1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Mitten Activities With Me
I wanted to finish up our mitten theme with several more activities + a few requests. Who knows what I'll design tomorrow; I hope you can pop by for the newest FREEBIES.
Just an FYI, if you've got a theme going and need a few more fill-in's, simply dash an e-mail off to me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what I can do.
You can use these as pocket cards, flashcards, for a bulletin board, or your winter word wall. Students can also make their own Itty Bitty booklet.
Make extra sets, laminate and trim and use for Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?" games. Cut them up to make puzzles for centers, assessing, or more games. Click on the link to view down load The Mitten Number Packet.
I also had a request from Dana, in Wisconsin, for some mitten time cards to match the other fall-themed ones. Click on the link to view/download the Mitten Clock Cards. They reinforce Common Core State Standard: 1.MD.3
There are cards for analog as well as digital time, a blank set you can use for assessing, and plain red or black and white mittens to program with whatever. These are great for flashcards, puzzles and games too.
Since mittens come in pairs, I thought it would be fun to review things that come in pairs with your kiddo's.
This leads to a really interesting discussion, because the word "pair" is used for a pair of pants or a pair of sunglasses, even though they are only one item.
I enjoyed researching and making up a list of "single" item pairs, as well as a list of 38 things that come in pairs like mittens. Challenge your students to make up their own lists.
The packet includes a variety of skip counting by 2's worksheets, a bookmark + a certificate of praise. Click on the link to view/download the Mitten Skp Counting Pair Packet.
Since the graphic organizer activities have been so popular, I decided to make 3 with a mitten-theme. This is a great way to build vocabulary, as well as reinforce the use of adjectives.
After students have completed their mitten graphic organizer(s), have them write several descriptive sentences incorporating words from their lists. I included some samples for you to share with your students. Click on the link to view/download the Mitten Graphic Organizers.
Finally, Kathy in chilly Colorado, asked for a set of mitten 10-frames. Click on the link to view/download them.
She also wanted to know if I had any mitten number sliders. I do.
This mitten "craftivity" is found in the Monthly Place Value Slider Packet.
That's it for today's FREEBIES. Thanks for visiting.
