About This Lesson

Elementary Mathematics Specialist, Karyn Hodgens, shares simple activities you can do with students to help build a strong mathematical foundation. Kids who have strong number sense understand what numbers are, how they relate to each other, and the affects that different operations have on them. These kids can easily compose and decompose numbers and are able to make reasonable estimates making computation much easier. In other words, kids with strong number sense are comfortable with numbers. Adheres to CCSS For more math lessons, visit:

Great resource to develop early numeracy skills. Would also be a resource for special populations.

Great piece of information that can be used not only with primary, but for all grade levels that have students who experience difficulties with number sense. Again, by using manipulatives, the students have a better understanding of the concept being taught.
