Candy Corn Missing Part/Fact Families and No Halloween Homework

Monday, October 28, 2013 No comments
The activity below is similar to the spider math activity that we did last week.  This time we are using candy corn as our manipulatives to figure out the missing part.  YUMMY!  After students figure out the missing part, they will write the fact families that go with their model.  Click on the picture below if you would like a copy!  (Cute candy corn clip art is from My Cute Graphics)

If you aren't sending homework on Trick or Treat night, then you might want to grab my "No Halloween Homework" poem.  Click on the picture to grab a copy.
Hope everyone survives Halloween week!  I'm already exhausted and its only Monday!

Spider Ring Math Manipulatives = FUN!

We are learning about spiders this week and I quickly came up with a little math activity to do during center time and my kids are loving it! 

I grabbed some spider rings at our local Dollar Store and cut off the ring part on a few of them and my students are using them as manipulatives to find the missing part.

After finding the missing part,
they have to write their four fact families.
You can grab yourself a copy of this activity by clicking on the picture below:

The super cute spider clip art came from My Cute Graphics.
Happy Teaching Friends!

Hey Bloggy Friends!  Sorry I've neglected my blog for a bit.  Life happens.  I won't bore you with the details.  I'll just get on with this post.

We've been learning about owls and it has been FUN!  We dissected owl pellets and the students loved it!  

We did some math and literacy centers that were owl themed and I put them together in a packet that is in my TpT store.  Since I've been MIA for awhile, I have decided to give away 3 for free in hopes that I still have a few followers.  :) 
(Click on the picture to get a look at exactly what is in the packet)

Leave your email address in a comment and I will choose 3 winners on Tuesday.

In the meantime, I do have some other owl freebies for you.  Click on any of the pictures to grab yourself a copy.
