I made these 2 years ago and they are still going strong! I collected tons of pop tops and then cleaned them good. I bought the little round garage sale stickers. The Math fact is on the outside of the top, the answer is on another sticker on the inside. The kids put them all outsides up and sit in a circle. They chose one, say the fact and the answer, then check. If they are right, they keep it, if not it goes back in the pile. They really loved this.
My next rotation was one I thought of the night before. I saw these super adorable calendar cards on Doodle Bugs Teaching blog! (Kacey's stuff is always cute!!) Well we just finished our chapter on double digit by double digit multiplication. I printed them, laminated, cut them out and the kids used their dry erase boards. They sat in a circle, put all the cards face down. They took turns turning over 2 at a time, then had to multiply. When they were all done they checked answers. I couldn't get over how truly sweet and patient some of the kids were with others that weren't as fast or maybe doing something wrong....so proud of them:)
Our last rotation was a cute game I got as a freebie from Sunny Days in Second Grade. Love this blog too!! Denise is having a 5 days giveaway and this was one of them. Be sure to go check it out!! This game is called Reindeer Dash. It's addition and subtraction. Super fun!!
Needless to say, we will be doing more of this in the next 2 weeks!! My kids had a blast and were learning all along!!
I also wanted to let you know I have posted a few new activities to my Teachers Notebook store and would be oh so happy if you would take a sec and check them out:D
Happy weekend all!!!
