Math Madness Wednesday: Get Them MOVING!!

Welcome back to school! I hope you have eased your way back to school (or soon will). Of course, I know some of you have already had your first delays or snow days of the year as well. That got me to think about how this time of year can be so tough on kids who need to move around. Not only have they just come back from a break where the rules and routines were not normal, but if you live in a cold climate, they also can’t get outside to wiggle around either. One way to help with that (besides lots of Ibuprofen for the headaches!) is to add movement into your classroom. Kids like to get up and move and you want them to be learning at the same time.
So some teacher friends and I have teamed up to load you up with resources to make teaching a bit easier! It is a good mix of printables along with activities that will get them out of their seat!
I asked one of my friends, Tami from Kamp Kindergarten, to share about her product that is included in the bundle. Here is what she had to say:

2015-01-06_21-05-08_570My items from the bundle include 2 Around the Room activities (one for addition and one for subtraction). These can be used similarly to Read the Room, but these include math facts instead.

2015-01-06_21-05-50_163Students can carry their recording sheet on a clipboard, travel the room finding the cards you have hung up, and record the entire equation.

I use these little clips that are around my room so I can easily switch out the cards I use with these activities.
And, for easy storage, I include a copy of the recording sheet, as well as the cards, in a sheet protector and add them all to a binder so I can easily find everything I need in one place.
