Crazy that I am doing 2 posts in one weekend! It's raining again so I get some more computer time because I am feeling the laziness! So I just found 2 great things that I wanted to share.
First off I found this great freebie from What the Teacher Wants that I can't wait to use and incorporate into my stations.
I also came across a post that goes right along with what we are doing in math....but it puts more of a game spin to it. This is from F is for First Grade. Click on the picture to see the original post.
We used the counters on Friday and were making sums of 4,5,6. I have to be honest that by the end of the lesson I couldn't get them out to recess fast enough because I was ready to pull my hair out! So I love the idea of "Shake and Spill" so much that I created these handouts to use next week as we find sums of 7, 8, 9 and yet another lesson on sums of 10, 11, 12. The first 2 pages are for sums of 6 and more. The second 2 pages are for the smaller sums. Click on the picture to grab your copy! Thanks for the idea Melissa!
Well, time to get moving! Hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing weekend!
