Even though some of you have been back in the classroom for a week or two (and some of you for a month) I am in the middle of my work week. I realized I haven’t shared a freebie in awhile. So, I set aside a little time to finish up a couple of word searches. Both of these are available in my Free Resource Library.
I had several volunteers offer to proof my latest file. I drew a number to decide who would help. Thank you to Tania for being my extra set of eyes. I hope you enjoy the activities with your students.
These domino activities would be a great addition to a first or second grade classroom. I am planning to start the year with these activities with my second graders to provide review and build fact fluency back up from summer loss. Because second graders can complete them independently, they will be good practice for building stamina during our math rotations, too. I plan to pair these games with my Keep on Rollin’ dice packs.
In the picture above you can see the different title slides for the activities and the various sheets included. I will print mine pages on cardstock paper and put into sheet protectors. By doing this my students can use dry erase markers and the sheets should last all year. Most of the activities include a cover page and a single sheet for the activity. However, two activities (True or False? and What’s Missing?) each contain four pages with answer keys. These could be used in your math station or as worksheets for additional practice.
Look at this great book sharing idea for Valentine's Day! It's called Blind Date with a Book. Students can wrap up a good book and write a description on the outside. Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date! How memorable! What an amazing idea for #valentinesday! Thank you for sharing Jessica! I see so many teachers trying this out! @thegreenelementaryteacher LOVE! #books #reading #library #blinddate ...
