Fun at the Beach! Math Centers

Well, I guess it took me a week to post my beach math centers! Sorry!!

Here they are!

At this center, the children scooped out shells from the bucket, counted them and tallied the number.


Practicing subtraction!


My kiddos LOVE to play Flip 5 and practice sums to 5.  I made an Ocean theme for them to play at centers.



We also practiced reading the dime with “digital numbers” – this was tricky for some!  But, we’ve been working on time to the hour, half hour, and even quarter after and quarter to during our calendar time!


School is out for me now, but I’m already thinking and planning ahead to next year.  I’ve got a long list of ideas to work on and books to read this summer!

I would love to hear what you would like me to blog about this summer – anything that you’ve been wanting to know just comment below and I’ll try to blog about it this summer!

Here is me and my girls on the last day of school! My oldest will start middle school next year *gasp!* and my youngest just finished Kindergarten.  I love these girls so  much and am looking forward to spending the summer with them!


Yep, we’ll be doing a lot of this this summer!
