K-2 Math:

Guess the Betweens


Today's Snack: Let's make Apple-PB Betweens! Core an apple. Slice it thinly into rings. With adult supervision, spread peanut butter on top of one slice. Sprinkle Rice Krispies on the peanut butter. Top with another apple slice. Squeeze slicely. Eat and enjoy with a glass of - what else? - apple juice.





10 blocks, 10 pennies or 10 playing cards


Here's a guessing game that helps build mental math skills and help young math students memorize the order of numbers:


  1. First, with a friend or an adult, line up 10 of the same objects in front of you, and count out loud from 1 to 10. Then count out loud backwards, from 10 down to 1.


  1. Now have the friend or an adult think of a number between 1 and 10.


  1. Now, you guess what the number is, and point to that object in the line.


  1. The friend or adult will tell you if your guess is:


    • Correct.
    • Higher than the number.
    • Lower than the number.


Guess and point again, and keep guessing, until you get it right.


Then switch places, and play again!


Keep playing until you really know those numbers in order well.


Then, using the same 10 objects or 10 new ones, point to the answer and say it out loud as your friend or adult asks you questions like:


What number is more than 5 but less than 7?


What number is one fewer than 8?

What number is 2 more than 6, and 3 fewer than 11?


What three numbers are higher than 2 but lower than 6?
