Spin, Spin, Solve--Hands on Math

Friday, March 28, 2014
After looping with my group of kiddos for the past few years they need to stay motivated to work and learn.   I have found out that they work best when they are "playing."  So I decided to add a few spinners and some hands on manipulatives to make adding and subtracting a little more exciting... I guess it worked because I got a parent letter, telling me she looked in Target for the game that her son was talking about.  I made her a set and sent it home secretly.  One rainy weekend  the mom broke out the game and was amazed at how much her son enjoyed "learning." Take a peek at the pictures to see how to make learning fun!   More themes and additional facts coming soon.  

This Fishbowl Math game comes with addition and subtraction work mats.  Matching manipulatives and blackline masters for on the go practice.

This set is on sale this weekend as part of my SPRING CLEANING SALE.  NO CODE needed.  Just fill up your cart and check out with the sale price.   
LOOK at all the other fabulous teacher authors have a sale too!  

Hands on Math.... Making a Trade!

Thursday, March 13, 2014
Regrouping 2 digit numbers has become my number one difficulty with my 2nd graders so far this year.  The mixed level class, the common core, or the concept, I can;t put my finger on it.   So I created these hands on math mats to get my struggling kids more comfortable with regrouping.  

Students chose a board.  They show the top digit using tens and ones.  Then they show the middle digit with tens and ones.  They MAKE A TRADE if necessary and then SLIDE down to solve! Fun, interactive, and hands on!  

                                 SHOW                                   TRADE

                              SHOW                                TRADE

Looking for more challenging or less challenging math mats?  Create your own problems or have the students create them for each other!  Fun for everyone.
