Here you will find examples of engaging activities and strategies that teachers are using to target students' challenge areas revealed on formative SNAP assessments.

  • Students search for and fix the teacher's mistakes on the giant SNAP board "Oops Hunt"
  • Students work together to build a hands-on number line using precise language (midpoint, endpoints, benchmarks, highest, lowest, greater than, less than..)

  • Students practicing representing numbers many different ways, working on computational flexibility and making math to self connections

  • Students practicing drawing visual representations of subtraction

  • To help them communicate their thinking, students have access to mathematical vocabulary on a math word wall (see "Resources" tab on this website for the free printables)

  • Our class was challenged by locating numbers on number lines and finding examples of numbers in real life; this activity connects both learning areas.
  • Students add real-life examples of numbers on a very long 0 -1 000 000 number line at the back of the classroom (populations of familiar cities and countries and number of kms on family cars)
  • Students will continue to add meaningful numbers to the line throughout the year

  • Students are working on finding difference and how it relates to the adding up strategy when subtracting. We are one step closer to diversifying our calculate section on SNAP.

  • Students using the SNAP as one station in guided math rotation

  • Students practice subitizing and decomposing numbers with dot card images from the "Tiny Polka Dots" game.  Number Talks help students work with numbers in a more flexible way and will develop their future computation/mental math skills.

  • We practice hands-on number line routines to help students estimate and situate where numbers would fall on the line. Students love the responsibility of being the "end points".  :)
