Happy November! (w/ math freebies)

We made it!  October was crazy, but I made it through. While, I love all of the bats, ghosts and pumpkins, Halloween and October just aren't my fave...

But November and December ... L.O.V.E.!!!

So we kicked off November with a bang these last two days, take a look :)

I made a few new math tub activities centered on addition using the count on strategy:

BUMP... my kids had never played this game. They thought it was pretty cool!

+1 Cover Up... can I just say that I use those dollar store mini plastic cups for everything!

Turkey True and False

You can pick up these math activities HERE, but take note: there are no recording sheets. We use this as our "Friday Free Choice" time... only they have no choice, because I tell them where to go and what activity to... Oh well... they love it anyway and it lasts a quick 30min, two stations 12 min each with 6 min to clean up :)!  I rarely have the kids using recording sheets during this time, because I walk around and check in on each group and recording skills/participation.

We also dug in on Cara Carroll's Pint Sized Presidential Unit. I am so glad I own this! It is worth every penny...

We started with If we were president and completed the craftivity

so cute!

On Tuesday we will hold our election and the kids are already buzzing about it!

Have a great week :)
