An everyday routine of number exploration in the classroom can be a very positive activity to incorporate. Taking time to compare and contrast different numbers and their place in this world can give students a lot more confidence as they go about their daily math lessons and can help answer questions students may not realize they have.
These Daily math practice worksheets are so open-ended that you can selectively choose the daily number in order to give students effective and personalized instruction. Simply write in the number you want studied for the day, and print off a classroom set or sets for particular groups. You can also write the number, decimal, or fraction of the day on the front white board and allow kids to quickly get started as soon as they enter the classroom.
Each worksheet is free for your classroom use and to share with others. Each helps students compare and contrast numbers and utilize number operations such as addition or subtraction, multiplication or division and forces kids to understand and use math vocabulary words such as more than, less than, factors, expanded, etc. These worksheets also help students represent the numbers, decimals and fractions in literary form and by the use of models and pictures.
DECIMAL-OF-THE-DAY: These worksheets are ideal for practicing addition, multiplication, subtraction and division with decimals! Students will become more comfortable with the daily decimal interaction they will be getting. I have a lot of readers who wonder how to represent a decimal using base ten blocks. LearnZillion has an excellent tutorial called, "Representing Decimal Values to the Thousandths using Base Ten Blocks" that you might find helpful. For the Love of teaching Math has a spectacular lesson, "Introduction of Decimals" that your students are sure to enjoy. Both will help your students fill in the box called "Base Ten Blocks. Draw Below". (see below)
