We love using a number think board in our math classroom. There are so many ways you can adapt them, and they can easily be differentiated to meet the needs of your students. Get this number think board download for FREE to help your students with numbers, numerals and quantity.
We have combined think boards with the concept attainment strategy to create a very simple, but hugely effective addition to your teaching numbers program. Read more about using concept attainment activities here…

All you need to do is download the sorting boards and grab a stack of “number” materials. We used items like:
- playing cards
- counting cubes
- magnetic numbers
- playdough cutters
- magazine images
The list is endless and can include whatever you can find!
Next, we created a play tray to hide all the items in. We filled our Kmart tray with coloured rice, but you can use dried beans, shredded paper, pasta or sand. Again anything that adds a sensory element and that you have to hand. Add the “number” items into the play tray for the students to sort.
Finally, print and laminate the number sort think boards and place them next to the play tray and you’re ready to go!
Using the play tray really motivated the kids to find and sort the numbers. They really loved digging into the rice and pulling out items to sort and match.
