French Fry Math Center FREEBIE & a Super-Big Thank You!


A big "Hey!" to everyone! First, I want to give a super big "Thanks" to Miss Bowers over at First Grade Jabber for awarding me the "Versatile Blogger Award"! WOWsie! I'm honored-you are just too sweet!

And I'm really excited to share one of our fun math activities that we worked on this week... "French Fry Facts"! We've been working really hard on addition and finding different ways to make numbers. This was a really fun activity! I started by cutting yellow construction paper into strips to make french fry counters. Then I had the kiddos separate the fries into two groups and come up with addition facts.

Then the students worked in groups & I gave each group a French Fry Sum Card. They worked together to find as many addition math facts for that sum as possible and then wrote those math sentences on their construction paper french fries. We then placed the addition facts in the correct french fry box. {I kinda came up with this display below at the last minute so don't look too close at those french fry boxes...they are a little bit crooked! Oh well-my firsties LOVED this activity anyway!}


Okay blogging friends, here is the math center FREEBIE!!! Gotta LoVe those freebies!!! Just click the pic below to download your copy! Sure do hope your kiddos enjoy this center as much as mine have!!

Just one more lil thing I want to mention...The Clutter Free Classroom is hosting a "Peek Into My Planbook" linky party. So...I've linked up my math activity to this great collection of classroom plans. Head on over to check them all out!
