I just uploaded
an oral math problems set to my TPT store. (click on the picture to get
to it). There you can find oral activities to practice arithhmetics with
your kindergarteners. There are sequencing problems with sequencing
cards, questions where the answer is included in the question, questions
that are unable to be resolved with the information given and
I use them twice a week with my students to practice math concepts orally as required in the spanish kindergarten standards.
I hope you find them useful.
In this last picture you can see me and my spanish co-teacher Asun, She is the one behind the chest.
FLETCHER AND THE LEAVES: The students favorite part was when the tree lost all its leaves and it turned blue because of the cold weather: look at the adorable drawings.
ONE WINDY WEDNESDAY:
This story is sooo fun, the kids enjoyed it very much and did amazing drawings. See one example
RUSSELL THE SHEEP:
This is an amazing story sooooo amusing. Russell is a sheep that can't sleep and tries to do everything he can think of to fall asleep. We discuss what we do when we can't sleep and kids made a drawing of their favourite part.
This are our apple related math activities: First kids did sums and number recognition
In order to practice our spacial and temporal knowledge we sequence this apple.
We learned about the life cycle of an apple tree and then the kids color and complete the sequence.
and now we have to get ready for Christmas time. I am sooooo excited!!
EXPERIMENT: AN APPLE INVESTIGATION ( I can't find the blog where i got this great idea)
In small groups kids analyze a real apple seeing all its parts and completing a simple worksheet. They loved this activity specially the apple print part :)
TEN APPLES UP ON TOP.
My students loooooved the story 10 apples up on top by Dr. Seuss. After reading it we created our class book: I gave each kid a card with one number and they had to cut and glue the appropriate number of apples on top of them,complete the sentence and draw themselves. Some of the drawings are simply amazing.
WHAT APPLE TASTES BEST?
We graph our favourite apples by giving each kid an apple to color and then place on the chart to later on analyze it.
AN APPLE INVESTIGATION( I can't find the blog where i got this great idea) Kids completed this activity describing apples.

We started our apples week by talking about where apples and other fruits and vegetables grow. On the board we drew fruit and vegetables according to where we think they grow to then complete a simple worksheet by coloring cutting and gluing accordingly.
Using a poster we learned the parts of an apple to then label our apples.
We studied Giusseppe Arcimboldo and specially his work AUTUMN. We learned things about him, his life and work.
We then created our own autumn scenes and an interpretation of the author.
