We are enjoying the final few rotations of our spring themed Morning Exploring tubs. Besides strengthening fine motor skills, these tubs continue to build both math and language arts concepts.
Students use mini stickers to follow the outline of an umbrella. They then count how many stickers they used.
Students extend the cottontail’s pattern using tweezers.
Students use tweezers to locate raindrops in plastic grass. They then solve the word puzzles each raindrop makes.
Students use a bunny hole punch to illustrate addition equations.
Students dig in therapy putty to remove colored beads, which they sort and graph.
Students choose a number card and place that number of ducks in the pond. They then write the two numbers that come before their chosen number.
Students choose a container and sort the erasers by carrot and bunny. They count the number of each and record that number in the coordinating box, writing an addition equations. Students then solve the equation.
Students create raindrop number bonds.
Students play a game of greater than or less than when they choose a duck, read the two-digit number, spin the spinner, and compare their number to their partner’s number.
