Focus on the Standards

It's Wednesday, and here at Preschool Ponderings, that means time to focus on the standards.  Every Wednesday I choose an Early Learning Standard and share a number of activities that can be aligned with that particular standard.  Remember, the Standards that I use every day, and am most comfortable with are Ohio's Early Learning Development Standards - you can review them here, however I've found that even if your State's standards differ, many of these activities can still be aligned similarly. I've rounded up some great ideas today!

Domain: Mathematics
Strand: Number Relationships and Operations
Topic: Number Relationships

While number sense focuses on what a number means (understanding quantities and one to one correspondence), number relationships are all about how numbers work together, especially when you begin to put them together. Here are some ideas for working on this skill with your students:

This game helps children see the concept - their cup gets fuller each time they roll the dice. From Frugal Fun for Boys

This idea is so popular because it is so visual.From Mothering with Creativity

Hands-on, seasonal math play from b-inspiredmama.

Simple story problems from Preschool Ponderings

This standard can be difficult to meet because it really requires children to have mastered number sense, but even children who have not mastered the necessary skills to understand number relationships can still be exposed to these ideas.  What other number relationship activities do you love? SHare them in the comments!
