Sharing is caring!

I’m linking up at present with Teaching Momster for Math Madness Wednesday.

The theme this week is fall math concepts.

Sponge Painting

Here are some enjoyable actions to do with sponges and paint:

To make the sponge shapes I simply purchased low-cost sponges and lower them with an enormous pair of scissors.  An enormous piece of building paper would actually be higher than the small printer paper I’m utilizing right here.  Choose a quantity to signify that will be most applicable on your college students.  When we select a quantity I’ve to remind the kids MANY instances, “How many shapes are we putting in each box?” “5!”  Memorizing quantity combos helps kids develop automaticity with each addition and subtraction information.  It additionally reinforces the idea that numbers will be composed an decomposed in several methods.

Arrays obtain elevated consideration on the 2nd grade stage within the Common Core requirements.  They are additionally a great way for Third graders to develop their understanding of multiplication.  Using a distinct colour for every row within the array helps emphasize that there are a number of equal teams being counted.

Mummies

Halloween math activities, counting mummies

Practicing counting and skip counting can get sooo monotonous!  Here’s a foolish thought to add to your bag of tips.  Originally I considered wrapping up a scholar in bathroom paper….in case you’re actually courageous possibly you can provide strive.  Instead I settled on a stuffed animal.  Depending on the age of your college students you might rely by 1 or skip rely.  You might write the numbers on the bathroom paper forward of time or have the scholars show you how to write them.

You might wrap up a distinct animal every day, specializing in a distinct type of counting (beginning at 100, counting by 10s, beginning at 500, counting by 2, and so on.)  By Halloween you might have a group of mummies that you’ve got labored on as a category.

For extra fall math (and language arts) enjoyable, try my Halloween packets for 1st and 2nd grade.  They embrace Common Core aligned studying, writing, and math actions.  They are enjoyable for entire group classes, unbiased work, facilities, or homework.  With 15 pages, numerous primary expertise are coated!

Wishing you power to get pleasure from (or at the very least survive ; ) the high-energy Halloween season!
