Cards and Counters

The purpose of cards and counters printable activity is to verify that each number is a quantity on its own, that numbers can be sequenced, and that there are odd and even numbers within the alignment of numbers 1-10 and beyond. In addition, children will begin an informal lesson on division. “or” To arrange the numerals in their correct order while putting the proper quantity with each.  A minor purpose is to arrange the counters to give a visual impression of odd and even quantities and later to teach the terms “odd” and “even.”

How to present Cards and Counters printable at home:

Unroll a mat on the floor.

Bring the material to the floor mat.

Open cards and counters box and place the lid underneath the box.

Take the cards out one by one and ask the student to say the name of the numbers.

This can be in order or out of order.

Do place them in order on the mat, though (left to right).

Leave a space between the numbers (about two fingers’ width).

Continue placing all the numbers up to 10 on the mat.

Point to the number one and ask the child how many counters he thinks should go below the number one.

Place one counter below the number one (see pictures below).

Point to the number one and ask the child to count how many counters are below the number one.

Repeat the same procedure with the number two, except that the two counters need to be side by side.

With all even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8, 10), the counters will be side by side.

With the odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), the single counter will fall at the bottom, in the middle.

Continue doing this for all number up to 10.

Once done with all the numbers, we will introduce the concept of odd and even.

In the series of activities for teaching the understanding of the quantities and the numbers 1 to 10, we guide the child to sequence numbers correctly by building the correct order of the numbers into the first two materials.

Number Rods – The quantities are fixed and the numerals are loose.  By building the rods into a stair, from smallest to largest, and placing the number cards on the end segment of each rod, the child sees the numbers in correct sequence.

Spindle Boxes – The quantities are loose and the numerals are fixed in sequence along the top of the box.

Cards and Counters – Both numerals and quantities are loose.  This is the first time we have asked the child to sequence number without providing a control for the sequencing.

Diy Cards And Counters:

Cards and Counters typically require no preparation in advance except for finding 55 objects, whether they’re stones, marble pieces, coins, acorns, or buttons and writing the numerals with chalk or drawing them in the sand or dirt.
