Grouping Cards

Two years ago I was trained in Moving Through Math by Marcia Daft. During one of the classes it was mentioned to make grouping cards to use in order to group students by 2’s, 3’s and 4’s. Above is what I came up with. I used 24 index cards as the plain white background and regular construction paper for the solid color background. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and bought scrapbook paper. I just needed one sheet of each design I wanted to use.

In order to group students by 4 you use the number on the card, i.e. there are 4 number 1’s, 4-2’s, etc… If you want to group students by 3’s you use the colored background color. There are 3 green, 3 black, 3 pink, etc… If you want to group your students by 2’s it is based on the scrapbook paper. There are only 2 school buses, 2 apple numbers, 2 music note numbers, etc…

I created 24 of these not only because we had 24 students but also because 24 is divisible by 3 and 4 so that way we could have multiple number groupings.
