This is the SECOND bundle of my first grade Classroom Transformations! These fun challenges help make math memorable and meaningful as students learn to relate math to the real-world! These room transformations are great for first graders. Each challenge reviews an important skill that 1st grade students need to practice throughout the year.
When many people think of classroom transformations, they think:
“This would take me hours to set up.”
“This is going to cost so much money.”
“This looks so overwhelming.”
“I could never do this!”
What if I told you classroom transformations could be EASY to set up, FUN to implement, and STRESS-FREE?
A room transformation changes your room into a certain setting or theme to engage students in their own learning with rigorous content.
Classroom transformations are possible in EVERY classroom. You don’t have to spend hours of your time setting up a classroom transformation or spend lots of money to make it SO MUCH FUN!
This is a bundle of 10 math classroom transformations where students get to pretend they are actually in different careers!
Print out all 10 posters and all 10 aligned worksheets for each classroom transformation. Distribute them around your room. Give each child a recording sheet. Explain to students that they will become that career (scientists, race car drivers, cooks, etc.) and will need to complete all ten challenges around the room! They have to find all ten challenges you've left hidden around the classroom and find the answers to each one. They use the recording sheet to mark off each challenge as they go.
There is ALSO an additional writing activity where students scan the QR codes on each poster and find out fun facts about whatever career they are completing that day! This math activity is perfect for first graders. It aligns with common core standards.

There is an editable challenge paper included. This means if one of the challenges doesn't work for your classroom, you can make your own! There are ten pre-made challenges included for you to use but we all know sometimes changes are necessary to best fit your classroom :) These challenges are aligned to Common Core and TEKS.
This is a perfect review activity before giving a math assessment or as an extra practice activity. Step by step lesson plans are included so you know exactly what to do. It can be used as a spiral review and is easy to set up and implement. The QR codes add in technology as well. Classroom transformation ideas are a new trend in education and can set the stage to engage!
These classroom transformations can be used for elementary children as a worksheet alternative, printables, in math stations, center rotations, math centers, as enrichment or remediation, in small groups, as test prep, as worksheets, escape room alternatives, homework practice (take what you don’t finish home for homework), printables, and so much more! These math activities are made to be flexible so you can use them however you’d like in your classroom.
You no longer need to spend hours prepping your classroom for your next classroom transformation! These hands on, low prep activities will keep your students engaged while practicing rigorous material at the same time.
I also call these my Monday Funday math games if you've seen them on Instagram! These are easy to implement classroom transformations!
