This mental math resource has daffodil and domino graphics. Using dominoes is a fun way for little learners to practice subitizing.  Subitizing is a fundamental mathematical skill that builds a strong foundation for development of number sense. I have selected domino graphics with groupings of five to represent the quantities to help build an understanding of place value.

This resource is special to me because daffodils, or jonquils as they are called by many country people, remind me of my late grandmother.  She was well known in our little rural community for her love of jonquils.  Everyone knew who lived in the big old yellow house with yellow jonquils in the yard and a yellow Volkswagen Beetle ® in the garage.

Spring Numerals to 20 FREEBIE 4 cards vertical camper watermark copy

These clip cards address Counting and Cardinality Standards while offering bonus opportunities for fine motor development. I think this is important in light of the recent findings that many young children enter school with deficits in fine motor development due to excessive screen time on electronic devices.

The answer selections may also be marked with seasonal erasers, pennies, buttons, dry beans, pom-poms, or other household items.

Spring Numerals to 20 FREEBIE 16 Photo Album camper watermark copy

The cards may be placed in a dollar store photo album and used with dry erase markers to create a write and wipe activity. Use an inexpensive black glove or old sock as an eraser.  Old socks work well, but I prefer using a glove.  Kids love using a glove, too.  I like that putting the glove on gives little learners an additional opportunity for motor development.  In many areas of the country children have little experience with gloves.  Using the gloves allows little learners in warmer climates an opportunity to learn to put on gloves.

Fiesta Navidad at Epcot: Las Posadas

Mariachi band at Epcot 12-15 cropped and watermarked copyMariachi Cobre at Epcot

I love Christmas at Epcot.  Mariachi Cobre and their accompanying dancers are absolutely amazing at anytime of the year.  Their special Christmas performance for Fiesta Navidad and Los Posadas show is a treat indeed.  It is entertaining and educational.  Children and adults alike enjoy the music and learn about the tradition of Las Posadas, the piñata, and the legend of the poinsettia.  The festive garments worn by the dancers are beautiful.  I enjoy when they invite guest children to participate in their Las Posadas re-enactment.  They conclude with a rousing rendition of Feliz Navidad inviting the guests to participate.

 

Here are some books about Las Posadas you may enjoy sharing with your little learners.  (Affiliate links are provided for your convenience. )

 

Feliz Navidad!

I recently observed my 5th Tpt-Versary.  Many things have happened in my life since I began my Teachers Pay Teachers Journey. Many of you are close to me and know that some of these events have been wonderful, some have been life-altering, and some have been heartbreaking. Through it all, I have been blessed by your support, feedback, and purchases.

Thank you for the support you have shown me over the years. Because of you, I have enjoyed this amazing journey over the past 5 years. I am thankful for all of you and want to offer a FREEBIE to show my appreciation.

This versatile number sense resource offers your little learners a variety of fun and engaging ways to practice numerals to 20. The apple themed cards can be used as matching tasks or as ordering tasks. These mental math activities may be used at any time during the year, but also complement autumn/fall, school, farm, harvest, Back to School, or Johnny Appleseed themes. They are a great follow up activity for a farm, cider mill, or apple orchard field trip.

I blogged at the Primary Peach about one of the most respected bridge builders of the south in the 19th century.  I have always been fascinated by Horace King’s accomplishments and thoroughly enjoyed researching about his life and his works.
