Match Number and Quantity 0-5

Here is a quick matching game that asks students to match a number with the correct quantity of items. This activity is in Lumio and intended to be played on a SMART interactive display but it is not required.

Numbers 0-5

Here is an activity that asks students to select the correct number for each slide. This activity focuses on the pregame introduction of a basketball team which is manned by players 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. As they players are introduced students move the correct player from the sidelines to the court. This activity is in Lumio so it has interactive elements and is designed to be player on a SMART board but does not have to be. If you don’t have a SMART board try a wireless mouse.

Gauntkit

Themed after the 1985 Arcade bombshell Gauntlet, I offer to you Gauntkit. If you have a pro Gimkit account you can play this with your students. Just plug in question sets for your content area.

Elkonin Digital Interactive

Here is a digital interactive set of Elkonin boxes. All of the elements are set to clone infinitely.

This is made in Lumio, which is not my favorite program but it is what we have for SMART boards. My best advice for this and all Lumio activities is to make a new copy of it each time you use it in case you forget to undo every move before closing it. Or you may have to delete the elements you pulled from the lists. Also you could duplicate and delete the slides in your copy as much as you would like.

Write your name activity: Bunny Rabbit Tea Party

Here is an activity that asks students to write their name on a name tag for the bunny rabbit tea party. Yes, I know you are already thinking it, yes you should build a bunny rabbit tea party in your class the day you do this activity. Probably have everyone make bunny ears to wear and physical sticker name tags too. Then you would be a super teacher. Students may use their finger or stylus to write their name on a virtual name tag. This activity is designed to be completed on a smart interactive display panel.

Simple Addition 0-5

Here is a simple addition activity which uses the numbers 0-5. Students must find math problems, and determine the answer they are looking for to find it in the memory match board. This activity is made in Lumio and would be enjoyed very well on a smart interactive display. It is also playable on most any other device.
