Happy New Year everyone! It's hard to believe it's 2012. What's even harder to believe is that my vacation is over. It's been so relaxing! But I'm a little excited to see all my little cuties. I'm sure they will be high as kites.
I've been working on a few things and here is a freebie for all who could use it.
My kiddos absolutely love the bump game. So here's one for them using subtraction. We need a lot of work with subtraction. I use 2 number cubes. A larger one in size is numbered 7-12, the other smaller 1-6. They roll, then subtract the larger number from the smaller one. They find the number on the game board and cover it with a cube. They take turns with a partner. If the partner rolls the same answer they can BUMP the other person's cube off and replace it with theirs. If you roll the same answer and you already have a cube there, you snap a second cube on top and claim the spot so your partner can't bump you off. Play until all the numbers are claimed. The player with the most numbers claimed wins.

The second freebie is a money sort mat. We are diving in to work on money so I made a sorting mat. The kiddos grab a hand full of coins (fake of course) and sort them. I am going to have them graph the coins as well but I've still got to make that recording sheet. Click on the picture for a download.
