**REFRESHED APRIL 2016!! Same great concept but with updated fonts, clip art, and easier to follow directions! We are excited about the changes and know you will be too!**
Thank you for looking at 1st Grade Math Bags! We have been using Math Bags for years and have seen a lot of great things come from them. When we created these, we wanted a system in which the students could work on independent math activities while we met with students in small groups. We didn’t want to...change math centers every week or 2 weeks OR use so much colored ink (which is often paid for by teachers!)...so these Math Bags are good to use for 9 weeks AND can be made with just a black and white printer / copy machine and colored card stock!
What are Math Bags?
Basically, Math Bags are 10 math activities that can be done independently. We try to hit each strand within each set of Math Bags. Each Math Bag is designed so that it can be done by one student or in a pair of students. We want the Math Bags to be engaging but also at a skill level where students can work independently. The instruction pages were made in a kid friendly way (there are both words and pictures).
