Building Number Sense with Big Numbers!


This year, I’ve really put an emphasis on math. 
Since we have an extended math block, I’ve added math centers to my day.

Can I tell you? I totally see a difference in my students’ number sense! They are adding AND subtracting LARGE numbers in their minds like it’s no-one’s business and I owe that to my use of not only centers to practice those math concepts taught, but also to fabulous resources created by some fabulous ladies!

Let’s work together, guys! 
First, students worked in small groups to sort their numbers from least to greatest. 
Sorted from least to greatest! Great job!
Once all groups had their numbers in order, we worked as a class to put all our numbers in order from least to greatest.
