everything down and get ready for Thanksgiving. It's less than tree weeks away you know!
So while I have had every intention of getting these stations printed out, laminated, cut up and ready to go . . . here is my pile of laminate. Actually at the time of this blog, my husband and brother-in-law are cutting these all apart. I still have some time to pull it all together before Monday. I think I can . . . I think I can.
I don't usually like to post this stuff out there without pictures of the activities actually being used, but some of these are oldies but goodies and, for my own kinders, these are stations that are independent and expectations are understood by now so perhaps it's the same for you. I'll be sure to get some pictures out this week for you all to peak at in anycase.
Until then...here's the plan. You can click on the picture to get a copy with hyperlinks.
Station 1: Thankful for Ten Frames Write the Room Fun There are two different sets of cards that can be mounted throughout your room and numerous recording sheets. Students can count items in a ten frame (or 20 frame), count on, or even identify what number is needed to make 10 (my kinders are really getting the hang of this one). All aligned to common core.
Station 7: Counting on Turkeys (Thankful for Math Galore) Students pull a turkey from a bucket, box or festive pail and write the number on the turkey located on either a black and white or colored recording sheet. They then write the numbers that come after by 'counting on.' Use a recording sheet with or without a number line for more or less scaffolding.
Station 8: Gobble Gobble (Thankful for Math Galore) Playing cards are placed in a pail or bucket (place the appropriate number and level for the readiness of your kinders) and students take turns pulling a card. If they can identify the card they can keep it. However, there are some special playing cards added to make play even more interesting. One card 'gobble gobble' requires the player to gobble like a turkey in order to gobble up a card from each of the other players.
Station 9: Stamping Stations - Lovin' Mrs. Miner's Stamping 0-20. I can easily differentiate these for those who are still struggling with mastering numbers 0-20 and appeal to those needing something a little more. Plus my kinders LOVE stamps.

That's it. Sorry for my rambling. Now it's time to get them all put together and ready for Monday. Stop back later this week. I plan (if all goes well) to have a little something for all you guys.
