with Unifix cubes. To play the game the child grabs a handful of cubes different colors.) He/she counts how many of each color cube they grabbed and writes the numerals down. The child circles whatever number is bigger.
FREEBIE: students work with numbers to gain foundations for place value. practice this with real objects like unifix cubes and doing a lot of hands on modeling before giving students these practice sheets.
