Number Sense Matching Activity
This material is a wonderful extension for base ten number sense and can be presented after introducing numerical symbols and quantity. Matches are made by pairing the number in standard form, in expanded form, in word form, and a visual in the form of golden beads.
This material contains seven sets with 4 different numbers to find matches for in each.
If you have access to golden beads, I encourage the child to build the quantities as they go, but it is absolutely possible to complete this work without them.
After identify the matches and checking the work with the control, the children are encouraged to record the work in their journals using corresponding colored pencils.
