What can I say? Soccer season has begun! Today, I found some time to get crafty!
I went to my favorite store...Dollar Tree and found these goodies. How much do you LOVE these erasers???? The little earths will go perfect with my Earth Day Sums of 10 freebie. Just so you know, there are 9 earths, buses, apples, and check marks, but only 3 rainbow stars - and I bought them for the rainbow stars. The plastic letters are not magnets, but I did not buy them for that. I also bought spray paint at Michaels in silver and gold.
I was feeling inspired by this pin. You can get this pot of gold free by going to PreK-Pages.
I used her recipe to make this green rice. I have tried using Kool-
Aid and oil before. It did NOT work. Rubbing Alcohol worked SO MUCH BETTER! I spray painted the letters and numbers gold and put them in the green rice.
I also spray painted some beans gold and silver. Students can take a number out of the rice bucket and add that many gold beans. Then, they can see how many more silver beans they need to make 10.
In this picture, you can see the adorable star rainbows. Students start with 10 rainbows on their ten frame. They pull a number from the bucket and remove that many rainbows. Then, they can record their answer. Just remember, there are ONLY 3 rainbow stars in each package. I know I am going to have to go back tomorrow.
For the letters, I created this Lucky Beginning Sounds sheet. Students pull out a letter and decide which picture starts with that letter. There are 4 different sheets, so students can play against each other to get 4 in a row.
Do you LOVE these???? Well, you can get both ten frames AND the Lucky Beginning Sounds FREE HERE.
I FINALLY posted my St. Patrick's Day Math Centers. There are 11 Math Centers in all. Here are a few pictures that I took on Friday when I started to introduce them.
I LOVE dominoes and yet this is the FIRST time I have used them this year!!!! The kids LOVED them. There are 4 different domino cards. There is one for just writing the number, one for adding the numbers, one for subtracting, and this one, where students can add and subtract.
