Number Sense Games

We are rolling right along in the land of ELL's! Here's a little glimpse into our week of number sense.

1. In first grade, we worked on short a words, and played a game similar to "Stomp the Number." I just make up these titles...I also just make up games off the top of my head most of the time!  I showed the word, the kids read the word, we tossed it on the carpet, and then I had someone from the other team call a word out.  Kids had to race to pick it up.  So we had gym and literacy! You can do this game with anything- sight words, math facts, periodic table elements...

2. We are plugging along with counting and number recognition with my sweetie-pie newcomers.  I am SO excited that they now say my name when they need something.  It's a huge milestone!  They are also really into music- they sing along to everything!! Here's the "flavor of the week" number song: 

3. We learned Even and Odd this week...thank goodness for Brainpop.  I heard, "Moby, yes!" a hundred times.  We haven't learned "cool," "awesome" or "great" yet!


  1. I love BrainPop. It is one of my (and my students') favorite ways to introduce a new topic.
