Exploring Numbers to 120

Exploring Numbers to 120 {FREEBIES}: I wanted to share a lot of the fun things we did during the week we were working on numbers. Ā We specifically focused on:

- CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.A.1Ā Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.

We began by creating a 120 chart as a classā¦. I gave each child a “start with” and a “get to” number and a sentence strip. Ā They had to begin on the “start with” number and write all the numbers between that number and the “get to” number on the strip.

Ā Then we mixed all the strips up and each child got one. Ā We talked about what we should start with if we were going to create a chart. Ā I told them I would say NOTHING and it was ALL up to them. Ā If they thought their strip should go next, then they could place it the floor. Ā If it was wrong, they could disagree with each other, but ONLY if they had a reason to share.

Ā The next day weĀ used accountant tape to create counting strips. Ā They could either start at 1 or let me give them a random number to start their strip.

Another activity we did is called “Missing Numbers” and we used cute erasers from Target to mark off the game board as we played. Ā It’s a freebie below! =) Ā I had to “cuten up” the ugly old math series version!

I looked online and found a few other great ideas for them, too! Ā I loved this idea I found on Mrs. T’s First Grade where she had let the students color each section… cool, right??

Another great post about Number Puzzles is over at First Grade Honey Bunch {here}. PlusĀ there are some great free downloads!

First Grade Found MeGreat activities for counting to 120! We did a little 100's number chart last week for the 100th day of school and it was clear that my kiddos need more work with a 100's chart. I just downloaded the Number puzzles and plan on using them this week! Thank you for all the ideas!
