Number Sense FREEBIE!

Schools OUT for the SUMMER!!!!! Yes... That song has been in my head all week :) Does anyone else start thinking about the next school year as soon as summer starts? Although I love trips to the lake and beach, I start planning activities for next year between vacations. 

Now that I have implemented the Common Core standards for a year (and we are getting a new math series), I wanted to work on creating a unit and activities to build number sense. I feel like that is one area that many of the math series are week in, and I think building a strong foundation in number sense is so important. I am working on some activities with ten frames, hundreds charts, rekenreks, etc. I would like to hear about any activities you may use in your classroom with number sense.  I have included two freebies from my unit (which I am hoping to finish this week). ENJOY!
