Are your kiddos bananas over Pete the Cat? Then I think they'll like this puzzle game which comes in black and white so students can make their own, as well as one in color to use as an independent math center.
Sliders are a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess a variety of standards. I've included 5 different Thanksgiving-themed slider patterns, with slider strips for: upper and lowercase letters, numbers to 30, skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, & 10's, as well as counting backwards from 10-0 and 20-0, along with a shape slider too.
This quick, easy and fun game is perfect for the last day of school before Thanksgiving break. It reinforces counting and using critical thinking skills. The game is simple, but there's strategy involved if you want to be the winner. This game will be FREE for an entire year! Woo hoo. After which time, it will be revamped and put in my jumbo, 177-page "Funtastic" Fall November Math & Craftivities Packet.
This packet has a lot of quick, easy and fun math activities, covering a variety of Common Core standards. They are versatile, so you can differentiate, making the lesson easier or more difficult to fit your needs and grade level. There are worksheets as well as dice, spinner and paper-pencil games for the following:
You can review all sorts of standards with this cute turkey game that's easy to differentiate for a variety of learning levels. Use the 10-sectioned pie pattern, to simply make a 10 piece puzzle, for younger students to practice counting and sequencing numbers 1-10. Older students can practice numbers and their number words, if you cut the puzzle slices into numbers and number word pieces, making a 20-piece puzzle.
This little booklet packs in quite a few standards. Students trace and write the numbers and number words; they read the simple sentences and add end punctuation, then color the pictures in the group/set. Review adding one more to complete the next grouping as students count from 1 to 10.
Venn diagrams are a quick, easy and interesting way to introduce and practice comparison and contrast writing. I designed Venn Friends, as an especially fun way to do that. These are also a great way for you and your students to get to know each other better.
This adorable 3D turkey is an interesting and fun way to have students write about what they are thankful for. Children write 6 of those things on a colored strip of paper, then staple it into a feather "loop" that they glue to the back of their turkey.
After reading several stories about the first Thanksgiving, have a discussion with your students about the kinds of meals that they enjoy for their Thanksgiving feast. How are they similar? How are they different? Do most of them have a traditional or non traditional Thanksgiving?
Help reinforce a variety of standards with this quick, easy and fun emergent reader. I call these strip booklets, because I can fit five pages or strips on a one-page master for easy printing. These make great Daily 5 activities.
