We started work on our plants unit. The kids are loving it, and I have to admit it is one of my favorite units to teach.
I will post some more pictures (and freebies) of our fun later this week, but in the meantime, here is a sight word game that we are using in our literacy work stations.
I have been trying to create some free choice activities for our math stations. I wanted activities that focused on number sense and could remain in our free choice baskets for an extended period of time. Here's what I came up with to add last week.
This game is played just like traditional dominoes, but instead of the traditional dot patterns, students must find a match with various representations of the number (numerals, number words, objects, tally marks, dice ten frames, base ten blocks, addition, subtraction, and coins). My kids absolutely love them. And I love that they are practicing so many skills!
Our second addition was Bingo Bonanza.
Again, the focus is on number sense. Bingo is always a hit, and this pack includes bingo games that can be used throughout the year as students build number sense. There are 8 bingo cards and caller cards for 11 different versions of bingo.
Ten Frame Bingo
Tally Mark Bingo
Addition to 5 Bingo
Subtraction within 5 Bingo
Mixed Addition and Subtraction 0-5 Bingo
Number Word Bingo
Addition to 10 Bingo
Subtraction within 10 Bingo
Mixed Addition and Subtraction 0-10 Bingo
Bonanza Bingo (includes representations from all versions)
I have used these in small groups, and they are also out in our free choice baskets. Since students will be self selecting versions during work stations, and to avoid a potential management nightmare, I printed each version on a different color.
So far it has worked beautifully!
