### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A fun Math unit for 1st grade. You can use these as math centers. There are a lot of print and go activities included.
A variety of differentiated materials - each can be used at least in two ways - ideas are included. {look at the PREVIEW for some}

Here's what you get:

1. Base ten cards. (8 pages)
10s are represented by snowballs. 1s by single snowflakes. These can be used to play memory or children can cut and paste them to match.
2. Base ten worksheets. (7 pages)

Use as regular worksheets. Children write the numbers represented by the snowballs and snowflakes.
Use as cut and paste activity. Number and greater/less sign cards are included.

Use as hands-on activity. Make a greater/less sighs by the bendy end of snowflakes (see the picture previews) or by pipe cleaners.
3. Rhyming addition problem. (16 task cards + recording sheets and 3 sizes of snowflakes)
Students read the rhymes and solve the problems.
This can be done as a group activity. Print big snowflakes. Read the problem together. Students think about how to solve it.
What we did was either put down the final number of snowflakes then cover or remove the starting number. Thus they “Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem.” (1.OA.4)
Or students can do this as hands-on activity by themselves by cutting and pasting corresponding number of snowflakes.
Here included are 3 different styles of recording sheets as well as 3 different sizes snowflakes.
4. Which is my cloud (12 pages)
Match different problems (the snowflakes) to the correct answer (the cloud).
You can use this as regular worksheets or laminate and use board markers.
5. Measure with snowflakes. (11 pages)
This can be a really fun activity.
Students measure the pictures and record their height. This can be done by cutting the measuring tape and pasting it or cutting and pasting single snowflakes (the latter is a great fine motor skills activity but takes a lot of time).
Another way you can use this idea is to measure things around the room and record what you have measured. Students need to make the measuring tape fist which by itself is a nice practice with the number line.
6. Snowflake shapes (2 pages)
These are two worksheet on which students connect snowflakes to make shapes.
