He had two geoboards, three rubber bands and a stack of shape cards. His favorite game was to create a shape on the board and have mommy identify. The good news is that I got a nice refresher on all of those odd shapes. I had this out for two weeks and he noticed it was missing this afternoon. That is a success at my house.
My first grader has been working on number bonds and addition facts. I originally saw this idea on pinterest. I gave him a card with 12 written in the middle and he had to come up with four ways to make 12. He seemed to be much more more interested once the cheerios came out. We have practiced with the number 6-12. Fun, easy, simple.
