Ya’ll. It is COLD! I am sitting here writing this in my warm and cozy office, so thankful I don’t have to go into work today! It is something like -1,000,000,000 degrees in Illinois. All of my friends are here in the midwest, but I spent a good part of my life in the south, and days like these are definitely motivation to move back down there!!
Anyway, in celebration of this “cold day,” I have a little freebie to share with you! It’s a math center for K or 1st with a winter theme. Math centers are one of my favorite resources to make! Kinders and firsties need lots of repetition to learn counting, addition, and subtraction skills. Themed math centers can be a fun way to help them get that repetition in, without it becoming boring.
Here’s a photo from my winter math centers for K and 1st. Both packs have a version of this penguin spinner, but the spinner in the photo is from the first grade pack. In the first grade game, each player spins twice – one digit goes in the tens place, and the next digit in the ones place. The players compare their numbers with the <, >, or = sign on a recording sheet, and the larger number wins!
