1-2-3 Come Do Some Apple Activities With Me

Activities for Dr. Seuss's 10 Apples Up On Top storyThe 3 main characters in Dr. Seuss’s story “Ten Apples Up On Top” are a dog, lion & tiger, so I thought it would be fun for children to practice number recognition and counting to 10 with an animal "slider".

After reading the story, have students transition to this whole-group craftivity.

Two of each animal, plus I’ve included full-color templates so you can quickly & easily make a sample to share, helping explain what you want your students to do.

They color their animal, then trim around the edges.

Two are in BW the others in color.

The apples are numbered as well as blank, so that students can write them in.

So that the "slider" is not pulled out, have children fold and glue the end. Wahla! Instant stop guard.

* Dr. Seuss activities, 10 apples up on top activities, Dr. Seuss crafts, apple crafts, apple activities, counting backwards activitiesSave the number 10 for last, then count all of the apples together one more time.

* Children lay their animal down, and point to each number as you count the apples to ten.

* Students exclaim: “Hooray! Ten apples up on top!”

* If you’re also learning how to count backwards from 10, do that next, by having children pull the apple slider back down, pausing at each number, looking at it and saying it.

Dr. Seuss activities, 10 apples up on top activities, Dr. Seuss crafts, apple crafts, apple activities, counting backwards activities* When you get to the end, have children crouch down with their critter and repeat the backwards sequence exclaiming:

“No apples up on top. 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-0. Blast off!”

* As they yell “Blast Off!” they jump in the air, and can quietly file out to their backpacks to put their animal slider away.

Have older students glue two apple strips together to count to 20 and work on those tricky teen numbers.

This is also a great activity and story to read for a substitute teacher. (Instant lesson. Just tuck in your sub tub).

 1-2-3 Come Do A Few Ghostly Activities With Me

I had a request from Alma, over in California, for a few non-scary math activities, with a skeleton or ghost theme.  She teaches a Hispanic group of kinders in Oakland and their Day of the Dead celebration (Dia de Los Muertos) is huge for them.

day of the dead activitiesI referred her to the Numbskull math activities, as well as the Candy Bones activities, but also decided to design a few ghost -themed things as well. Cute little ghosts seemed to be a lot less scary to me than a skull, although that seems to be the prominent symbol for their holiday.

So if you too, are you looking for a few activities to plug into your Halloween party day, but still want to cover some standards, then I think you'll enjoy this cute little ghost-themed packet.

Made with lots of TLC cuz I love you."  

Instead of the R.I.P. signifying rest in peace, I printed Really Important Person on the tombstone.  Children sign their name at the top.  Older students can complete the writing prompt: Things that scare me... on the back.

  • halloween activities, ghost crafts, ghost activities, words that rhyme with ghost, halloween crafts, halloween math activities, math games, ghost games, halloween games, number word activities, numbskull activities, candy bones math, candy bones graph, candy bones activities, free number cardsThe packet also includes some Spooky sliders.  Even though this packet is mostly about numbers, I've also included extra sliders to cover other things.  Sliders for: upper & lowercase letters, shapes, numbers 0-30, counting backwards from 10 to 0 & 20 to 0, plus skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, and 10's.

Children can also trace their shoe to make their ghost slider and then cut 2 slits in the center, so they can insert their "slider" strip, or simply run off my ghost template, (bottom right in the photo), choosing whatever slider you want to practice.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Pirate Activities With Me

I was excited to see that the Polly Wants A Letter Cracker packet was a very popular download this week. 

I had several teachers that liked Pirate Polly so much, that Karyn from Florida, and Elaina from California, asked if I could make some crackers with numbers on them, so I designed crackers with numbers from 0-130.

pirate activities, shape activities, alphabet activities, number games, shape games, shape crafts, number crafts, pirate crafts, skip counting activities, counting backwards activities, shape games, hexagon activities, pattern block activities, common core pirates, pirate crafts, pirate games, "Feeding" Polly is a fun and less tedious way to practice counting that high.  The mini cracker cards, are also the perfect size for for sequencing. 

Make extra sets and have students lie on their tummies and string 20-30 crackers in the appropriate order.

