more Math fun

So many blogs have such great downloadables that we always have something fun and new to do.  This pumpkin roll and color sheet came from one of them.  I still cannot figure out how to upload sheets that i create and then connect them to my blog so if any of you could explain this in simple form i might get it.  I've tried googledocs and scribd.

Before i found the ghost erasers they only had to put the ghosts, the came from a notepad, in order; now they get to count out the right number of ghosts with each one.

They love using the erasers for counters.

The geoboards have come back out .

halloween and drug awareness week

As we do drug awareness week during the Halloween season I have combined the 2 to try to win our door decorating contest.  The kids traced and cut out their hands to make the ghosts that are on the doorframe.  They didn't want to put them "on" the door itself. I let them put them where they wanted to.  I think this week I'll try harder to get them on the door.  What do you think?

math tub time

We work on patterns all year and snap cubes are perfect for this.
I believe a teacher can never have enough manipulatives.  I have collected so many over the years.  No matter how old they are the kids love being able to complete the activites independently.  
And That's What's It's All About!!

I have a ton of folder games and the kids love them.

Thanx to so many good blogs I drug out the play-doh to use for teaching, not just playing.

Dollar Tree erasers are great for sorting and patterns.
