Few number games that might be suitable for first grade students to help them practice finding and identifying numbers:

- Number Match: Write a set of numbers on one set of cards and the corresponding number of objects on another set of cards. Have the students match the cards by placing the number card with the correct number of objects.
- Count the Room: Have the students walk around the classroom and count the number of objects they see that are a certain color, shape, or size. For example, “Count how many red things you can find” or “Find and count all of the circles in the room.”
- Number Puzzles: Cut out numbers from magazines or printouts and have the students put the numbers in order from least to greatest or greatest to least.
- Number Scavenger Hunt: Write a list of numbers and hide them around the classroom. Have the students search for the numbers and check them off their list as they find them.
- Number Line Hop: Use masking tape to create a number line on the floor. Have the students take turns rolling a dice and then hopping to the corresponding number on the number line.

## Hidden number in number table

To find a hidden number in a number table, you can look for the number in the grid of rows and columns. For example, if you are looking for the number 17 in the following number table, you would find it in the second row, seventh column:

10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27

28 29 30

If you are given a specific set of numbers to find in the number table, you can use various strategies to help you locate them more quickly. For example, you could look for patterns or skip count by twos, fives, or tens to find the numbers more efficiently.

You could also use a number line or a hundred chart to help you find the numbers in the number table. A number line is a line marked with a series of numbers in order, and a hundred chart is a grid that shows the numbers 1 through 100. These tools can help you visualize the relationship between numbers and make it easier to locate a specific number in the number table.
