I honestly do not remember where I got this idea. I tried looking it up to give 'them' credit, but I can't find it. So, I fully give credit to whoever created this idea!! (It wasn't me, although I wish it was) :)
It was kinda crazy while we were working on them. My kiddos wrote their numbers out on practice paper first....but it was still a little confusing. I didn't think it was going very well until I started helping them glue/tape on the tails with their ribbons. Then, I was so proud of how good they looked! We hung them out in the hall to get ready for spring and Spring Break....again, starting tomorrow! :)
Check out their pictures:
(I had them write their numbers in black crayon so people would be able to read them, but they used pencil on the ribbons. Next year we'll use black crayon on the ribbons too.)
This little boy wanted his kite to look like a race car. Hey- he was on task, focused, and excited about learning....I'll take it!
I'm almost up to 50 followers!! I'm so excited about that! So....that means an early giveaway! I am working on some math activities/centers/intervention materials to go with the Common Core Standards. In our school, each grade level spends about 40 minutes a day working with intervention/enrichment groups as part of RTI. I am currently working with some kiddos who are struggling with math- specifically number sense.
This made me want to create something that would be easy to use with these kiddos, but also something they would enjoy. I will also use these activities during my Daily 3 Math Groups. Some pages can be printed and given to students for a quick practice, assessment, or homework. Other pages can be laminated and used over and over with dry erase markers. What first grader doesn't like to use dry erase markers?!?!
I am also going to include flashcards up to 120 to align with Common Core Standards. These can easily be used for missing number activities, adding, subtracting, greater and less than, etc.
So, here is a quick look at my not finished yet (but I promise it will be) project:
Thanks to Graphics From the Pond for all of the cute graphics!
This is just a quick look. I will post it on TpT as soon as it's finished. I am heading out of state for the weekend. I will be able to finish these number sense activities, but I won't have as much access to the Internet as I do at home so I'm posting it tonight. I'll be randomly choosing 3 comments to win my "Springing into Number Sense" pack Monday night. My hubby's basketball team won their last 2 playoff games and Monday night is the championship game so hopefully we will be celebrating! Monday, April 2nd at around 11:00 pm I will randomly choose 3 people to win!
