We're Batty for Bats!!



We think bats are...


What a fun way to kick off your lesson plan unit on bats! You can take a poll of how many students think bats are cute, and how many think they are creepy. The students can then fill out their math graph and tally data summary worksheet.

This math activity works great with my opinion writing worksheet, "I think bats are". The students can write their opinion on bats during Writer's Workshop, and then draw a picture to go with their writing.

SO... do we think bats are creepy or cute? Let's tally and graph to see!
Creepy = 9      Cute = 8

Our class thinks bats are CREEPY!

It's time for some Alien Addition!


We are having fun in Math Centers counting aliens! I made this activity to help our kindergarten class learn about addition. This is a great way to teach and reinforce addition. It can be used for morning work, busy work, or it can be laminated and used in your Math Centers with dry erase markers. The alien theme makes this activity a fun way to learn addition, and it is perfectly aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

MACC.K.OA.1.1 - Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.


There are 10 different alien themed worksheets, and a cover sign for your math center. If you would like to download this fun alien addition activity, please visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
