Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying their extra day off.....if you have it off, that is. I saw that a few teachers are having Staff Development Day today.......on President's Day???
Our SDD is tomorrow, so the kids are having a 4-day weekend. Lucky for them!! My daughter gets the day off, but my son that attends k-12 virtual academy still has school. They don't have SDD's.
I was so excited when Cindy from "Love2Learn2Day" left me a comment Saturday on my ten frames and linked them up on her Math Monday Blog Hop!! Thanks Cindy! If you're looking for Math ideas, or have math ideas of your own, this is your one-stop blog!
Thanks for the inspiration Cindy to get these dice done lastnight. I'm linking up my dice today with Cindy and also at Classroom Freebies.
Specifically, I made these dice to help my students learn to identify the dots on a dice without counting the dots, just like on my ten frames. Hopefully this will lead to them also doing this with their fingers. I briefly flash the card to my students and they will have to tell me how many and how they knew that.
I made them in two colors so that they can also be used for matching, adding, and subtraction activities. As I did with the ten frames, I will cut these out, laminate them, and put them on a ring.
The ten frames and dice are the beginning to building base ten knowledge for students.
Also, don't forget to visit Holly at Criss Cross Applesauce in First Grade for a HUGE Giveaway blog hop! Little time left....the giveaways started ending today and will continue to end throughout the week!
Another great giveaway is going on over at Ruby Slippers! She is giving away a blog design!!!! I have so been wanting a custom blog design! What a fabulous giveaway!
---Edit--- Quick edit here......my husband just reminded me that today is our wedding anniversary!!! 19 years! So Happy Anniversary to me! Unusual when the man remembers and the woman forgets! Gotta Love That!! :)
