Monday Made It

Hello Bloggy Friends! Don't forget to enter my End of School Year Celebration Giveaway here. My sister graduated from high school yesterday, and we had a day filled with family and celebration. Tomorrow or Wednesday, I'll catch up on some outfit posts :) (Tomorrow I go and sign all the paperwork for my new job, and check out the area to find out where I want to live, which could possibly take all day. I'm also hoping to stop by my new school and check it out and hopefully unload some stuff!)

Now, for the regularly scheduled part of Mondays...Tara's Monday Made It.

Now, these are still a work in progress, but I just need to glue everything down. This Monday I am working on....Math File Folder games! My early finishers can always use more practice with their math and reading skills, and most of these math games are ones that can be played by themselves or with 1 other friend. I got the games from this book:
Here are some of the games I have made so far...

Gopher Golf: Students practice mixed computational skills (addition and subtraction) by chasing the gopher from hole to hole solving the problems.

Creepy Crawly Fractions: Students practice their fraction equivalents. Students spin the spinner and have to move their crawly to the crawly that has the nearest equivalent fraction to what they spun.

Reminder Raccoon: Students practice dividing numbers with reminders. You move one space each time and spin the spinner to find out what number you are going to divide by.

 Linkopolis: Students use logical thinking, and graphing to link all the landmarks together. However,one road can't cross another, roads can't pass through landmarks, and no landmark can have more than 3 roads going to/from it! (Think the dot box game)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
Smiles and Sunshine,

  2. File folder games are the best! I need to make some over the summer.... I'm so unmotivated to actually put them together during the school year.
