I have worked hard on these winter activities and they were a big hit in my class. I finally have an entire winter unit on TPT for you to use! Come on over and check it out!
My latest obsession is making new games for my students. I have worked hard on my winter math games and I want to share them with you. I have tried to make something for every level student I have. This first group of pictures is from the lowest level math game which is one to one correspondence up to 5. I found these supplies at Michael's and made the rest on my computer. I went to KPM Doodles for the adorable clip art!
I made many levels of math fun, including these that I used cute Dollar Store green and purple containers to hold them. I added very easy and basic classroom supplies to put these together.
My favorite new activity is to make mats for learning with play dough! This month we made the number in play dough and then added that many marshmallows to the hot chocolate. This was very popular. You can buy the Play Dough Hot Chocolate Mats by themselves or in the Winter Activity Bundle. Use the ink at the top of this blog entry.
We recently purchased these dry erase clear plastic sleeves. They are a new center for our tables. We put various papers in them. This one seen here is count, tally, and write numbers. It was great counting practice! It had many levels and all of my students could practice. We have been using this style of activity for letter and number formation practice. I have 17 students who will be going onto kindergarten and they seem to love using dry erase markers so why not!
My last math game was a snowman counting game. I made this game woo and used these great Dollar Store items. These we used on a rug on the floor and we counted up to 10 with these.
