With all the chocolate eggs and bunnies at the supermarkets, how can you forget that Easter is just around the corner?
Thanks to my teachers I will always have fond memories of the magic and wonder they put in the lessons building up to Easter. The moment the teacher would start talking about the Easter holiday, every child’s face would light up. That is why I have eight ‘egg-cellent’ Easter Activities to check out that will liven the classroom atmosphere this year!
My kids LOVE the game Hungry Hippos. It is one of our favorite games to play when it's 'game time.' Since I like to look for ways to turn any game into an opportunity for learning, I came up with a simple 'upgrade' to include some math to this fast and fun game. The math focus in this 'upgraded' activity will be addition with multiple addends. This activity is ideal for math practice at home, math centers, or a game corner if you have in the classroom.
I developed math mysteries to be versatile in their use. After being in a teaching role that involved seeing 220 different kids a week across K-6, I initially made this math mystery range to be something that I could quickly prepare, engage, teach, be mostly self-correcting, and quick to pack up before heading onto the next classroom.. So, if you've seen these math mysteries and ever wondered what you can use them for, keep on reading.