Use them to play a game of  "I Have; Who Has?"  Toss whatever cracker numbers your kiddos need practice on, into a container and have students choose several. 

I've included "Kaboom!" bomb crackers, to make things even more fun + a tip list of what else you can do with these number cards.  

pirate activities, shape activities, alphabet activities, number games, shape games, shape crafts, number crafts, pirate crafts, skip counting activities, counting backwards activities, shape games, hexagon activities, pattern block activities, common core pirates, pirate crafts, pirate games, Have students sort the number crackers on the odd and even sorting mat, or make equations with the math symbol crackers, and then solve the addition and subtraction problems, or show greater and less than

Brook sent me an e-mail that's she's always looking for more 3D shape activities, so along with 2D shapes, I included  3D shapes, and even threw in the pattern block shapes.

The crackers are still square, but the "cheese" on them is shaped.  Of course "Polly" loves these treats.  So that you can also play a Memory Match game, as well as reinforce vocabulary, I also made crackers with shape words on them.   I hope your little pirates will enjoy "feeding" Polly yummy shapes and word crackers.

Finally, I also made a Polly Slider for a bit of hands-on fun. 

This "craftivity" includes "sliders" for upper and lowercase letters, numbers 1-30, counting backwards from 10 to 0 as well as 20 to 0, plus skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's, and of course a shape slider featuring 2D shapes, pattern block shapes and 3D shapes.

Run off whatever "slider" you want your students to practice.  They trace the letters and numbers, or color the shapes, and then insert their strip into the slits, so that the various objects will appear in a "window" as they slide the long piece of paper up and down. 

I pre-cut the slits with an Exacto knife, as this sort of cutting was a bit too difficult for my Y5's to do on their own. Sliders are a quick and easy way to review and whole group assess

pirate activities, shape activities, alphabet activities, number games, shape games, shape crafts, number crafts, pirate crafts, skip counting activities, counting backwards activities, shape games, hexagon activities, pattern block activities, common core pirates, pirate crafts, pirate games, Call out a shape, letter, or number and have students slide 'til it appears in the window.  When they've found the correct answer, they hold up their parrot.  You can see at a glance who is having difficulty.

1-2-3 Come Do A Few More St. Patty's Day Activities With Me

I had a few special requests this week, and thought I'd combine them all in today's blog article.  I hope you enjoy them.

St. Patricks day activities, st pattys day activities, st pats day activities, st patricks day word search, st patricks day word find, st patricks day games, shamrock activities, shamrock centers, shamrock 10 frames, st patricks day puzzles, daily 5 for march, vocabulary building activities, common core st patricks day, Kyanne, from Wisconsin, wanted a simple St. Patrick's Day word search for her young five students.  Even though there are a lot of word search generators out there, they mostly have uppercase letters

Further difficulties arrise,  because they share letters, show the words going backwards, as well as diagonally and vertically, so I usually make up my own.  I like to include a shape to add interest as well.

Word searches are a great way to practice spelling and build vocabulary, so that's why I think they should be in lowercase letters.  I also like them relatively easy (showing the words in forward-horizontal fashion) so that my kiddos don't get frustrated. 

If you want to do these easy ones with older elementary students, simply give them 1-minute to find as many as they can.  Speed games, help prepare children for timed tests in a non-stressful way.   Besides using them as a game, they are a nice plug-in for your Daily 5 word work activities too.  Click on the link to view/download the 2 St. Patrick's Day word searches.

Surprisingly, I made 97 words from the letters in shamrock, and found 161 words using the letters in leprechaun.  The packet includes recording sheets, as well as my answer keys.  Click on the link to view/download the How Many Can You Find St. Patrick's Day activity.

Making the Coin Autograph Booklet is a fun way to do that.  Run off copies for all of your students, or simply make one for yourself and share your teacher’s copy with them.

I did a bit of research to see if I could find the the President’s signatures, and found them extremely interesting. Washington and Jefferson wrote with feather quills, so set up a center activity where your students can write their name with a feather-dipped in paint.  

