This packet includes 7 standards-based math activities for a kindergarten classroom to celebrate March Madness!! Capture your students' interest in sports and use it to get them excited about math!!
On one page, students count sets and match the corresponding numeral.
On another page, students extend AB, AAB, and ABC patterns using clip art associated with basketball.
On the next two pages, students create graphs based on sets of obejcts associated with basketball. On one of the graphing pages, the sets are already sorted; on the other, students must sort the objects themselves before graphing. These two worksheets can be used as a progression, or can be used to differentiate instruction in your classroom. There is also a graph interpretation page (which can be used with either graph or both) where students count the sets on their graph, choose the object with the most and least, and write a sentence about the graph.
On the next page, students choose the bigger number in each box; this is great practice for the AimsWeb Quantity Discrimination task.
On the last page, students write the missing number in a sequence of three numbers, such as 1 2 __, or 4 ___ 6, or ___ 7 8. This is wonderful practice for the AimsWeb Missing Number task.
This set would make nice morning work, classwork, or homework for the time around March Madness. They could also be used as part of a math center or math station. These activities will allow you to celebrate March Madness, while also including important math standards.
Thanks for looking and happy teaching!!
Enjoy March Mathness!!
