Time Filler Games
Pop some bubble wrap, carve a pumpkin, create a snowflake, design your wild-self, make a snowman, or decorate a gingerbread cookie! You need the SmartNotebook software to view/use these files: http://www2.smarttech.com/st/en-US/Support/SBS/.
I print a bunch of 100s grids at the beginning of the year so that I always have them on hand. They are great for many activities, this one is no exception - - The kids love this "game" - - and it hones in on so many great math skills, too! To play, distribute a 100s grid to each student. Select a "picture" and begin prompting students to shade in a cell by prompting them to do so. Each prompt can be unique to fit your students' needs. For example, you could say, "please shade in the cell that is 3 + 12. Now shade in the cell that has 4 tens and 9 ones." These are just a few examples!
Download the 100 grids HERE, and download SAMPLE LETTER PROMPTS and PICTURE PROMPTS! Please note, that the picture designs came from dedicated teachers just like you! If you are the author of one of the designs, please email me with your name and I will give you authorship credit. I believe the letter designs came from Marcy Cook. These and other great 100 chart activities can be found in Marcy Cook's 100 chart books: http://www.marcycookmath.com/chartbks.htm.
"I Have ___, Who Has ____"
the end of 1st grade. They loved this game!
NUMBERS game here, and download the
WORDS game here! Be sure to allow enough time to complete the
game. I'd say that on the average, my students could complete the
game in roughly 15 minutes. Feel free to adapt the document to fit
your class' needs!
