Just a quick link up to share a colorful way to incorporate math during the holiday season with my BBB Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday!
Each picture needs a blank grid paper to start.
Each mystery picture has a color key at the top of the page. Each line on the grid is colored according to the key. For example, the picture below shows all 11 boxes will be shaded green on the first line. On the second line, the first three boxes will be completely green, the next box will be 1/2 green, 1/2 white box, then one full green, etc. Students think coloring is easy, but these can be tricky if you're not paying attention to detail.
When they finish coloring, they discover what their mystery picture is!
I have used these since my first year teaching (long ago!) and my students have loved them every year! I have them for all holidays and some other non-seasonal pictures too.
Don't worry...I found a few samples for you just in time for Christmas!
Includes directions and two mystery pictures.
Perfect for homework, early finishers, and on the last day before school gets out for winter break...nice, quiet activity! (You're welcome!) LOL!
I also have a FREEBIE in my TPT Store for fact families and factors!
Click the image to download-feedback is always appreciated! :)
Hope these ideas come in handy for the upcoming weeks!
Have a great Thursday & Friday!
