Help students learn to count backwards from 10 to 0, with these 5 New Year countdown puzzles. You can laminate and use them as an independent center or run off copies for each child to take one home for more practice.
Cover a variety of standards with these January-themed winter math worksheets. Use them for your math block, morning work, sub folder, something for early finishers to work on, a math center, or for homework. The template stays the same with changing clip art to keep things fresh and interesting. Students are empowered and get right down to work, because they are familiar with the format.
Help your students understand +1 more, addition, subtraction, and other math concepts with this mitten-themed 10 frame packet.
Since mittens come in pairs, I thought it would be fun to make some mitten-themed skip counting by 2's activities.
Print, laminate and trim. Use them for flashcards, pocket cards or your winter word wall. Make extra sets so students can play games like Memory Match or I Have; Who Has? You can also cut them up to make puzzles and even more games.
Students choose either a mitten or snowman pattern; trace it onto a wordy section of the newspaper, and trim. Children guess-timate how many S's or Mm's they will find and write that information on the matching recording sheet. Students circle the letters and count them as they go and then fill in the rest of their recording sheet.
Students can draw in their own snowman face, or color my pattern. To turn these into dry erase "boards" cut squares out of glossy photo paper. Each student needs 4 to glue on top of the squares on their place value snowman.
Your students will enjoy making these snowmen with a moveable carrot nose. Choose whatever standard you want your kiddo's to work on: upper and lowercase letter identification, counting by 1's, skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's or 10's, or use on your December or January calendar to countdown the days. These are a great way to whole-group assess as well. Students could also partner up and quiz each other.
