I LOVE Kindergarten, but hate Everyday Math!!! I know I shouldn't say such things, but Geesh, it is Blahhhh!
I constantly have to remediate and back track with my Kinder Kiddo's to get any type of long term recognition of ANYTHING MATHEMATICAL! Hum??? I wonder if the county sees a correlation between the use of EM and the substantial drop in math scores.
Anyway, enough of that.... I love math work stations and boy have I created a lot this year and sadly haven't been sharing (insert sad face and sighs). Well, I am now! Here is a little activity that I pretty much use every week with my students. My poor laminated dice are used and abused, but I love them!
Here are just a few ways you can use this file.
Just click on the picture!
I also have a little autistic fellow (yes, he is in regular ed, and it is like pulling teeth to get him any sort of help) that likes to use these to count out playdough balls. He will roll a ball and put it on the circle of the die. He will do this with pretty much any manipulative we have, including teddy bear counters. Love it when he uses them. He says "Ta Da" like they are on stage. :)
Hope someone out there can use them. Stay tuned for more free stuff soon!
