What is included?
Jumbo Finger patterns from 0 to 10 and directions for a total of twelve 8 inch by 11.5 inch cards.
Why did we create it?
With finger patterns an important step in early mathematical development, we knew a jumbo size would be ideal for little hands to see, hold and begin using finger patterns. They are easily used for display in bedrooms and classrooms to reinforce early numeracy.
What does it teach?
These cards are great for displaying finger patterns for whole group. The size allows for whole group discussions and a variety of ways to display, share and discuss finger patterns.
Applicable Kindergarten Common Core State Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.C.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.C.7 Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.4 For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5
Applicable First Grade Common Core State Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.4 Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
- CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.2a 10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones — called a “ten.”
