Penguin Math

We are studying penguins this week...one of my favorite units all year!  Here's our math centers and a fun little math "art-tivity".  You can find these centers (plus lots more) in my Playful Penguin Unit over at my tpt shop.









Literacy centers to come later this week!  
And, I just posted my Happy Hearts Valentines Unit on tpt if you want to check it out.  
Thanks, as always, for reading my blog.  I'll give my new Penguin Unit to one random person that comments on this post.  Be sure to leave your e-mail in your comment so you can grab your freebie!  
Good Luck!

  2. Holy buckets, your penguin ideas are cute. We are doing penguins this week, too and my students are obsessed with learning about them. I may have to carry the theme over to next week and try some of these fun math ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love to look at your ideas on your blog. I have purchased several of your units. I teach Pre-K so some of it I have to "tone" down if you know what I mean. This week my kiddos are studying bears-I love your brown bear unit...they are getting lots of color word practice. Thanks again for all of your awesome ideas. Debra @ prekiddo63@gmail.com

  18. Julie your Penguin unit is adorable! I was wondering how the "How Many More" activity works (I can't quite figure it out from the picture). I bet your Valentines unit is just as cute!

    1. Hey Karyn,
      They have to figure out how many more squares/blocks the taller tower has than the shorter tower...they've done really well with it so far. :) Does that make any sense?

And I absolutely love the way that you create your centers- with different colors, coloring in the graphic, and then answer.
