Today is all about movement. The week after Christmas break I have plan more fun and hands on activities to help kiddos with the transition back to school. Here is one of the activities we did during math centers….
To prep for the activity I copied and laminated white snowflakes in two different sizes. We started by reading a poem about snowflakes and how they build up in numbers. Next, I climbed on the table and tossed the snowflakes up into the air. Don’t worry- I told the kiddos never to climb on the table! ?
We ended the activity by discussing who caught the most, least, etc. The kiddos liked it so much they asked to do it again!
This fun and active math activity covered the following skills:
- Counting: snowflakes, graph squares
- Graphing: parts of a graph, making and reading a graph
- Attending: to the activity and to peers as they took their turns
Motor skills: visually following the falling snowflakes & gathering thesnowflakes
One to one correspondence: counting up the snowflakes and the graphingsquares
