Number Sense

One of my new "favorites" in my classroom is my Smartboard. It is so useful for so many reasons and one of the things I love most about it is that I can quickly create kindergarten friendly games/centers that are easy to use and can be differentiated. In this game the kids move things above the line that remind them of the number 3 and then they have to explain why. Explaining yourself is the key! (Common Core Standards!) One of my little guys recently moved the word "one" above the line in the activity and explained to my class that it reminds him of the number three because there are 3 letters in the word. My class thought he was a genius! The power of the peer teacher! For those of you that have a Smarboard you can download this file from my TPT site. If you don't have one worries...I have a paper cut/paste version you can download!
