It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

Christmas in my classroom!  Before I left on Friday, I changed my math tubs and theme books out. Thanksgiving went away and Christmas was loaded.  I have a lot of fun tubs work for my kids, so I like to start right after Thanksgiving.  Here is what I put in my math tubs for the first week back.

Now that my kids are understanding part-part-whole, they love this activity.  I tell them they need to solve a mystery and find the missing number.

Starting with part-part-whole has really made teaching fact families a little easier.

This tally practice, I set up as a "read the room" activity.  So they have to walk around and find the cards and then record the number of tally marks.

Addition equations sort

Non-standard measuring with bells.  I put small bells in their tub, but I want to get larger ones too.  It will fun for them to compare the different measurements.  I made a printable bell measuring tool as well in case a child cannot handle using the bells.

And finally the North Pole Find, Tally and Graph.  I put the find and tally in one tub, and the find and graph in another tub.  I tried to put them all together, but most cannot finish both of them during their tub time.  If you are interested in these activities, click on the picture below.

I am so excited, I love the holiday season!  I will share some of my favorite read alouds later this week. Enjoy your weekend!
