One of the changes I made in my classroom for our winter break return was to have a separate science area and math area during our center play. We do math and science activities during small group time, but I felt that we didn't do enough. So I have used two tables and am now planning a specific science and math activity to put at each table during centers. For our first week back, here were our activities:
Hot Chocolate Counting: use tweezers to apply the correct number of marshmallows in each cup.
Magnetic Pipe Cleaner Bottles: use the magnets to move the pipe cleaners around inside of the bottles.
This week we will have snowman button counting at the math table & our magnetic pipe cleaner bottles again, but with a recording sheet. I have both of these items to share with you!
I could have just made some snowmen on construction paper but then I wouldn't have been able to share them with you! So I made these ones myself. They are missing scarves because that was above my capabilities! You can download for free below.
