What's the missing number?
Skip Counting - Popsicle Stick Multiples
Students will get a group of popsicle sticks with numbers to 100 in 10's (10, 20, 30, 40, etc.). They will order the numbers and record how they counted by.
This could be used in small groups where children have partners and once they have finished check each others work and then count by 10's to each other. They could then take turns removing a stick (while partner closes their eyes) and then the other child will have to guess which multiple is missing.
Students use a themed number chart (such as space) to help them count by 1's and identify the missing numbers in the chart.
In small groups students can be checked by asking them throughout the activity - what number is the moon? What number is the earth? This can be adapted for numbers from 50-100.
Students can use a 100 number chart as they practice counting with a partner
One partner can point as the other one counts. They can roll a dice on the mat and wherever the dice lands that's where they have to begin counting from. Other ideas are drawing a number from a pile and starting at that number.
5 students with limited knowledge
Using the dotter to dot a number every time you count. Allows them to see which number they are saying and go slow. They could use different colors for each line of 10's.
