Painting on wet glue with food colouring. This is such an interesting and unique craft idea. Once the glue has completely dried then peel it off, punch a hole in the top and hang with a string in a window...the result is a beautiful sun catcher!
Painting on Wet Glue - Housing a Forest
tracing letters and numbers with Matchbox cars
The game is simple, but the strategy will keep your students engaged for hours: roll 3 dice, choose 2, add the numbers together and cover up that number on the board. Except things aren't so easy: if you roll a 1, 1 and 6, should you combine 1 + 1 = 2, or 1 + 6 = 7? This game opens up some nice opportunities to discuss winning strategies using probability.
This would be great for substitute teaching! BINGO board. When a kid is doing what he/she is supposed to be doing and I catch him/her, that student then gets to sign his/her name in a box. At the end of the day, I roll a dice for the letter and the number. The student gets a simple reward. - Good Behavior Management!
CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT~ Students write their names in a spot when caught doing something positive/good. At the end of day, or when the board is full, roll two dice and the student in the coordinating spot gets a treat.
DIY addition machine! What a great way to visually see what addition means.
Three Tiny Tips: use colored dots on desks to call to the carpet, line up. green dots, come collect the paper, etc....
Each day we decide how many dots we need to add to make the number (This is always fun to ask on a Monday after the weekend) After another student fixes the number at the bottom a student will use a pointer to count the dots. After counting one way I'll ask Can we can count another way (by 5s of 10s)? How many dots until we have 10? 20?
