I Know My Number Line

















Do you know your number line?


So today, my daughter (she'll be a 2nd grader in my class next year :) and I have been playing the number line game... all day. She has actually figured out that if you count it out before moving the game piece, when you land on free choice, you have 2 options to win a chip! That is so exciting!!! I added the talk cards (Debbie Diller's idea) and it has really made a difference in the conversation during the game. In the beginning, we really relied on it, however, the more we played the easier it became to explain our steps. Wahoo!!!


I'm so excited... I want to send it to 5 of you to try out...as a freebie. Be the first 5 to leave a comment with your email address and I'll get it off ASAP.


We copied it on the color printer and in black in white on colored paper... both look cute!

This looks great! I especially like the talk cards. I definitely want to encourage more conversation during math, too. You have a terrific blog, by the way. I can always find something useful!

I realise that I am not one of the first 5 people but I have just discovered your blog and think it is amazing!! I am a teacher in New Zealand and currently teaching year 1/2 which I think is the equivalent to your Kinder?? Not sure but I think that these activities would be fantastic to have in my class. If it is not possible I will still follow your blog as I love it :)

Thanks
