Oh holidays, how I love you so! I love sleeping in, playing with Bella all day, going shopping, baking with my new KITCHENAID STAND MIXER (love it!), and just plain relaxing! I still have another 5 days of vacation, but I feel like they are going too fast!! I have been trying to be good and not do much school work over the holidays. The only thing I have been working on is my January math centers. They are finished and all ready to go! I just uploaded my Winter Math Centers to TpT for $6.00. Check them out by clicking the picture below!
Station #1: Hot Chocolate Puzzles
Students match up the numbers to the correct number words (from 1-20). There are two recording sheet options: write the numbers or write the number words.
Station #2: Mitten Counting by 5's
This is a great pocket chart station. Students organize the cards in order from 5-100. There are three different colored sets of cards. There are two recording sheet options: blank and partially filled in.
Station #3: Spin and Graph a Snowman
Students spin the spinner and record the results on a bar graph. Students answer which item was spun the most/least and then can decorate their own snowman on the back!
Station #4: Snowball Measurement
Students measure winter characters using "snowballs". You can use white pompoms, beads, buttons, marshmallows, etc.
Station #5: How Many Fish?
Students pull a domino to see how many fish (dots) the penguin will catch! They write an addition sentence to go with it.
Station #6: Mitten Patterns
Students choose a pattern card and color in the mittens to show that repeating pattern.
Station #7: One Less/One More
Students choose a number card (from 5-40). They write the number in the middle. Then they write the number that is one less and the number that is one more.
Station #8: Penguin Doubles
Students match up the addition double cards with the correct sums. There is a recording sheet to go with it.
Station #9: Snowball Ordering
Students choose three snowball cards (numbers from 0-29) and place them in order from least to greatest. They write the three numbers on their recording sheet and choose three new snowballs!
