Games for Early Number Sense is one of three yearlong resource guides in Contexts for Learning Mathematics’ Investigating Number Sense, Addition, and Subtraction (K–3)
Games for Early Number Sense contains 24 games that you can choose from as you consider the needs of your students. The unit includes notes for each game describing the mathematical landscape—the possibilities and openings for learning that can occur as children play. Sample dialogues are interspersed throughout to help you anticipate what learners might say and do and to provide you with images of teachers and children at work. The games foster the development of early number sense and addition, including the basic facts, and are appropriate for K–1.
