 Please stay along with us through every hop! There is something special for you at the end!! 

Today I am going to talk briefly about building number sense in your classroom. As you know, number sense is essential for building those foundations for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. We practice it extensively, like you do, in our calendar time through skip counting, 10 more/less, 1 more/less, counting the days, place value with hundreds/tens/ones, everything so that they know numbers forwards and backwards. 

Do you do math centers in your classroom? We have math centers incorporated into our math block to help build and foster these concepts for our students. It is great for working those trickier concepts with a smaller group than whole group.

I wanted to share a paid product with you that I created for number sense.
