Hello March

Can you believe it is already March? Wow! Where has the year gone? So, I have been out searching for good activities on other blogs and found some great ones to share! 

Aloha Kindergarten blog has put this new calendar up that most of you are using in journals. Find her on my blog roll and download it for free!

Some of you already use these but I wanted to share them with everyone. Bridges Math has these as part of their program. They are to be used as calendar cards. I love the one on the right because it can be taught with Book five 3-D shapes or just used as flash cards. Cube will become part of our COS next year so this will be good practice. The bear cards are for teaching positional words which will also be part of COS. I have posted several other sets here.

How cute is this? "Go For the Gold!" is a lot like racing bears. The directions are on the game board. I really like how the students must use mental math to solve the addition sentence before they can move. The whole game can be found here.

Some of these blogger amaze me! In this activity you use one die for the rainbow board, two dice for the leprechaun board, and three dice for the old lady board. The children can cover them with whatever but I thought gold coins would be fun! This can be found here.

Lil' Country Kindergarten blog spot is terrific!! Please take the time to check out her blog under my blog roll. What a fun way to work on place value! You can find this here.

This is also from Lil' Country Kindergarten. A lot of you loved the one she did for Dr. Seuss so I wanted to show you this one too. Head over to her blog and you can find it under 100 activities on the left of her blog.

Let's talk Science!

With all the changes coming in math it seems to be all that is on the brain! Don't forget to start making those pictures of your spring tree! I found a really cute season booklet for you to use. It can be found here. I would love for you to send me a picture of your spring tree!

I snapped this picture today in Gina Reischman's room at Weeden. Great job displaying a tree through the seasons!

More to come later so check back often! Please leave comments on what you think about the blog! God bless!

  2. Just found your blog and love it and I am your newest follower. I love the tabs for math. Do you have any for reading. I got tons of downloads from your math tab. Loved the ten frames with the cat in the hat hats.


  3. Diane,
    I don't have any reading on here because I am a math and science specialist. I serve my teachers in those areas so that is where my focus is at. Sometimes I add reading that involves math too under the other resource tab. Thanks for stopping by! Glad you were able to find some useful information! Take care!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing links to my freebies and for writing such sweet things! What a blessing to me today!
