I made 7 of these packs. I will be sending home a letter to parents next week introducing them and then start sending the Math Packs home the following week. This will be part of their homework. They will take them home one night a week and bring them back the next day for another student. The packs have different games in them for multiplication practice. I am going to start with 2 games and then rotate those weekly. Eventually I will incorporate fraction games and others but right now the need is MULTIPLICATION!! I still have to add little bags of counters and things....those are at school but so far this is what I have for the bags.
I got these cute bags at the Dollar Tree.
This is a reminder/info. letter that will go in each bag for the parents.
One of the games I made from my Teachers Notebook (I just changed the directions for the parents)
A wonderful free download I got from Teachers Notebook at Circus of Learning. You can also check out Emily's blog here:) She's got some great stuff!
I also wanted to share this awesome find at Dollar Tree. They are FOAM!!! FOAM!!! No more noise of rolling dice on the desktops!! Yipee!!
Not only am I going to incorporate these into my Math Packs but also into some Math group games. We numbered them 4-9. My kids know their 1's and 2's and aren't too bad with their 3's.....it's those other numbers (minus the 5"s). Rollem and multiply away:)
I am pretty excited about this new project and am hoping it is successful! I have laminated everything in hopes they will be a little more durable. I know there will be lost pieces and even some forgetting of the bags at home....I will work around that but my hope and prayer is that they will not only get better with their math facts but also get some fun family time in too:)
This will be it from me until next year so I wanted to say Happy New Year to all my bloggy buds. You truly don't know how your comments, encouragements, emails, cyber hugs (Kim:) ), and inspirations have truly blessed my life! Have a blessed and safe New Year!! I'll be back Monday with a super cute new addition to my classroom:D (NO, it is not another animal!!! teehee)
