Free Mother’s Day MATH Craftivity? YES.

This file contains 2 different math craftivities that can be used in 2 different ways. There is one page of the Percentage Poem template and mom coloring activity included. Students can write a percentage poem by identifying 5 things that make up their mom and assigning each a percent. Then students can color the MOM sign and add their picture to the heart if you’d like. There is one page of the Mom Fraction template, where students can identify 4 things that make up quarters of their mom. Then students can color the MOM sign and add their picture to the heart if you’d like. There are also pages that contain each of the templates only, and a page with craft outlines to make the Mom sign using colored paper. You can also add a picture in the heart as in the picture of the cover page.

Based on the standards, the Mom Fraction math craftivity would be more appropriate for younger students while the Percentage Poem math craftivity would be more appropriate for older students.

End of the Year Activity *Freebie* Updated for 2015!

It’s almost May!  I updated this activity to be used for the end of the 2013-2014 school year. I changed the font on the front cover and I also added a blackline picture of a school that you can use and have students color if you’d like.  Click on the picture for the link to the *free* item in my Teachers pay Teachers store!

I made this little activity for students to reflect on what they learned this school year. I wanted to create an end of the year activity that had a little substance and required students to reflect on the highlights of what they learned throughout the year! Also, I wanted to it be fun. The first page of the document shows an example of the activity. On the second page, students fill in what grade they are in and write their name on the line. Then they can cut out both boxes and glue them on a file folder. On the next five pages, students can fill in something they learned in Reading, Math, Writing and about Making Friends and Attitude! There is space where students can draw a picture as well. Then have students put the sheets in their “file” and you can staple them if you’d like. (Target has really cute file folders in the One Spot!)

Enjoy!  If you like this, please rate me, or follow me!
Thank you!!!

Spring Tree Counting Math Center Activity {Freebie!}

I made this template for students working on counting with one to one correspondence for numbers 1-20. This file includes tree templates for numbers 1-20, a blank tree template just in case, and flowers to use as counting manipulatives. You can use these in several different ways. First, I would print them on card stock, laminate and/or put them in a page protector. Then you could set them all out, (or just the numbers you are focusing on!) and have students put the corresponding number of flowers on the tree, or you could give students one tree at a time, maybe during a small group intervention. It would also make a nice math center activity. It can be used as a practice activity or as an assessment tool. I have students use these plastic flower rings (like the kind that come in cupcakes) on the trees, but I added the flowers so you have some on paper to use. You could also use any kind of little fake floral. In the fall, you could use little apples! I like this activity because it is hands-on and engaging and a cute activity for spring! I hope you like it!  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my store.  It is currently FREE, as my spring gift to you.  Enjoy!

Once Upon a Time… Fairy Tale Themed Time Telling Packets

I recently created two time telling units; one targeting telling time to the nearest half hour and hour, and one telling time to the nearerst 5 minute interval using AM and PM.

This “Once Upon A Time” packet has a fairy tale theme with castles, magic wands and frogs. It is aligned with the second grade common core standard for telling time to the nearest 5 minute using AM and PM.  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my TpT store!

Contents:
This packet contains AM and PM Posters to help students distinguish between the two. The posters have visuals and a category cloud of terms on each. There are 2 templates to use when teaching students how to read the hands. (count by 1’s to read the hour hand, count by 5’s to read the minute hand) There are 4 pages of analog clock flashcards and 2 pages of digital time flashcards that can be used for practice, assessment, matching or memory games. There are 10 pages of worksheets where students write the time to match to analog clock shown. There are 10 pages of worksheets where students draw the hands on the clock to match the digital time given. There is analog clock template with hands that you can use to play telling time “Around the World” with your students. You can also give each student a copy of the template to construct their own clock. Brad fasteners will be needed to attach the hands. There are 10 pages of worksheets with an activity and time given, where students write the digital time including AM and PM. There are 10 pages of worksheets where a time including AM and PM is given, and students are to draw the hands on the clock to match the time and identify an activity they might be doing at that time. There are also 5 “Tick Tock Toe” boards with various times to the nearest 5 minute interval. There is a blank “Tick Tock Toe” board that you or students can draw the hands on the clock to show different times. There is also a page of ideas of how to play and use the “Tick Tock Toe” materials with your students. Finally, there is a AM and PM sorting activity where students cut and glue the words under the correct heading.

 The packet contains 4 pages of analog clock flashcards for 24 different times on the hour and half hour. There are 2 pages of digital time flashcards to match the clocks. You can use the flashcards to play memory or matching games, for practice drills or for individual assessment. There are 10 pages of telling time worksheets where students write the time to match the analog clock. There are 10 worksheets where students draw the hands on the clock to match the digital time given. You can use the worksheets for practice or assessments. There is a full page analog clock template with hour and minute hands to attach. You’ll need a brad fastener to attach the hands on the clock. You can laminate it and use the clock to practice telling time with students or to play the telling time “Around the World” game in your classroom. You can also distribute the clock templates to each student for them to assemble and use on their own. Additionally, there is a “Once Upon A Time” Bingo template. Students cut out the 24 clocks and glue them in any order on their bingo boards. Then you can reinforce time telling by playing bingo with your students. There is a call list included for the teacher to use.

I will be using these activities for small group intervention for special education and RTI. Time telling is a pretty nice life skill to have. 😉

I hope you love these units!  If you do, please rate me and follow me.  I really appreciate it.  

Thank you so much.

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil?  I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.  He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

(Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11)
