Unifix cubes are a concrete representation of addition/number bonds. Building the bond with the Unifix cubes is what develops number sense. Great use for flash cards instead of looking for just memorization
Dry erase on plastic plates, hmm. From previous pinner: Perfect for math in focus number decomposition! Use a plastic plate and you can write with dry erase! Great to teach part part whole, fact families, etc.
This activity can be done at s first grade math station. The goal of the activity is to find the missing addends, and to complete the problem. I just thought it was a cute little activity that young students can do. Uses Easter Eggs -Amy Miskowicz
This math station is called "in and out". The students simply drop a handful of cubes onto the in and out board. They record the number in the circle for the first addend and the cubes outside of the circle as the addend. Then solve the number sentence.
