Assessing Sequencing Numbers
Assess whether your kindergartners can identify numbers in random order using two sets of numeral cards 1-10 and 11-20. Starting with a small group and the 1-10 deck give your learners the task of putting the cards into order from smallest to largest and have them read the cards in the order they laid them down out loud.

Counting and Academic Vocabulary: Using Ten-Frames
Increase equity into your curriculum with this academic vocabulary-builder. Develop number sense and meta-cognition by making explicit the purpose, nomenclature, and uses of 10-frames. Using 10-frames, learners can "determine numerosity of a set without counting," so this activity is perfect for even your youngest mathematicians.
Math Throughout the Day
Learners practice their number sense throughout the day. They practice their use and understanding of numbers in every part of the day. Students watch and listen to the teacher count students in class, sort themselves based on colors or patterns on clothing, and pick up certain number of objects during cleanup time.

Rounding to the Nearest Thousands
Third graders practice their number sense by completing math manipulative problems in class. They identify the different place values of a 4 digit number and practice rounding a number to the nearest thousand. Then complete rounding problems on the white board in front of class and on their own.
Estimation and Number Sense using Java applet
Seventh graders practice the concept of estimation and number sense using Java applet. They demonstrate skills in addition, multiplication and percentage computations. After reviewing a variety of estimation strategies, they play a java-based game using applets on computers.
Number Sense and Operations
In this number sense and operations worksheet, 7th graders solve 15 different types of problems that include estimation and expanded notation. First, they simplify various equations by following the order of operations. Then, students write numbers given in expanded notation.
Race to 20
And they're off! Working in pairs, young mathematicians roll dice to see who can fill in their double ten-frames first. When students finally fill in their arrays, they create addition number sentences that represent their rolls, helping to reinforce the underlying math concepts.
