Winter is certainly making its presence known up here in Northern Michigan and it’s time to pull out all those winter themed activities! Many of my first grade friends are learning and practicing addition and subtraction so I thought it would be fun to create a few activities involving fact families and number bonds. I’m not a big fan of worksheets and love activities that can be used over and over again. When you laminate the activities students can use a dry erase marker and, when done, simply wipe clean and the activity will be ready for the next time.
When you download the Penguin Fact Family activity you’ll receive 39 penguins with facts to 20. Be sure to differentiate the activity by choosing which fact families to use.
Using number bonds helps students understand the concept of part/whole. This activity contains bonds up to 20. Again, just laminate and use over and over again!
