On to other things ... here are two math activities that I have used with my first graders. The first is a set of money activities. It includes:
- tree map sort of all 4 American coins
- Do I have enough money? activity (uses pennies, nickels, and dimes)
- count coins in a set and write the total (uses pennies, nickels, and dimes)
- a "shopping activity" using pennies, nickels, and dimes
The second activity is for a tree map of geometric shapes. Use this geometry sort to check students' understanding of shapes in real life. Uses triangles, square, rectangles, and circles. This freebie can also be found at my TpT store.
Hope that you can stay cool!
