Math is in full "spring!"

Hello Everyone!
We are loving math lately!!  A couple of our favorite things we have done this week are our "Are You My Mother?" game and our "Scrambled Math." 
Our "Are You My Mother?" game came after reading the book by PD Eastman. The object of the game was to solve math problems to create a path for the baby bird to get to his mother. The kids each got a plastic egg with a number sentence  inside.  We took turns solving the problems and placing our eggs on the 120 board until a path was created!  Kids loved it!!  Lots of math talk!!


Our second favorite thing we did so far this week is "Scramble Math." We used oversized letter tiles similar to scrabble and created words.  Adding up the points for each word provided some practice with all the addition strategies we need to keep fresh! 

This game along with a ton more including an individual version of the Scramble Math are part of the packet I posted last week, but in case you missed it...

Finally I want to share what is going into my math tubs next week.  Lots of fun Spring math with a focus on comparing numbers to 120, with lots of opportunity for kids to talk math!!
Here are a few pics from the Spring Fling Packet.

If you would like to add some fun springtime math to your day,
There are six activities (28 pages) for your kids to enjoy!

I can't wait to share what we've been working on the past couple of weeks in writing!!  I am so proud of the work the kids are doing!!  So stay tuned!!!
Thanks for stopping by on this busy night. I appreciate you!! Your support keeps me sharing!!
