Through this activity, students will show they can use one-to-one correspondence and count up to 5 objects.
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons.
If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:
🆘 Support Struggling Students
Help students who need help understanding the concepts by placing counters on each object. Students then push away or collect each item as they count. Additionally, provide access to previous assignments, as well as posters and anchor charts for students to recall past lessons.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
For student who need more of a challenge, encourage them to create an addition or subtraction sentence that equals the number on their card.
