Tally

Teach tally marks in a concrete, tactile way with popsicle sticks. Make the one a different color, intentionally. Ideas for the Special Education Classroom.

Kinder-Gardening:  I made a larger version of a number bracelet using a hula hoop and pool noodles that I cut into "beads." This is also handy when decomposing numbers. You can add or take off as many beads as you need!

Make your own oversized dice out of white boxes to decorate entryway

Math night - or even for a classroom math all-day party. Math questions hidden in the balloons? Large dice so the whole class can read the numbers and respond? Maybe large dice as seats?

Here's another approach to making a Rekenrek.  I used cardboard when I made mine, but I think foam is a great idea! (I also used pipe cleaners and pony beads!)

Ten frame toss! This is a fun game to practice decomposing the number ten. To play, students shake and spill a cup of ten two-color counters onto the table. They place them in the ten frame and fill in the recording sheet using bingo markers (or crayons). Finally, they write the equation.

Popsicle stick chain reaction - kids would love this as a way to study potential and kinetic energy!

Super cool activity to do with the kiddos sometime! The popsicle stick chain reaction :) Weave together sticks and let the last one go to watch them all fly up in the air down the track!

towers up!  Really a cute and easy game! I think this could be a really great home connection for the newsletter.  Most of the kids have something they can stack at home.  And if you made a game board and then copied it with the directions it would be fun. Or a check out back pack?
