What a busy week! We had a wonderful Peace Week this past week - I was so proud of all of my students for being peacemakers. I heard them say to each other "I love your drawing", and "I'll help you clean up!". I really think the message got through that we should always try to the best we can be, no put downs, tattle-tailers, or "meanies" (as we call them) in our class!
This week we also started focusing on numbers to 5. My goal is to have students become familiar with numbers to 10 by Christmas - recognizing the numbers both in order and out of order, printing the numbers, and showing me how many of that number using manipulatives.
This was a fun and quick matching game we played as a class on my whiteboard. I made these number and dot cards with a magnetic backing. The students had to come up, choose a number, tell me what it was and match the dot card to it. So much fun! They wanted to play all day. I only introduced numbers to 5 but if you click on the link below you can have all of the cards to 10.
I had one centre where students used clothpins and clipped them on to the matching number card. I bought these number cards at the Dollar Store.
I will be introducing a new centre game next week, All About Numbers, where students will spin the spinner and match the number card to their game card. You can find this game and 4 other centre games in my newest resource,
Math Center Fun on Tpt!
Also included are centre games using addition, telling time to the hour, shape recognition and coin matching.
***Okay, okay, now the exciting news....I will be giving away my Math Center Fun unit to the first 3 people
(I'm in such a good mood since it's Saturday, yah!)
