Five by Two
Help young mathematicians read and interpret numbers from 1 to 10 and sequence them correctly with this card game. Using a deck of cards and two to three classmates, have one player hand out ten cards to each gamer and then put the extra cards in a draw pile. Without looking, players will arrange their ten cards face-down in two rows of five cards. The first player will draw a card from the draw pile, for example, a 6 of spades. Black is now indicated as their color to play for the game. They will then replace the 6th card in their arrangement with the 6 of spades and then play the replaced card if they can, and will keeping playing until they are stopped. Player 2 will do the same. The game ends when one player has all ten cards of the correct color (black or red) sequentially placed correctly in their arrangement. Note: This game needs to be modeled with teacher support several times to help learners get the hang of it.
New! Numbers and Words: 1-10
Use the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games to guide your teaching of numbers to young learners. After counting to 10 as a whole class, discuss different ways numbers are used in the Olympics. Then, break the class into 10 groups, asking each one to draw a picture showing a different number of objects between one and 10. Finally, introduce the word forms of each number, creating a set cards that can later be used to play a game of memory. A simple, yet effective, lesson for developing an early understanding of numbers.
Draw Inferences from a Text by Analyzing the Setting
Why does Ambrose Bierce set “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” in the south during the Civil War? Why does he have Peyton Farquhar set to be hanged on a railroad bridge? The narrator of this video models how to highlight descriptions of the setting and how to use a T-Chart to sort and contrast these descriptions to reveal patterns. Viewers are then shown how to draw inferences about the story based on observations. Part of a six-part series that uses Bierce’s story as an anchor text, this video can be used alone to model the process.
