Now for the fun part. Every day I have a number of the day. The students take that number and do a variety of skills with it. They keep a copy of the instructions in a sheet protector inside their Math Journal. I give them copies of the answer sheets so they can turn it in as an assignment. Here is a sample.
Aaaaand, here is how the students would fill it out.
In the beginning I have the students mark that number on the 120 counting chart by circling it with a dry erase marker. Then we go through each step together as a class. By the end of the first week, many of the students are doing this on their own. By using the counting chart the students are able to see a pattern with the numbers. The repetition also helps them understand the numbers quickly. Be on the lookout for next week. I will be adding a reference for number words as well as even and odd!
