My teaching partner and I have changed up our morning work routine this year. We used to have the kids come in and work on a daily morning work page. The kids were stressed out because they didn’t always arrive in time to complete it and we were stressed out because we didn’t have time to go over it. (We’re departmentalized, so time is precious!!)
|Simple, seasonal, and so much fun!!|
We made the executive decision to stop being stressed. However, we knew we still had to find a way to get the kids into the day’s routine and review concepts we had already covered. What better way to do this than with games?!
We decided we would use games the kids had already played in class + new games with simple instructions they could learn on their own.
Enter Fern and her fabulous self.
When I tell you that my kids were OVER THE MOON about these games on Monday morning, I am not kidding. Not even a little bit.
When I tell you that they were easy to prep, I am drop dead serious. I printed, laminated, and then the kids cut them out! How easy is that?!?!
I love that there are a different set of cards for each group of facts. This makes it incredibly easy to find the “home” for a stray card.
Each game has a cover sheet, game cards, and student friendly directions.
The kids are loving that they can focus on the facts they need the most practice with, and we love that they are practicing their facts!!
Even better, M loves that she can leave these out as an early finisher or a sub activity. We’ve got several training days this month (Whose crazy idea was that?!) and the kids are going to love having some extra time to play with these!
