Summer Math Crafts for First Grade

Math, summer

The end of the school year is nearing and what better way to target first grade math skills review than incorporating easy-to-prep, FUN math craftivities. Students enjoy cutting, pasting and matching to create unique projects that can be easily differentiated to meet the needs of all learners in your classroom. Math craftivities are visually appealing, and make instant eye-catching bulletin board displays. Check out some more below, and score a *freebie* while you’re here!

Sweet, Sweet Addends
Students will compose 3 addends that make their special number that is on their straw. Numbers are within 21. This can be easily differentiated by having students find two numbers instead of three. Throw in some real lemonade to beat the heat towards the end of the school year!
Beach Ball Number Sense
Students will automatically add and subtract with their knowledge of base ten. Need to differentiate? We have you covered! There are different number options up to 120 and offer a hundreds chart to students that need it. 
Broken Up Sun
Could there be a better way to review fractions than working with a vibrant summer sun? Students will write fractions for each part of the sun. Multiple suns are included to easily differentiate. 
Word Problem Watermelons
These word problems include addition, subtraction and missing addends. Make these watermelons look even more delicious by printing them on astrobrights paper and display in the hallway or on your favorite bulletin board 🙂
