I started back to work yesterday calling my parents and adding a few fun things to the walls. I have so many great things I am going to be doing with my kids this year I can hardly wait! I had a request from a couple people wanting to know what the contents of my activity boxes were, so I took some pictures to show you. Currently we have 22 activity boxes on our shelves. If you have any questions about a box just leave me a comment and I will get back to you. A few of these items I found on Pinterest and I'm sure I can find the links if you need them.L - R *Students have to separate money by denomination, tall the amount of each coin, write the amount of money they have of each coin, then graph each coin. *Pattern Blocks - especially loved by my autistic students * For each number on the card the students have to add that many mini clothespins. * Sorting by colors into the corresponding bowls.
L - R * Make each pattern using the blocks * Link the amount of clips to each number so they match * Stamping out their personal info * 100 chart (my higher kids use the other side that doesn't have the numbers
L - R * Money eggs - open each egg, add up the amount of coins and write it on the corresponding number on their answer page * Playdough measuring - Students roll playdough into snake like figures to match the measurement shown on each card * Roll two dice add the numbers of each dice to the worksheet and add * Dice in Dice - Roll two dice, use the outside number first and write that amount on the first line, do the same for the second dice, then add the amounts.
L - R *Place the proper nut onto each bolt sort into buckets (not shown) * Make a clock - students much add numbers, cut, out clock and hands, punch holes and put together * Roll 1 dice in dice, use the outside number than the inside number to get your total. Then do 10 more and ten less of that number * Students must weigh each of the items on their worksheet (lbs and oz) for example, 3 books, 10 markers, then find three more things they want to measure and add those to their answer sheet as well.
L - R * Geoboards- follow the patterns on the laminated cards to make a matching pattern. * Students put their color blocks randomly on the card. Taking turns, roll 2 dice and if one of the numbers matches a number you have a block on you can remove 1 block from that number * Counting Coins - there are 5 cards up to 41 - 50 place the amount of money asked for in the row provided * Match the time on each block to the time on the sheet.
L - R * students need to add the proper amount of each item into each first aid kit according to the paper. * Peg blocks. - for my lower kids I may only bring out one box and pegs, my higher kids like to bring them all out and see who can do it the fastest.
