In math, we have been working on time to the half hour. I was out of my room a lot this week due to DRA testing so I did not get many pictures….but I did happen to get a picture of one of my favorite things we did this week! Bunny clocks!
I let each student choose their own time that they wanted to put on their bunny.
They thought it was hilarious that these bunnies were popping out of Easter eggs. You can download the templates to make these here.
I also wanted to share a quick little station tip with you all before I go. One of my favorite ways to introduce a new matching station activity is by playing Find Your Match. For example, for the station activity below, students had to match the analog clock to the digital time. I gave each student a card and told them to find their match. Once they had their match, they had to put the cards on the pocket chart…we discussed the cards and why they did or did not match.
Now this activity will go in our math station buckets for next week. You can find this station activity plus several other activities in my Once Upon a Time unit.
While I’m sitting at OT for little P, I thought I’d share a fine motor activity with y’all! 😬 I’ll be doing preschool with him at home next year (his daycare got torn up by a storm🌪) and fine motor + alphabet are two things we’ll be hitting all year. So, I wanted to incorporate as much of both into one activity as I could. 💪 These lacing cards are going to work his little fingers all while learning the alphabet and letter sounds. 🍎 These (+ several other fine motor mats) are available in my store! // Link below 💜💜 www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Alphabet-Activities-Lacing-Letter-Mats-Fine-Motor-Lacing-Card......

A few years ago I used this Friend-Diagram activity with my students to teach compare and contrast! I always love how they turn out! It’s FREE on the blog and I re-shared it in my Weekly Recap (several weeks ago) on the blog, too! Hope you can use it! Link here 👉 // smittenwithfirstblog.com/weekly-recap-3/... See MoreSee Less
Sticky Tables was a class favorite years ago! It gets kiddos up and moving!! 🤩 It works with multiple subject areas/standards and can also be used for informal assessments! 👍 My last post showed how to use it with skip counting and here I show it used with subitizing/number sense, ABC order, and handwriting practice. See previous post for directions on how to play 💜💜 ... See MoreSee Less
Re-sharing this skip counting number lines activity from years ago! 👉 Skip counting from any given number is such an important skill for our little ones - not just reciting 2,4,6,8,etc! Here's how we did it! Put sticky notes on the table, each student chooses one sticky note to start off with and then they just fill in the boxes using an expo marker on their desk! You could even use washi tape to create the number lines! ... See MoreSee Less
