** Due to the overwhelming LOVE for math bags, we've decided to branch out into Seasonal Math Bags!! These are great to add into your rotation of our Original Math Bag sets!**
If you are new to Math Bags, 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?
Seasonal Math Bags are 10 seasonal themed math activities that can be done independently. Seasonal Math Bags focus on a small range of objectives. 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).
