Counting Blocks Freebie

One of my favorite discoveries this year were the blocks in the Target dollar spot. There were so inexpensive and worked like a charm for the purpose of my classroom.

I was getting ready to tutor a student who needs extra help with number sense. He always tells me that he isn't very good at math because he gets distracted thinking about what he could build or create. With this in mind, I thought about how fun it would be to give him a way to incorporate math and building and let his creativity run wild. This is where my idea for counting block task cards came to be.



Your students will need to reset it after they complete each task, but they typically enjoy destorying their creations as much as they enjoy building them (or at least my boys do as they "hulk smash" everything).

Grab this freebie here and let me know how it works for your class!

Happy building,
Hilary
