Winter Craftivities!

If you’re anything like the Double Dose of Learning teachers, you’re probably thinking, “how the heck are we already in January?” We always feel the beginning of the school year flashes by in the blink of an eye but that the winter season drags on. Ever heard of the saying, “January is like one long Monday”? To prevent that case-of-the-Mondays feeling, we’ve been planning tons of fun activities to keep our students engaged and focused this month.
Grab it HERE! :)


Recently our students completed some of our Winter Math Craftivities to review a portion of the math content from earlier this year. These activities were great to complete after the 10-day break our students had.

If you’re currently working on these standards, these craftivities are a fun way for students to show their learning!
*Snowball Number Bonds (up to 20)
*Arctic Animal Graphing
*Snowman Fact Family
*Snowman True/False Equations
If your school requires you to address a Common Core Learning Standard to every. single. activity…you’re in luck J The Winter Math Craftivities address both Kindergarten and 1st Grade Math CCLS:
Kindergarten CCLS
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds, acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation
Fluently add and subtract within 5.

First Grade CCLS
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem.
Relate counting to addition and subtraction

Once our students reviewed their math skills after break, we posted their math craftivities on our bulletin board so other classes could see their hard work. These craftivities are adorable outside classrooms!
Be sure to look for our other math craftivities, including our new Valentine Math Craftivities!
