Are your students more engaged when working with hands-on manipulatives during literacy and math stations? Mine sure do... especially this time of year. Well, now it is time to dig out the sidewalk chalk, hula-hoops and BINGO daubers! I even get excited about going outside to use sidewalk chalk!!
Here are some ideas of how you can use some of these easy to find products with your students.
Sidewalk Chalk- Take your students outside to write word wall words, sight words, sentences, practice letter formation, and even math facts. Students of all ages can practice math facts using sidewalk chalk.
Hula Hoops- Use hula hoops to create Venn diagrams, compare shapes, compare and contrasts animals or another topic, or sort items that are alike or different. I even use hula-hoops in math. Students can use them to add two or more groups together.
BINGO Daubers- now here is the part I am most excited about. I have created the following Daubers Mega Pack to use at literacy and math stations.
Do you have buckets of BINGO daubers stored somewhere in a cabinet in your classroom? Are you looking to put them to use with engaging hands-on learning? Just look at how many my colleague, Stephany, has in her first grade classroom!
All you have to do is put them in a cute bucket like you see pictured below. Then print the printables from the Daubers Pack.
Look at the previews below for the skills that are included in this pack.
If you are thinking about purchasing this pack, just wait... I am going to give it away to three followers who comment below. All you have to do is comment with your email address and how you plan to use this in your classroom.
