Woo-hoo it's almost Spring break time for us! Usually our Easter break time is cut short due to snow make up days...but not this year! So in the short time I have with my class this week we are going to try to squeeze in a few new math and literacy center activities.
|I just loved this cute froggy note paper. My kids love blank books in the writing center. I simply put some sort of thematic paper on front for their topic and they write their own story to go with it.|
We will be starting a new unit in subtraction this week! I have introduced subtraction during some of our calendar activities but this is the first set of centers focused on this skill. I plan on having the kids begin with these next week and continue with them next week during their free choice times.
In our chart and big book center I have combined a literacy and math activity. We have a class made big book based on the song "Five Little Freckled Frogs." I made this with a class a few years ago and every class since then has loved reading it. I'm leaving it in the big book center with this chart. The kids use frog pointers to read the chart and dry erase markers to fill in the numbers as they act out the song with the frogs.
