The Friday at the end of Spring Break is always bittersweet. I love my class, but nothing beats the relaxing pace of Spring Break.
On the last day before our Spring Break began, the kids had a great time with this review game.
I set this game up to review subtraction facts, but it could just as easily be used to practice addition facts. This game is played following the general concept of Chutes and Ladders. The game is played in partners. To begin the game, both partners start on one square. The first partner flips over two cards and find the difference between the two numbers. Then, they move their game piece (I used Spring erasers) that number of spaces. If a rainbow is landed on, you get to move your game piece to a higher number on the board by sliding on the rainbow. If a star burst is landed on, you have to move back to a lower number on the board.
The kids had a lot of fun with this unit and begged to keep playing with math time was over. If you would like to try the game with your class, you can download it as a FREEBIE by clicking the image above.
Can you say Spring Cleaning??? Not the most exciting way to spend Spring Break, but a clean house makes me happy! I spent the first couple of days of break cleaning so that I could relax and enjoy the cleanliness. I know it won't last long but it's nice to see the sparkle while it lasts!
I always know that Spring is here when the sounds of baseball are filling the house on a nightly basis!
I enjoyed a relaxing lunch at the food truck park. I am going to miss these relaxing afternoons next week!
I will be spending the last couple of days of Spring Break preparing these fun Telling Time Activities for math workshop time next week.
