Here’s a look at our Math work the first few days of school. 🙂


We experimented with Unifix Cubes.  🙂IMG_5609

We also played the “xylophone” game.  I “ding” the xylophone and each time I play a note, the kiddos put a tile on their mat.  I made these mats MANY years ago on my computer and just printed them on fun paper.  I think I’m going to print some with Ten Frames soon so the kids can see how different quantities look on a Ten Frame.  I will also put numbers into the Ten Frames on one set. 🙂

    I love the xylophone game! Where did you get that? Do you have any other games like that?


    • Hi Kristin,
      I can’t remember where I got that game from-it might be a compilation of several games I’ve used in the past. Super simple and easy!
      I’ll post others as I use them in class. 🙂

  2. Sounds like fun! Can you explain the plants on their tables?

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Carol,
      The plants are mostly there for fun, to clean the air, and to help my kiddos learn how to care for another living thing. 🙂
      They are going on 3 years old and only 5 spills! 2 were by me! 🙂

      Kristen 🙂
