Workshop Wednesday: Seasonal Math Workshop - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Workshop Wednesday: Seasonal Math Workshop

Welcome to Workshop Wednesday in DECEMBER. Holy cow! How did it get to be the end of the year already? Today, we are linking up the ways we make our Math Workshop fit in with the season and/or the holidays. I have quite a few ideas up my sleeve for the next two and a half weeks in math! :o)

PS- Next week for Workshop Wednesday, we'll share seasonal reading ideas, and then the NEXT week will be seasonal writing ideas! Get ready to link up every week!! :)

Before I share about math though, I have to share some SUPER exciting news!! The 2013 Winter Holidays Tips and Freebies book is LIVE- and it's FREE!! :) It is full of awesome tips and freebies that I know you will love- including one from me! ;-)

Now, back to Workshop Wednesday... :o) (Of course, there are a bunch of seasonal fun math activities in the e-book!)

Check out this fun freebie from Mr. Peterson!
This will be going in my multiplication review station... they are going to love it!!

I am also excited to try some activities in the Math and Literacy Pack from Mandy Neal:
At this point in the year, we've learned so many skills that need to be reviewed to keep them "fresh" that this pack will be great for doing just that in my stations. (And shhhh! There are literacy goodies in there, too!!!)

And of course, we've already started on my Let It Snow Pack!

My kids literally CHEERED when I told them they were going to get to create a snowman yesterday to review fractions. LOL! And look how adorably creative they got!


  1. That multiplication freebie looks great! Thank you for sharing it!


  2. Lots of great ideas! Love that snowman glyph-cute!

  3. So many awesome ideas! Love that the holidays up the engagement level of our kiddos simply because anything with snowman, santa, or winter is THAT much more exciting!! :) Thanks for hosting!

  4. Ok, so all of these math activities are really making me miss teaching math. :( You have some great ones here that I hadn't heard of. I know I will be teaching math again someday...:)

  6. I used that same Math Mystery from Mr. Peterson with a student who needs to practice basic multiplication! I love it! I might also have to check out this Snow Pack you have because we are doing fractions in 5th as well! Happy Holidays!

  7. I have not done glyphs with my students but your snowman one looks so cute I may just have to fit that it. Thanks for the link to the Math Mystery pictures. Sorry I am late (chronically) to your party - but thanks for hosting such a great party each week!


Thank you so much for stopping by! Please, leave me some love! :)
