I decided to buy some plastic eggs, take a permanent marker, and write down some math facts. On the top part of each egg I wrote down the multiplication statement and at the bottom, the answer (obviously mixing up the colours). Putting them in two baskets, all the students have to do is match the right top with the right bottom. This is great not only to keep students busy and practising their multiplication facts, but also for me to check after for assessment.
Problem is - I bought a bag of 40 eggs. What to do with the rest?
Some ideas I have...
- Write a different journal topic in each egg, and when the students are finished their work they have to pick an egg and write a journal entry.
- Put a little treat in each egg to give to the students for Easter break.
Any other ideas?? :)
