Well we finally did the deed this weekend. All the Christmas trappings and tree were taken down. I love putting everything up, but taking it all down and packing it up--not so much.
Notice my two little helpers in the midst of the chaos. Now onto bigger and better things.
I decided one day after my math lesson, to put students with a mix of abilities into the center activities that I had made(all Common Core based). They had a ball. They were all deeply engaged in the activities and it warmed my heart to see stronger students teaching and explaining math concepts to my weaker students. May I say "success"! And the best part was that when it was time for Fine Arts, they didn't want to stop. I had to promise them that we would definitely do this again tomorrow. Oh twist my arm!
Tens and Ones Find My Mittens Fun is so much fun when you have a friend to "play" with.
Here is Subtracting 10 Surfing Fun and all the boys are working together!
Here I took my Adding 10 Cupcake Fun game and split it into 2 centers. Since working on the white
board is so much fun for them, I added magnets on the back. Voila!
Watching this group work so hard at Tens and Ones Froggy Fun Matching Center, gave me such pleasure.
Two-Digits Plus Ones Choo Choo Fun is a sweetheart of a puzzle game. Students practice adding the ones which sometimes require composing a 10. At first it is a bit challenging, but I have also given you ways to differentiate. Check it out!
Till next time, keep trying new things, you never know what you will discover.
