A Math Freebie for Freebie Friday!

I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' AND Teaching Blog Addict for Freebie Friday!

The last two days I have been assessing my kiddos using the end-of-year Title I Kindergarten Math test. This is all stuff that they should have mastered before leaving kindergarten. Guess what? They didn't!

This makes me kind of sad and kind of happy. Sad because they are behind already but happy because there's so much room for growth! I also love teaching math, so this gives me all sorts of opportunities to create fun activities for my classroom!

Quick quiz: Name these shapes:

Did you say "Reftangle, oxen and square thingy"?? I kid you not, that is exactly what one of my more adorable firsties told me today. She is a sweet, precious little thing, but clearly not up to par on shapes! A lot of my others are similarly shape challenged (although their answers were not as cute as hers). That's ok, my Common Core 2D Shapes Packet will get a good workout now :)

I also have a bunch of kiddos with attention problems. One of the things that I love to do is Read & Write the Room because this gets those kiddos up and moving with a purpose.With R&WTR they get to walk around the room and search for the cards, something that grabs their attention while allowing them to get a little energy out. This is also great for those kiddos that don't get enough sleep at night and start to doze off - get them on their feet and walking around to increase the blood flow to their brains and wake them back up again!

So, without further ado, here is my Addition Read and Write the Room freebie! Included are 16 basic addition cards and a recording sheet! Please let me know if you like it, as I have a vision of doing a whole slew of R&WTR Math sets! Just click the picture to download it for free!

Have a great night! Look for a Center Series post from me tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing. I often use write the room activities during phonics or vocab lessons, but have never practiced math facts that way. My students will enjoy this activity. :)
