This is a "growing" packet
, as each year it will be updated
with more dates. (Right now it contains years through 2032).
Here’s a quick, easy and fun
activity your kiddos can do, during that first week back from holiday break.
Students practice place value
with the “flip up” craftivity.
Even though my kiddos are just doing 3-digit numbers, they have no problem wrapping their brains around this larger number, with an added place value section.
They trace, write, cut and glue
the numbers under the appropriate "doors" that flip up, to reveal the year.
As a math extension
, for the last “window” they practice subtraction
by subtracting the year that they were born, from the New Year, to get their age.
Older students can do the writing
prompt: “Three things that are different from the New Year, than the year when I was born…”
and glue this paper on the back
of their flip up.
This can simply be basic information
, or involve technology, by sending them to the Internet, and have them find 3 specifics and compare them. i.e.,
“The president when I was born was Bill Clinton. The president now is Barack Obama.”
If you think your students will need more room, or you want to do this as a separate, writing block
or Daily 5
activity, I’ve also included 5 writing prompt worksheet
For more writing and comparison
practice, I’ve also included 2 Venn diagrams
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping this New Year is the best one yet.
