Product Description
Grab the clipboards and get ready for some math fun! This collection of 25 “Find a Friend” activities for math will have your students up and moving as they review 25 different first grade math skills, including topics in Operations, Numbers in Base 10, Geometry, and Measurement (time).

Model the completion of one box, having each of your students mark the answer and write his or her own initials in the box. Armed with clipboards and pencils, give your students a few minutes to move around your classroom to find a friend who will complete any other box, and then continue to other “math friends” until each box has been completed by a different student. There’s an answer key provided for each of the “Find a Friend” activities, so you can easily extend the learning by displaying the key on your document camera and discussing a few of the items afterwards.

These pages also work perfectly as Read the Room for Math activities for your math centers. Just print the page, cut the boxes apart and display them around your classroom. Students can record their answers on the included page.
