The Playful Learning Challenge's Pre-K and Kindergarten Math Activities Kit contains a series of 10 research-based early math activities centered around play, that can be used with simple materials in children's classrooms or homes.
This Remote Learning Plan was created by Dustin Carlson in collaboration with Rick Meyer as part of the 2020 ESU-NDE Remote Learning Plan Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Remote Learning Plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.The attached Remote Learning Plan is designed for Kindergarten Math students. Students will count to 20. This Remote Learning Plan addresses the following NDE Standard: MA 0.1.1.c Use one-to-one correspondence (pairing each object with one and only one spoken number name, and each spoken number name with one and only one object) when counting objects to show the relationship between numbers and quantities of 0 to 20.It is expected that this Remote Learning Plan will take students 25 minutes to complete.

This is a fun excercise for younger students to practice their knowledge on Digital Citizenship and internet safety. In the attatched resources I have the entire lesson plan and a video turtorial on how to play the game.
Students learn about civil engineers and work through each step of the engineering design process in two mini-activities that prepare them for a culminating challenge to design and build the tallest straw tower possible, given limited time and resources. First they examine the profiles of the tallest 20 towers in the world. Then in the first mini-activity (one-straw tall tower), student pairs each design a way to keep one straw upright with the least amount of tape and fewest additional straws. In the second mini-activity (no "fishing pole"), the pairs determine the most number of straws possible to construct a vertical straw tower before it bends at 45 degrees—resembling a fishing pole shape. Students learn that the taller a structure, the more tendency it has to topple over. In the culminating challenge (tallest straw tower), student pairs apply what they have learned and follow the steps of the engineering design process to create the tallest possible model tower within time, material and building constraints, mirroring the real-world engineering experience of designing solutions within constraints. Three worksheets are provided, for each of two levels, grades K-2 and grades 3-5. The activity scales up to school-wide, district or regional competition scale.
Kindergarten students often struggle to remember the names of teen numbers and to count objects in a group where the total number is between 10 and 20. These are practice activities to supplement a mathematics curriculum, and not intended as the sole lesson for counting 11-20. They can be used at center time activities, for an intervention, played in partners, or sent home for extra practice. There are four activities that increase in skill level required. There are pages attached to use as paper spinners and paper domino cards (if actual ones not available) as well as number cards and ten frame activity sheets.
