My students absolutely love making sliders. I call them that because children “slide” a strip of paper through a “window” in a themed-graphic, to practice a variety of standards
Sliders are also a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess
, whatever we’re currently working on.
Because of my students’ enthusiasm
and their success
at learning these concepts, I designed 5 different, Thanksgiving-themed
slider patterns, in two sizes.
You can make more than one because there are also a variety of slider strips to choose from, which will help practice:
* upper & lowercase letters
* counting & number recognition 1-10
, as well as 1-30
* skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, & 10’s
, as well as
* counting backwards
from 10-0 and 20-0.
* The 2D shape slider
reinforces the standard shapes: circle, oval, triangle, rectangle, square, & hexagon
; as well as “add-on” options with a: pentagon, octagon, rhombus, trapezoid, star, & heart
* Besides the sliders, the packet also includes a 10-frame spinner or dice game
, and several 10-frame
matching games, which come in color for an independent center, as well as black & white, so students can make their own games
to continue practicing at home.
* I’ve also included 10-frame cards, with matching manipulatives, so students can practice simple addition & subtraction
* Children can use the mini number, & math symbol
tiles, to make equations
and practice greater & less than
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy this packet as much as mine.
Wishing you a fun-tactic fall.
