1-2-3 Make A Graphic Organizer With Me!
I LOVE graphic organizers. They are especially helpful for my visual learners. I took this concept and made it work for a number worksheet. It's quick and easy to implement and can be part of your daily or weekly table top lessons, or plugged into your math center.
If you need "stuff" for your early finishers to work on, or some activities for your sub folder, these are perfect. Many teachers have asked for simple homework lessons, because their districts require homework!
These make that task less work for you, and more fun for your students. As you can see in the sample, a lot of Common Core math is covered in a fun way.
I've used the same template and changed the clip art, so you have a variety of worksheets for each month and LOTS of themes. This packet is a whopping 94-pages!
Pick and choose what suits your kiddo's. By repeating the format, students feel empowered and can get right down to business. Because they know what to do, they can work independently, you're not wasting time explaining directions, and are freed up to work one-on-one with strugglers. Things stay interesting and fresh, because of the seasonal clip art and the new number that they choose.
Students roll one or two dice to arrive at their number for the worksheet, or you can have children choose a number card from a seasonal container. (I've made cards for numbers from 1-120.)
You may want to make extra sets for students to sequence and play games with. I've included a blank grid children can write numbers in, or laminate some grids and have students place tiles on them.
I was bopping around the internet and found a little dice INSIDE a larger dice! How cool is that! Less noise and less likely to have one flying on the floor. I think your kiddo's will think they are especially cool too!
I Googled where you can buy them and found several places. You can get a pack of 8 for only $2.28 from Pure Fun or $2.69 from On The Fly Supply.
Students write their number in the middle square and fill in the rest of their graphic organizer.
Children can write in the coin values, or/and you can have them cut and glue the appropriate coin tiles to their worksheet. (A coin template is included for a penny, nickel, dime and quarter.) Ask students to write down one way to arrive at the coin value, or several.
For the group/set section, children can make dots, X's or whatever, to show how many. For smaller numbers, students can use stickers or a seasonal stamp. Click on the link to view/download the Monthly Math Graphic Organizer packet.
While I was didling around designing this, I thought I'd include a separate mustache-themed packet, because "mustache mania" is still going strong.
This packet's number cards have a mustache on them. Click on the link to view/download the Mustache-Math Graphic Organizer packet.
