Teaching Counting with Sesame Street Classics

Posted on July 3, 2012. Filed under: Elementary math, Math Centers | Tags: , , , |


All these Counting Videos are You Tube.  Just download them on your thumbdrive (google youtube downloader and it will explain how) and then you can show them in your class.  You could also just go to Sesame Street because all their videos are up there.  These are tooooo funny and very educationally entertaining!  You could also set these up in a math center and let the students watch them and sing along.

Classic Sesame Street:  Roll call for numbers video!  Great for kindergarten and beginning first grade!

Another Sesame Street Classic: Number Elimination

This isn’t Sesame Street but it’s really good too! The Big Number Count Song (nice catchy tune)

Happy Mathing,

Guess My Number Activity

Posted on May 28, 2012. Filed under: Assessment, Classroom environment, Common Core, Elementary math, Math is a Language | Tags: , , , , , |


This is a great routine to put up in your class (scroll down to the middle of the page).  You get to review tons of skills.  You should laminate this so that students can actually go up and work on the chart.  I love the way that it is color coded.  Be sure to give all kinds of prompts across the domains:

Examples:

Is your number a 2 digit number?

Is your number greater than 10?

Is your number equivalent to the number of inches in a foot?

Is your number equivalent to the sides of a hexagon?

Is your number less than 100?

You get to review concepts and vocabulary!  Wonderful!
