1 Student + 1 Fun Activity = Learning!
I’ve been busy designing all sorts of easy readers that incorporate a variety of standards so you get more bang for your time buck.
I also like to overlap math with language arts so that I can cover even more standards with one activity.
I try to design my booklets so that they have a consistent format.
That way even when it’s a new month with a new theme, the format is the same.
Students feel empowered and their self-esteem is built, because once they have done that first booklet, little or no directions have to be explained for students to get right down to business.
I think this is one of the reasons for the popularity of the 1-2-3 Count With Me series.

I’m working on 123 Count Valentines With Me this week, and just finished 123 Count Groundhogs With Me.

My Y5’s never got tired of doing them.
A new series I plan on doing once a month, ‘til all of the months are covered, is the +1 Addition Booklets.
I just completed January’s +1 Snowman Addition Booklet,
as well as the Plus 1 Valentine Addition Booklet for February.
Click on the links to view/download them.The booklets help review Common Core State Math Standards: K.CC.3, K.CC.4a, K.CC.4b, K.CC.4c, K.CC.5, K.OA.1, K.OA.5, K.G.1
The easy readers help your students learn the concept of +1 more addition as well as spatial directions.
Students trace and write the numbers and number word and then follow the spatial directions of where to glue that many snowflakes or Valentine hearts.
They also circle the number in its proper sequence.
All booklets in this series will include a graphing extension and certificate of praise.
Be sure and check back for a kite or shamrock one for March, a butterfly one for April, and one with a frog theme for May!
Thanks for visiting today. Feel free to PIN anything you think may be of help to others.
