This activity is differentiated to appeal to your kinesthetic learners. There are three separate recording sheets for your use (both in color or black/white). These should give you plenty of choices when differentiating for your class.
Tier one (red framed cards) works with numbers 1-10. Your students will count the number of objects and record the number on their recording sheet, write the number and indicate the number that comes before and after or write the number of objects and represent the number by placing dots in a tens frame.
Tier two (green framed cards) offers the same recording sheets in both black and white or color but focuses on numbers 11-20 for your students who need a bit more challenge.
Teacher instructions: Print, laminate and cut the counting pieces. Place them around your room for your students to discover. You may either print and laminate the recording sheets for reuse with a dry erase marker or use the black and white recording sheets for students to use with a pencil. Students will travel around your room to discover how many of each back to school item is on each card and record their data. If you prefer not to place these around your room, you can always place the counting pieces in a festive bucket or container for students to draw out and answer.
