Marching in Kindergarten

It amazes me every year how quickly time flies! It seems just like yesterday we were learning our rules and procedures and now we're becoming so independent. I'm such a proud kindergarten mamma! My lions have truly amazed me this year with all the things they've learned and retained! 

One of our favorite times of the day is math centers. The first half of the year our math time was set up as stations and the kids stayed at their tables. Now, we're making our own activity choices and working independently! I smile every time I look around my room and see my little lions working so hard!  

Here's a peak into our little world...
Simple but effective "Shamrock Subtraction" activity. I simply printed the subtraction cards and laminated them so the kids could use dry erase markers to solve the problems. Then they record the problem and answer on their shamrock sheet. I have no clue why my lions LOVE dry erase markers so much but I'm glad they do!

I'm sure you're wondering..."why on earth did she randomly put a kitten themed graphing activity in her March math centers?" The answer is simple...they're rainbow kittens!!! I don't know about you but when I think of March/St. Patrick's Day I think of rainbows! PS: This is one of my newest TPT creations. There are lots of math activities included this pack!
