1-2-3 Come Practice Math With Me
I'm really excited about the M & M (Math & Me) booklet. It's a super-fun way to practice all sorts of math and measurement skills, and is versatile enough to fit a variety of ages. (PK-4th)
I’ve organized the pages in the PDF, so that the first 11 pages are the easiest. As the booklet progresses, it gets a bit more difficult.
Simply choose the pages that are appropriate for your kiddos.
You can do several pages a day in class, or send home as homework.
PK kiddos can complete a simplified booklet, with one-on-one help from their family.
Sharing parts of the booklet, like the family page, is an interesting way for students to get to know their classmates.
Finished projects make a wonderful keepsake too.
Completing the booklet, involves using:
a ruler, measuring tape, scale, calendar, clock, addition, subtraction, counting, ordinal numbers, coins, tally marks, a 10 frame, fractions, greater & less than, geography, odd & even, comparison/contrast, data collection & analysis, writing, number sense, logic and imagination.

The featured FREEBIE today is another "Me" activity. This is entitled "Owl About Me" and is a super-easy, quick, & fun "getting to know you" activity.
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. It's rainy and the wind is making it even more chilly.
The perfect kind of day to snuggle up by the fire with a good book. Wishing you a warm and cozy, lazy kind of day.

1-2-3 Come Do A Back-To-School Icebreaker With Me.
My Y5's LOVED playing games as icebreakers for the first week of school. They are a quick, easy and fun way for students to learn about each other.
With a wave of my "magic magnifying glass" I'd often turn my kiddo's into ABC-De-tectives. They especially enjoyed running around with a clipboard interviewing their classmates. With that in mind, I designed this "Find A Friend" icebreaker.
Here's What To Do:
Teacher runs off “rap sheets.” (A list of 5 simple questions.) Older students can fill them out in class; you may want to send the questionnaire home with younger students, to have parents help them out.
Remind students NOT to put their name on their paper. Pass out a rap sheet to each student. Make sure that no one has their own.
Inform your students that they are all detectives and that their mission is to find their new friend.
Explain to your students, that by interviewing their classmates, they will eliminate suspects, until they find their new friend.
When everyone has found their friend, detectives will introduce them to the class, using their rap sheet to tell about them.
For added fun, I've included detective badges, a congratulations certificate of praise, that students earn when they find their new friend, a rap sheet, as well as an interview form.
