Encourage students to trace the numbers, as they color however many feathers that match the number on the turkey's tummy.
It's so important to continue practicing 1-to-1 correspondence with little ones, so that this remains interesting and fun for them, switch things up with a seasonal theme. Laminate the cards and put them in your math center, with an assortment of manipulatives.
This craftivity is a super-fun way for your kiddos to practice 2D shapes. For that finishing touch, I ran yellow paper through my scredder to make the "hay". "Socrates" will be FREE for an entire year (!) after which time he will be updated and become part of my whopping 63-page Scarecrow Shapes packet in my TpT shop. Click on the link to zip on over. For your convenience, I've included a PREVIEW here.
Spin a Web is a fun way for your students to practice math skills. Children choose a partner and take turns rolling a dice. Whatever number they roll, they color in that many sections of their spider web.
This packet will help reinforce numbers 1 through 6, subsidizing, recognition, simple addition/subtraction, greater and less than + sequencing in fun ways.
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!
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.

This packet is perfect for a daily or weekly table top lesson, math center, something for early finishers to do, nice for a sub folder activity, or great practice for a take home worksheet.

1-2 3 Come Do Some Skelton Activities With Me!
Since it's October, it seemed fitting to plug in a few skeletons, so I was diddling around with the idea of making a math packet around the play on words "Numb Skulls."
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.
I think your students will enjoy rolling 2 dice to make additon or subtraction equations on their "Numb Skull" and then solving them. They write in their answer and color that many teeth.
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!
Lots of the items are very versatile. The number cards with number words, can be cut into puzzles, or run off so students can make an Itty Bitty Counting booklet, which is a nice activity for your Daily 5 word work.
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.
The packet includes: A Numb Skull slider, where students trace the numbers from 0-30, or insert a skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, or 10's number strip.
There's also a slider for counting backwards from 10 to 0 and 20 to 0.
I've included several games as well. 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?"
Students choose a card and then give classmates clues. i.e. "My number is odd. It's greater than 20, but less than 27. When you add 11 and 10 together, you'll know my number.
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.
There are some Trace and Write the numbers from 0-120 worksheets, as well as quite a few What's Missing worksheets for numbers 0-120, plus all of the skip counted numbers.
There are several puzzles that you can use in a variety of ways, as well as Odd Todd and Even Steven skeleton sorting mats. When students have completed whatever you deem appropriate, give them a certificate of praise for a job well done.

Since I get quite a few requests for telling time activities, I decided to whip together a Numb Skull clock and a few telling time to the hour and half hour games too.
This packet includes analog as well as digital time cards that you can use as flashcards, or to play games with. Click on the link to view/down load the It's Numb Skull Time packet.
Well that's it for today; thanks for visiting. I'm off to take a drive in the country with my hubby.
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.
