Math File Folder Game

 Math
I simply took some scrap paper wrote 'Math' on it and taped it on the folder.  This is how I titled all of the folders. 

Inside the folder on the left I wrote the different activities there are for the folder. 
Example: 
  • Domino Math
  • Addition
  • Substraction
  • Equation Building

For some reason this one was the hardest for me to come up with.  
The activities for this one are more interactive for younger children.  They may need help from an adult to start off. 
Domino math I found the printable in the picture below (I do not recall where) and made my own domino's to fit out of card stock.  I didn't want to buy a whole set of domino's.  For this activity you pick a domino and place it on the picture.  You write the number of dots on the left side in the place provided below it and the same on the write.  In the = space you write the total number of dots.  
This can be done with both addition and subtraction. 
I have 2 of the tree worksheets.  On the bottom right of the tree there is a box to write a number then you place that number of animals in the tree.  Because there are two you can add/ subtract the two trees.  
The trees do not have equations on them and allows for practice writing out equations.

Paint Squirt Gun Fight

I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to do this activity ever since I saw a post about painting with squirt guns.

Paint squirt gun fight!  And it was AMAZING! 
I first bought an 8 pack of large boys white t-shirts.  I wanted the shirts to fit all of the kids and I wanted them to be able to save the shirts for the future. The 8 pack was perfect.
I filled the water guns up with paint and a pinch of water.  Each gun had a different color so we could determine a 'winner'. 
I squirted each 'player' with their color first.  So they knew their color and to demonstrate where to aim. 


Talking about the aim was very important.  All of the kids involved were 4 and above.  Aim had to be in the tummy or the back.  No faces, bottoms, heads/hair, or legs. We didn't want paint in eyes, noses, or mouths. The other places would be more difficult to clean and giving two aiming places was simple.����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������…

Teeth Craft

This craft went with our meat eater unit you can see here

I was having a difficult time thinking of activities for meat eaters.  I didn't want the sole focus to be on dinosaurs because carnivores and herbivores is a way to categorize many animals today. But everything I was running into was dinosaur related. 
Finally I found this craft! 
Materials: 

paper template of a carnivore and herbivore (I drew a hippo and t-rex head outline) page of teethscissorsgluemarkers







Little Dragon cut out the heads and then the mouth pieces. 
Then he cut out the teeth and glued them inside the mouth
To finish it he drew eyes on the head and a tongue on the inside of the mouth. 

Little Dragon was very excited to see the finished animals and open their mouths to look at their teeth.

















We wrote what the animal was on the inside


This was a fun easy craft that helps identify the difference in the teeth between carnivore and herbivore.  It is a visual reference that can be used again and again.  It can also be used for…

Elephant Faces

Elephant Faces (masks)
We used: 


Three paper platesPaint or markersPaint brushesStaplerScissorsYarnFirst paint the bottom of the paper plate.  While the kids painted I cut the other paper plate in half for the ears. Using the third plate I cut out the textured part of the plate to make the trunks.  
Paint (or color) the rest of the pieces. 
Staple them together to make an elephant.
Cut out small holes for eyes and small holes behind the ears to attach the yarn.

Now that the lesson is over I have the masks hanging in the playroom.  They make a neat decoration.
