Make these into puzzles for independent centers that will help students count to 100 or review upper and lowercase letters. If you celebrate 100 Day in January, this would be a fun cut & glue activity. Run the tree-box grid off on blue construction paper. Students first cut and then glue the green number-tiles in the correct order. For that extra bit of pizzazz, have children dot on "snowflakes" using a Q-tip.
Review upper and lowercase letters + numbers with these cute mini penguin cards. They are just the right size for little ones to sort, pattern, count create equations and sequence with.
Practice place value with this fun craftivity. Students trace, write, cut and glue the numbers under the appropriate "doors" that flip up, to reveal the year. Students practice subtraction by subtracting the year they were born, from the New Year to get their age.
Help reinforce upper and lowercase letters + numbers from 1-20 (teens are sometimes toughies for little ones) with an "I Spy" game.
Review upper and lowercase letters, numbers to 20, + number words, in this cute packet. Includes several games and an adorable keepsake bookmark "craftivity."
Reinforce a variety of standards, with these snowman puzzles that cover upper and lowercase letters, counting forwards and backwards + skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, and 10's. Make a set to use as puzzles for an independent center, by printing, laminating and trimming the pieces. Also print and laminate the blank grid. Students use it to place the puzzle pieces on top.
You can make these into puzzles, laminate and use each year, or run off copies on green construction paper and have students cut up their own puzzle. I've provided a blank grid for you to run off on white construction paper, so students can place the puzzle pieces on it, or have children cut and glue their pieces to a sheet of white or black construction paper, turning this "craftivity" into a lovely bulletin board. Your caption can be: TREE-mendous Work By ___________________'s (teacher's name) kindergarteners (grade).
Cover a variety of standards with this cute elf slider. Slider strips for shapes, upper and lowercase letters; numbers to 30, skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's + counting backwards from 10 to 0 and 20 to 0. If you don't want to make a slider, create a "belly booklet." Have students write letters, numbers, words, their name or whatever else you are working on inside this mini-booklet that's glued to the elf's tummy.
Help students learn to count forwards, backwards and by 10's. Print; laminate; trim and have students put together, or run off copies for each child and have them cut and glue to the numbered grid. You can also make a puzzle flip booklet using all 3 puzzles stapled to the top in mixed up fashion. Children flip the strips to find the puzzle they are working on. Have children pick a partner; challenge them to see who can be the first to put their puzzle together.
