Math Linky - 6th Oct

  Join us for our Sunday night Math linky

Our game this week is "Guess my number?"

I do this on our IWB (Interactive Whiteboard) using the Notebook Program. I have inserted a 100 frame in a document to access quickly.

Decide a range of numbers - for this task we chose to go between 1 and 20.

We make all the numbers red before we start to show the range available.
A child has a number in mind and we ask questions to narrow it down.
This is great for place value/before and after.

If the first question is - is it smaller than six? - answer no.
We change the colour of the numbers that it is not.
Next - is it bigger than 17? - no, then change the colour of the numbers.

For students who need to see the visual this is great.
Keep asking questions until the number is named.
