Snowmen Completed, Math Stations and If You’re Planning Ahead and Freebie Correction

We finished our snowmen on yesterday and the students did a fantastic job! I think they turned out great. The students got compliments all day long on their neat handwriting and superb cutting abilities. They make the hallway look so bright and cheery.

Math Stations This Week
Here’s a little of what we accomplished this week in math stations.

These students are completing Snowmen Fact Families

These students are playing Winter Wonderland on the Promethean Board. If you purchased this game did you know you can import it as a PDF into ActiveInspire…I’m pretty sure you could do the same thing with Smartboard software. I always create a flipchart game to go along with the regular paper game when I create these. It does double duty. The students are rolling three big dice and adding the numbers together.

Students sorted subtraction sentences at this station.

Adding three numbers

Making Combinations of Ten. This is the most popular station. I’m so glad because it means they’re getting lots of practice with that all important benchmark number of ten.

Start With Get To: This has also helped my strugglers. Their ability to count from any number has improved so much.
