PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a set of 6 "math mats" to be used at the start of small guided math groups (much like guided reading groups) as a warm up. They cover counting and skip counting forward and backward by ones, twos, fives, and tens. There is also a math mat for counting money and coin identification and one for 2-D and 3-D shapes.
I've included more detailed directions for how I will use these with my students.
Also, visit my blog at www.fisforfirstgrade.blogspot.com for more information and ideas for math workshop.
Thanks,
Melissa

love your math mats...do you mats for reading?

On  September 8, 2013Melissa McMurray answered:
I use an Abc and blends chart (one or the other depending on need) as quick warm ups for some reading groups. I didn't create them though. There are lots of free ones out there with great pictures to choose from.

Hi Melissa,
I LOVE your counting mats and used them all the time last year. I was wondering, since the standards have changed for first grade, and they now need to count to 120, would you consider adding on to the counting charts so the go to 120? That would be really wonderful if you did!!

Thanks for sharing your creation :)

Hi Melissa!
I love your daily data idea!! I teach in Canada and I was wondering how much "American" stuff is included- I think most of our holidays are the same with the exception of our "Thanksgiving" being in October while yours is November. If there much "US" only content or do you think it will be okay for my little Canucks? :)
Can't wait to try them out! :)

On  July 5, 2012Melissa McMurray answered:
So sorry I'm just now responding! My mind is on summer break! Thank you so much for the kind words!! I have tried to include all the big and little holidays but like you said, I think it's all stuff that would apply to you too with the exception of Thanksgiving. I haven't made the pack for November yet, but I do plan to include Thanksgiving. I'm including 5 weeks worth of materials for each month and you would usually only need 4 of the 5 weeks so if there is one that you don't think fits in you could skip it and still have enough to last the whole month. Hope that helps. I hope to have August through January posted later this month.

I think these are so clever!! Have you thought about making them for reading skills like blends or digraphs or vowel teams? I think a lot of people would buy them!! Such a great idea!!
