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?

Let's Start with the Basics...What is a Classroom Transformation?

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!

Skills Included

Version #1: Addition Facts from 1-20 (Recite Facts)

Version #2: Subtraction Facts from 1-20 (Recite Facts)

Version #3: Addition Facts from 1-20 (Practice Math Facts on Paper)

Version #4: Subtraction Facts from 1-20 (Practice Math Facts on Paper)

A Quick Description

Help your 2nd grade students become math experts in your classroom! Students complete addition or subtraction fact challenges that are engaging and fun.

Tell your class that they are at boot camp today! They will have to complete 10 challenges to finish boot camp!

Step 1: Students choose which fact they’d like to practice first and grab a practice paper.

Step 2: When a student comes up to you to be tested, you pull out the challenge paper and tell him he has 1 minute 30 seconds (however much time you choose) to recite all 12 facts on the paper! Students may try to recite their facts individually, with a partner, or with a group! Your choice!

Step 3: If the student recites all facts correctly, then you sign their recording sheet and they move onto another fact! They go and get another fact’s practice paper. If they recite all the 3 facts correct, you sign the +3 spot on their recording sheet!

Step 4: If the student does not recite the facts correctly, they get to complete an “Obstacle Card!” The kids have to do some sort of exercise before they can go practice their facts again and try to pass the challenge!

Step 5: If any 2nd grade student finishes fast or early, they can complete the early finisher activity! Place the QR Codes around the room. Kids scan them and find out facts about the army that they may not have known before. They also get a certificate of completion!

There are 4 of each challenge included so kids can’t predict which fact is coming next when you’re quizzing them! This math activity is perfect for second graders. It aligns with 2.OA.2.

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 an addition or subtraction assessment or as an extra practice activity. It can be used as a spiral review and is easy to set up and implement. Step by step lesson plans are included so you know exactly what to do. It is great for any class that needs something fun to reinforce what you've already taught. The QR codes add in technology as well and students learn new facts about the army. 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), digital theme days, end of year themed days, classroom transformation kits, 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!
