Math About Me

I want to tell you about a really easy and fun get to know you activity. This can also be used for a fun math activity throughout the year.

Have your students fill out the different sections by creating math sentence, models, or pictures to represent information about themselves. This is a great review of place value concepts, fact families, and more.  Then the students can color or...

Arctic Art Project

I'm going to tell you about an super easy, 3-step art project that is great for these winter months. 1. Grab a blank piece of paper, some paint/paintbrush, and a cup of water. 2. Paint the paper a mixture of blue and purple paint so it looks like twilight or evening. 3. Take some cutouts of a tree and stars (I've also used snowflakes) and glue them on the page. That's it! You're done! It takes a really short time but the effect is pretty cool don't you think?     PEACE, LOVE, AND STICKY NOTES
