Students grasping a good foundation of number sense is essential for future success in math. This cute activity helps students build that foundation while building a superhero! They won’t even know they are learning with this activity!
Numbers in Different Ways
It is important for children to see numbers represented in different ways. This activity requires students to determine the meaning of the number by showing the numbers with tally marks, buttons, on dice and in ten frames. They must match the number parts.
This is a great math center activity or small group activity for you to take a quick observational assessment of the students’ knowledge of number sense. There is a recording sheet provided for students who are completing the activity in a center so they are held accountable.
There are a couple printables to help students create their own NUMBER SUPERHERO. The pack contains 10 superheroes representing numbers 1-10. You will also find an extra activity for TEEN NUMBER SUPERHEROES for those students who have already mastered the single digits.
Cut the pieces out of card stock. Laminate the pieces to keep them protected for future use next year. Students will match the parts in order to create a number superhero. Then, students record their findings on the Recording Sheet. For a new activity with the same theme, use the “Design a Number Hero” printable.
