My students bring in a collection of 50 things. We will orally share what we have brought. We will listen intently. We will take a photograph of each student with their collection. We will share our collections via VoiceThread.
We will practice counting one to one and visualize five groups of ten as we create Fruit Loop 50 necklaces. This is a great way to visually see groups of ten with each ten being a different color. Each year I am amazed how intentional and focused my students are with counting while making their necklaces.
Dot to Dots are one way students can read and order numbers. I put out a variety of number sheets up to 50. I forgot how much fun it is to create a Dot to Dot and see the shape one creates.
We will create a class book, I wish I had 50........
We will play the Number Grid Game from Everyday Math with a modified grid to 50.
We sing, read, and illustrate Happy 50 Days to Us, to the tune of Happy Birthday.
I do hope to find a 50 piece puzzle for next year. I hope to think far enough ahead to have a parent volunteer bake cut out cookies in the number five and zero. If you know any books with 50 in the title I would love to know. Right now we look at 50 Below Zero by Robert Munsch and I'm not finding much luck with any other 50 related books.
Just found and love your blog!ReplyDelete