I did this for a Constitution Day activity and have a template for that you can use.  Click on the link to view/download the quill page from Activities For Constitution Day.

To get some name writing practice in, include an extra page with the booklet and have students collect some autographs of their friends, or to expedite things, have each student sign one paper, and  run off copies for everyone, entitled Your Classmate’s Autographs.

Using a dry erase marker, call on students to circle any letters that should be capitalized and have them add end punctuation as well.   I made enough cards so that you can pass one out to each student. 

When everyone has shared their corrected card, put several on the board and have children rewrite the sentences correctly on a sheet of paper.  Click on the link to view/download the 30 grammar coin cards.

Did you ever have one of those days where you might as well have stayed in bed?  Well that was yesterday! The reason there was no blog article was that our main server (in Texas) crashed.

If you're doing the alphabet, have students think of a word that starts with that letter on the puzzle piece, and then write it on the appropriate tree-strip.

Instead of gluing the shape words inside the bows and then gluing them to the gingerbread head, glue only the bows.  Keep the shape-word circles separate.

Students place the shape word on to the matching shapely gingerbread's bow.  To make a girl gingerbread, glue the bows to the top of the head.

1-2-3 Come Do Some More Gingerbread Activities With Me

I LOVE drawing gingerbread boys and girls.  Each one has their own personality.  I try to give them that cuteness factor with special eyes and grins.  Since the "craftivities" I post are pretty popular, I decided to revamp a few favorites.

gingerbread activities, gingerbread lessons, gingerbread crafts, common core gingerbread, shape activities, alphabet activities, gingerbread arts and crafts, skip counting activities, counting backwards activities, activities for counting backwards from 10 to 0 and 20 to 0, Gingerbread Cookie Counting now has a variety of traceable number sequences.  Choose one for your kiddo's to trace and write.  I've included counting to 20, counting backwards from 10 to 0 or 20 to 0 + skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, or 10's

Children cut and collate their little booklet and staple the edge.  Glue the last page on the box on the gingerbread's belly and you're all set.  Click on the link to view/download the Gingerbread Cookie Counting packet.

Children decorate their pocket to look like a gingerbread man's face, and fill with a variety of little accordion-folded books.  I up-dated this packet so that all of the booklets are now traceable. There are strips for counting to 36, skip counting by 2's, 3's 5's, and 10's.

I've also included templates for the hexagon, pentagon and octagon shapes.  Click on the link to view/download the Gingerbread Pocket Pal.

gingerbread activities, gingerbread lessons, gingerbread puzzles. gingerbread crafts, common core gingerbread, shape activities, alphabet activities, gingerbread arts and crafts, skip counting activities, counting backwards activities, activities for counting backwards from 10 to 0 and 20 to 0, Every month I put up a new paper chain that contained a link for each day in the month.  I used it to review a variety of standards.  We'd count the links and subtract one by tearing it off; we'd identify the colors in English and Spanish and state what the pattern was. 

Children would count how many were left in English and then up to 10 in Spanish.  Students told me that the number of links was greater yesterday than they were today etc. 

As a great fine motor skill, I'd sometimes have my Y5's make their own paper chains.  They could take it home, hang it up and countdown the days to whatever special occassion was happening that month.  I designed the gingerbread paper chain with all of this in mind.  Click on the link to view/download it.

Print, laminate and trim and have students place the pieces on the numbered grid, or run off copies for everyone; they trim and then glue back together.  Click on the link to view/download the gingerbread puzzles.

I've also included a black and white set if you want to run off copies for all of your kiddo's.  They color and trim. 

They can either glue their rolled pieces to the grid, or place them on so that they can take their gingerbread puzzle home and play again. Click on the link to view/download the Gingerbread 6-Piece Puzzle packet.

If you don't do Halloween-themed things, the skulls are perfect for a pirate theme too, or perhaps you can use them as centers when your kiddo's study about bones and the human body.

Students can play independently or with a partner.   Once I started designing with the skulls, more ideas kept popping into my brain, 'til I had a whopping 46-page Numb Skull packet that covers a variety of Common Core State Standards!

You can also use them for a Memory Match game, or to play "I Have; Who Has?"  Add the "Kaboom!" bomb cards to make things more exciting.

