As primary school teachers, we are constantly on the lookout for resources that can engage our students while reinforcing key mathematical concepts. Today, I'm thrilled to introduce you to a fantastic free resource that will add a dynamic dimension to your daily maths lessons: "Number of the Day."

Designed to cater to students from kindergarten to year 4, "Number of the Day" is a versatile tool that can inject excitement and interactivity into your classroom routine. With just a click of a button, you can access

this invaluable resource and embark on a journey of numerical exploration with your students.


So, what exactly does "Number of the Day" entail? Let's delve into its features and benefits:

  1. Daily Number Investigation: Each day, you have the freedom to select a number for investigation. Whether it's the date, a significant number from a lesson, or simply a number of your choice, "Number of the Day" allows you to tailor the experience to suit your curriculum and students' needs.

  2. Comprehensive Worksheet: The accompanying worksheet is a treasure trove of mathematical activities. From writing the number in words to representing it with tally marks, from exploring its extended form to identifying the number before and after, each section of the worksheet encourages students to interact with the number in various ways, fostering a deeper understanding of its properties.

  3. Visual Learning with MAB Blocks: Concrete manipulatives are a cornerstone of effective maths instruction. With "Number of the Day," students have the opportunity to visually represent the chosen number using MAB (Model-Abstract-Base Ten) blocks. This hands-on approach not only reinforces numerical concepts but also appeals to different learning styles.

  4. Odd or Even?: Understanding the parity of numbers is crucial in early mathematics. With a dedicated section to identify whether the number is odd or even, students can sharpen their skills in distinguishing between these fundamental number types.

  5. Decomposition into Tens and Ones: Breaking down numbers into their constituent parts lays the groundwork for more advanced mathematical operations. By determining how many tens and ones comprise the chosen number, students develop a solid grasp of place value, paving the way for future learning.


Number of the Day isn't just another resource; it's a catalyst for mathematical exploration and discovery. By incorporating it into your daily routine, you can ignite your students' curiosity, deepen their mathematical understanding, and foster a love for learning that extends far beyond the classroom walls.
