Five for Friday {on Saturday!}


Doodle Bugs Teaching Five for Friday
There are just not enough hours in a day!  I apologize that this post is late…but I simply have not had a moment until now!

Here is what has been going on this week.

First I am stealing an idea from one of my teammates.  She tweaked a design she saw on Pinterest for an adorable door design.  What I love about it is that she didn’t have to cover the entire door with paper which we all love to do  which we know is a total pain to do!  I think the door turned out great and wouldn’t be too difficult to create.

My teammate next door  had a cute idea for a bulletin board with a Halloween theme, displaying cute work created by her students.



Her students have been working on adding within ten.  She created cute little monsters with addition sentences.  The students then represented the addition sentences with googly eyes!  What a cute idea!

My class has been working a lot with finding ten more, ten less, one more, and one less than a given number.  They are doing very well with this.  One of the activities in the Georgia Standards Framework for first grade included an activity where the students race to 99.  The students took a 99 chart and colored the alternate rows of tens in two colors.  After that, they cut the rows of tens apart and glued them together to make a REALLY long number line.  They did that part on day one in a small group with my wonderful paraprofessional.

On the next day we got to play the game.  Trying to save paper, I gave the students a square on manila drawing paper.  I modeled on the board how to design their spinner.  We were then able to place our clear spinners on top of these squares to use in this game.

1.  The students worked with a partner.

2.  They laid out the number lines next to one another all around the classroom floor.

3.  The students placed their clear counters on the zero and the game began.

4.  The first player spun the spinner and moved on the number line according to their spin.  They counted on or back ten more, ten less, one more or one less.

5.  Then the partner took a turn.  The first player  to reach 99 was the winner.  A few pairs then decided to race back to zero! 🙂

This was a super fun way to review this concept and the kids LOVED IT!  I absolutely love when the kids can learn and have fun!

Here are a few pictures from the activity:
