Feed the Penguin:
Roll two dice, represent the two numbers rolled with goldfish crackers (any math manipulative would work if you don't have crackers) in the "part" boxes on the Penguin Part-Part- Whole mat and then move all goldfish to the penguin's tummy to "feed the penguin" and find the total.
Draw a Snowflake Domino Card, find the total number of snowflakes on the card and place it on the correct Snowman Mat based on the total.
Polar Bear Make 10 Match:
Flip over two Polar Bear Number cards. If they make 10, record the match on the recording tool provided. Use math manipulatives if needed to add the two numbers together to see if they make 10. Try to find all the ways to make 10!
Choose a Hat and Mitten Number Mat. Find the missing mitten needed to make 10. Record the missing mitten on the recording tool. Repeat with all the Hat and Mitten Number Mats.
Snowball Number Bonds:
Draw a Snowman Number Card and place the number of "snowballs" (cotton balls or math manipulatives) on the "whole" circle. Break the "snowballs" into the two "part" circles. Record the whole and two parts on the recording tool. Before moving on, try to break the "snowballs" up into two different groups.
Penguin 10 Frames:
Choose a Penguin 10 Frame Mat. Find two Penguin 10 Frame cards that make the number on the mat. Record the numbers on the recording tool. Try to find two new Penguin 10 Frame Cards that make the number before moving on.
