SMART Board activities are available for every age group, including very young children. here are several effective SMART Board activities for kindergarten math.

Ordering numbers game

Learning to distinguish larger numbers from smaller ones is one of the most important tasks kindergarten students face. With this SMART Board activity, students can practice this skill with an interactive underwater game. On the board, several numbers appear next to fish. Students play the game by selecting the numbers on the board in order from smallest to largest. If the order is correct, a fish will come and eat the numbers. If the order is incorrect, the fish releases the numbers from its mouth and students can try again. Each round consists of different numbers ranging from 1 to 100.
