Main Idea Bags Activity (Includes 23 Different Bag Themes!)
Dec
31
2012

Save your valuable time and print this ready-to-use main idea activity!  Students infer the main idea by reviewing sets of themed picture cards in bags.

If using as a center/workstation: print out the bag tags, picture cards, and the student directions (in either B&W OR color-you don’t need both) and laminate. Cut out and sort the picture cards into individual bags (brown/white paper bags and/or ziplock baggies work great!) according to the numbers (i.e. all of the 1’s go into the same bag, etc.). Cut out and attach the bag tags to the front of each bag. Print out numerous student copies of the “activity sheet”. Place in center/workstation with the student directions, prepared bags, and pencils. This can also be done as an in-class activity!

*Note: I tried to include a variety of difficulty levels. However, you do not have to use all of the picture cards. If any of them are too easy/too hard for your particular group of students—just discard that particular picture card or set. I have also included blank templates so that you can add your own and/or have your students create additional sets.

Teacher Directions
Student Directions
Bag Tags
Picture Cards
Activity Sheet
Answer Key

Mystery Pictures for Multiplication
Dec

2012

Have students uncover the hidden mystery picture once they have solved a sheet or two of multiplication facts. Some problems have an order of operations twist to them due to the fact that not all numbers 1-100 are not products of basic multiplication facts. Great for multiplication fluency!!!

I also have a Math Mystery Picture pack that includes addition and subtraction problems, expanded form, word form, and place value, for sale in my store if multiplication is too high for your students, as well as for beginning, middle, and ending sounds


Pictures include: flower, boat, tree, Christmas tree, dog, fish, rainbow, flag, and heart.
