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 this “flip up” New Year craft.
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 _________. The president now is ________.”
If you think your students will need more room, or you want to do this as a separate, writing block activity. I’ve also included 5 writing prompt worksheet options.
For additional 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.
