1-2-3 come Enjoy Winter Wonderland With Me!
Oh my! It's really snowing hard, and the winter wonderland swirling outside my office window is spectacular! We are supposed to get 17 inches! Woo hoo! As long as it's winter it might as well snow. There's always the added excitement of a snow day right? So bring it on!
Making templates for my daily tabletop lessons, was a real time saver for me. The repetition empowered my Y5's, as they were familiar with the format and could get right down to business, without wasting time with a lot of directions. To keep things fresh and interesting, I simply changed the clip art.
With this in mind, I designed monthly Fun With Number Worksheets. They review a variey of standards in an interesting way. I used a graphic organizer-format, that's especially beneficial for visual learners. The different clip art (snowmen, snowflakes, mittens, Martin Luther King, penguins, New Years etc.) added variety.
Print, laminate and trim the number cards 1-120. Toss them into a basket. Have a child choose one, as the number students will use to fill in their worksheet with. When kiddo's are done, they can exchange their paper with another child to correct. (Saves you time, and provides extra practice for your kiddo's.)
You can also use these for your sub folder, homework practice, something for early finishers, or assessments. Click on the link to view/download the January Number Fun Packet. If you'd like the Big Bundle number fun packet (105 pages!) that includes all of the months, click on the link.
If you're working on +1 simple addition with your little ones, I think you'll enjoy the snowy +1 Snowman booklet.
Students trace and write the numbers, circle the number in the sequence, add +1 to arrive at a new number and then cut and glue X number of snowflakes around the snowman.
I've also included a graphing extension. Click on the link to grab it. +1 Snowman Addition booklet.
Finally, help review analog and digital time (to the hour and half hour) with the Time For Snow snowman clock matching game. Print the snowman template on white construction paper; laminate and trim. Run off the hatband-time words, the digital time-rectangles and the analog clocks; laminate and trim.
Students choose a time and then match all of the pieces and parts to complete that snowman. Make an extra set and glue together for a "Time For Winter" bulletin board.
Run off the analog clock and digital time box templates, on glossy photo paper. Children trim and glue to their snowman, to make a dry erase digital and analog clock.
Teacher calls out a time and students draw hands on the clock and write in the digital time in the box, using a dry erase marker.
Children hold up their snowman when they are done. This is a quick, easy and fun way to whole-group assess. Students erase that answer and the teacher calls out another time.
Play continues 'til you have reviewed all of the times to the hour or half hour. Click on the link to view/download the Time For Snow matching game.
Thanks for visiting today. I'm off to unbury my snow shovel. Wishing you a warm and snuggly day.

1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Mitten Activities With Me
I wanted to finish up our mitten theme with several more activities + a few requests. Who knows what I'll design tomorrow; I hope you can pop by for the newest FREEBIES.
Just an FYI, if you've got a theme going and need a few more fill-in's, simply dash an e-mail off to me: email@example.com and I'll see what I can do.
You can use these as pocket cards, flashcards, for a bulletin board, or your winter word wall. Students can also make their own Itty Bitty booklet.
Make extra sets, laminate and trim and use for Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?" games. Cut them up to make puzzles for centers, assessing, or more games. Click on the link to view down load The Mitten Number Packet.
I also had a request from Dana, in Wisconsin, for some mitten time cards to match the other fall-themed ones. Click on the link to view/download the Mitten Clock Cards. They reinforce Common Core State Standard: 1.MD.3
There are cards for analog as well as digital time, a blank set you can use for assessing, and plain red or black and white mittens to program with whatever. These are great for flashcards, puzzles and games too.
Since mittens come in pairs, I thought it would be fun to review things that come in pairs with your kiddo's.
This leads to a really interesting discussion, because the word "pair" is used for a pair of pants or a pair of sunglasses, even though they are only one item.
I enjoyed researching and making up a list of "single" item pairs, as well as a list of 38 things that come in pairs like mittens. Challenge your students to make up their own lists.
The packet includes a variety of skip counting by 2's worksheets, a bookmark + a certificate of praise. Click on the link to view/download the Mitten Skp Counting Pair Packet.
Since the graphic organizer activities have been so popular, I decided to make 3 with a mitten-theme. This is a great way to build vocabulary, as well as reinforce the use of adjectives.
After students have completed their mitten graphic organizer(s), have them write several descriptive sentences incorporating words from their lists. I included some samples for you to share with your students. Click on the link to view/download the Mitten Graphic Organizers.
Finally, Kathy in chilly Colorado, asked for a set of mitten 10-frames. Click on the link to view/download them.
She also wanted to know if I had any mitten number sliders. I do.
This mitten "craftivity" is found in the Monthly Place Value Slider Packet.
That's it for today's FREEBIES. Thanks for visiting.

1-2-3 Come Tell Time With Me!
The Cat in the Hat Telling Time Game is a fun additon for your Seuss-themed activities.
Students make their analog Cat in the Hat clock and add digital time stripes to their hat by rolling dice.
They trace the stripe, place it on their hat and then manipulate the paperclip hands to show the analog time.
The first one with a completed hat, or the one with the most stripes when the timer rings, is the winner.
Teachers should make a sample for demonstration and then use it as an anchor chart for the month of March.

These Seuss bookmarks would make a nice "prize" for the winners, or use them as a sweet surprise, and leave them on your students desks.

1-2-3 Come Play A Game With Me!
Whenever I design a lesson I try to theme it to something that is going on during the month I'll be teaching it.
Since February is Dental Hygiene Month, a lot of teachers do lessons involving teeth.
I thought it would be fun to design a "Tooth Time" activity, so that you could review telling time to the hour.
It's a nice plug in for your other dental activities, as it's always time to remember to brush your teeth.
There are 2 different ways to play the game.
For one game, students spin the tooth clock. Whatever time they land on, they write down the digital time on their toothbrush log.
The first one to fill in all of the times, or has the most completed, when the timer rings, is the winner.
In the second game students practice their math skills.
Children roll first one dice, 'til they have filled in their tooth clock from 1-6. When they have accomplished that, they roll two dice and add them together, so they can fill in the remaining times.
Click on the link to view/download the Tooth Time Games.
Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to PIN anything you think others may find helpful.
Do you have a Dental Hygiene lesson you could share with us? I'd enjoy hearing from you: firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment here.