There's also a slider for counting backwards from 10 to 0 and 20 to 0.

There's A Numb Skull addition and subtraction game, plus  a Count to 100 Numb Skull game, where students add the dice that they roll and then  X-off that many skulls 'til they have added their way to 100.

Skull number cards from 0-120 also provide options for even more games.  Since the numbers are at the top of the skull, play a game of "What number am I thinking of?"

I've also included matching math symbol cards, so students can make equations. Use the blank skull cards to program with whatever, or to make groups/sets for the equations students create.

The fall colors have peaked and a windy afternoon with a bit of rain, threatens their ability to cling onto branches for too much longer. 

Even though it's a bit chilly, a nice cup of apple cider at our farmer's market will warm things up.                                                                                      Wishing you a lovely day.

No matter what number you have to start from, here are a few tips to help you make that easy and fun!

Transitions:

I use counting backwards as a way to transition.  Whenever I need my students to go from point A to point B, I tell them, “Let’s do it before I get to zero.  Count down with me: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0!” They enjoy this, and scamper to achieve.

We countdown every time I have them line up.  I also have my students countdown while we wait for children to finish up in the bathroom.  We’ll countdown and clap, countdown in a whisper voice, countdown in a deep-monster voice, countdown and hop, countdown and balance on one foot, or countdown slowly and finish really fast.

Blast Off!

Their favorite way to countdown is when they are gathered on the carpet.  I have them pretend that they are rockets.  They crouch down and then when we get to zero, they yell, “Blast off!” jumping as high into the air as they can.  I tell them I’ll be watching for who jumps the highest.  They are highly competitive and really want to be the highest “blaster rocket”.

Since my students are also learning to identify and write numbers, as well as learning to count backwards, I combine learning all of these standards with 2 quick and easy rocket art projects.  They can be found in my 50-page Fun Activities Countdown Booklet.

Blast Off Skill Sheets:

I also have them do several tracing countdown skill sheets, and “Zap” the numbers in sequential order in I Spy the number games as well.  After we’ve traced/zapped all of the numbers, we countdown together and they “blast” out of their chairs.

To change things up a bit, they do a similar activity with bingo dot markers in an ABAB pattern.  These countdown skill sheets are also found in the  Fun Activities Countdown Booklet.

Blast Off Bookmarks:

I’ve also made horizontal countdown number line bookmarks for them.  After students have traced the numbers, countdown as a whole group and blast off.  Click on the link to view/print the Blast Off bookmarkcounting backwards from 20 to 0, counting down from 10 to 0, counting backwards ideas, counting backwards lessons, counting backwards activities, blast off ideas, blast off activities, blast off lessons, blast off booklet, blast of certificates, counting backwards booklet, counting backwards certificates, counting backwards art project, counting backwards games, s

It’s just another fun way to have students working with, and recognizing this number sequence.

You can also use these strips as an "I Spy!" game and give children a token or M&M to move down the line as they countdown. They can eat their treat to fuel their rockets, after they finish blasting off.

Is a spinner game using a brass brad and paperclip.  Children play with a partner and take their rocket to the moon counting down as they go.  This game is also in the Fun Activities Booklet.

Another fun game your students will enjoy playing is Sequence Yourself. Print off and laminate the “Blast Off” cards.

Cut them out and pass out numbers 20 to 0 or 10 to 0 depending on your standard.  Since children enjoy picking a card and holding it, I’ve included “Blast Off!” cards as well as rocket cards.

Set a timer for 5-minutes and instruct your students to get into “Blast off” order starting with 20 or 10.

Everyone else remains seated holding their blast off or rocket card.  Children are all in a crouching position.

Begin the countdown.  The student holding that card bounces up, then the next, ‘til you get to zero and then everyone still remaining crouched, jumps up as everyone yells “Blast off!”

These cards come from the 25-page Come Blast Off With Me! booklet packet.  It’s an adorable easy reader that students enjoy making. They choose a rocket, fellow astronaut friend, planet, and even a new alien friend!  It also includes 6 graphing extensions for math fun.
