Today was the kid's last day for a week-although I have PD Monday and Tuesday, I still consider it vacation :)
I wanted to do something holiday themed today, but still practicing some math skills. We're learning about division, and although we have a loooooong way to go, I wanted to end on something fun.
Enter TPT! I found some really awesome Thanksgiving themed math activities for free!
I choose which ones I wanted.
Here are the resources I used-although you can find many, many more (for free!)
*Thanksgiving Turkey Place Value
*Thanksgiving Algebraic Reasoning Puzzles
*Turkey Talk Word Problems
*Thanksgiving Word Problems
(Thanks to all the fabulous sellers who make and offer wonderful resources for free!)
I printed the cards and recording sheets last night.
I created a recording packet this morning
I explained the instructions, and told them that they could go in any order they wanted.
They immediately spread out and got to work!
I think varying the activities was important-it kept them interested! Plus, 95% of the cards were review-just to keep those skills fresh :)
We only did this for one day, but I could easily see this as a 2 or 3 day activity! I think we'll be doing something similar for the Winter break!
