# Ordering Numbers to 120

I just added more snake puzzle cards to the printable pack over in our store for you! Your students can now order numbers to 120!

A game mat is provided to work on, or you may choose to provide the number cards for students to sequence directly.

It's a practical game to include in your plans as the rectangle cards are fast to cut and prepare and it's easily differentiated.

There are a lot of cards included (119 puzzles) so I recommend selecting just a few for each group at your math table.

You can let students free-play with the cards, building the snakes independently or set up a game in your math workshop or rotation (instructions included).

For your emergent learners, I recommend printing 2 sets and using one snake as a matching-mat. These students can work towards being able to identify each number by matching it with a puzzle piece.

Added to the resource is also a digital activity - you can use Easel by TPT to project it onto your electronic board. Use it as a daily math warm-up for the week! Here is a suggestion of a math-talk you can lead with each slide.

#### Number Snake Math Warm Up

Monday - Slide 1
• What numbers are missing? How do you know?
• Encourage students to tell you and explain how they know - e.g. 3 is missing, it comes after 2. 5 is missing, you say it after 4.

Tuesday - Slide 2
• What number is one more than 7?
• How else can we describe where that number is on the number track? (e.g. one less than 9)

Wednesday - Slide 3
• What number is two away from 10? How do you know this?
Thursday - Slide 4
• What numbers come between 15 and 19?
• How far is 16 from 19?
• Is 17 closer to 15 or 20?
Friday - Slide 6
• What numbers are missing?
• Are they odd or even numbers? How do we know?
