Multiple Representations of Number

3 representations of numberStudents developing a sense of number need exposure to multiple representations of numbers and consistent opportunities to connect values, written symbols, and oral language.  Here are some strategies you can use to give students these opportunities:

  • “Roll, Say, Show”: Students roll die, say the name of the value, and show the value with their fingers.
  • Use this flip counter to reinforce place value understandings
    • Coral counting as you add ones, tens, or hundreds to the flip counter
    • Count a collection then show the value on the flip counter
