In math, we worked on reviewing time to the hour. The kids had two sets of time cards they had to record on. On one set, they had to read the time on the clock and write it in digital form. On the second set, they had to read the time in digital form and write the hands in the correct place.
The kids' second math station this week was graphing winter sports, then writing how many of each one they graphed, which had the most and out of 2 choices, which had more and which had less.
Their third math station this week was adding two numbers on ornaments to equal the number on the Christmas Tree. They could either use numbered ornaments or blank ornaments and count the amounts out.
At the end of the day when we had some free time, I had a group play on the carpet. One was the reader and the rest were the word makers.

During snack one day this week I told the kids I gave them 7 crackers, then 2 more and asked how many they had now.One of my boys shouted out "9" and then another said "but 4 plus 5 is 9, too" to which one of the girls replied "so is 8 plus 1". Thus, a teaching moment was born! We have been working on all of the different numbers that add up to a specific number. We wrote the facts the kids said on the board then kept going until we had them all. Then, I showed them that some facts in addition are the same numbers just in a different order. After we did addition facts for 9, they wanted to keep going. We ended up doing one a day until the last day of school. Here are the ones I took a picture of the first day they did them (with 15 minutes of school left!)
