November Calendar


Last month I almost let October slip up on me and mercy me, I did it again! October went by much faster than September. Here's the November calendar with some changes, I inserted a lot of videos that we sing along with calendar. If you don't want them in the calendar, just delete the pages.

Halloween Eraser Sorting


                      

If you read my blog often, you know the weakness I have for Dollar Trees! I love this year's erasers because they contain a cute spider and owl. I hope your students will enjoy the activity. I copied the sorting sheets on card stock and laminated them. I made two different sorting sheets. I hope your students will have a lot of sorting and counting fun!

Pumpkins Five Game


We have been working on adding and subtracting fluently to 5.  I designed this game for my math workstations. The game boards have five pumpkins and there's a set of several sets of cards from 0-5. I placed the cards in the jack-o-lantern box.You will also need a set of two color counters. Choose a card, place that number of red counters on the board. Then place the remainder of the counters yellow side up. Record them on the pumpkin response sheet and write the equation.

Candy Corn Game



This little game is a favorite of my students. They practice rolling a die and either placing candy corn erasers on the board or placing 25 erasers on the game board and remove them as they roll.I purchased the candy corn erasers from Target in the Dollar Spot.
