1. Seuss Inspired Addition – Based on the Book One Fish, Two Fish… this activity is perfect for students to practice creating their own addition stories. Students can draw the fish in the fish bowl template and add their equation to the bottom. Wouldn’t this be fun with Swedish fish too.. if only they made blue fish too. Ha! {Free download}

2. What Makes 10 and 2D/3D Shapes – Building up number sense and working on subitizing using organized structures is a great way to get in some addition practice. This definitely fits in the Kindergarten Common Core standards and adding in the equations is a perfect extension. Jennifer also throws in a fun 2D/3D shape write the room activity. What a bonus! {Free download}

3. Seusstacular Roll and Cover – The name of this game says it all. This was one of the first “roll & ___” games I ever downloaded. I am convinced that fun ways to practice addition and subtraction like this one really help students develop stronger math skills and they love it too. {Free download} {Bonus – directions}

4. A Cat with A Hat and Friends Math Centers – Finding the missing addends can be a very difficult skill. But we are teaching this beginning in Kindergarten along with the Common Core standards on up, so this first grade game using cards is an inspired way to get in some independent practice during math centers. {Free download}

5. Fraction Stories – These bilingual (yep… they are in English too) pages are the perfect backdrop to creating fraction stories for students to solve. Inspired just as the kindergarten version above, by One Fish, Two Fish… you’ll love the way Krista has students solving each other’s fractions stories and making them reusable. Genius! {Free download}

6. Seussical Math Problem Solving – You’re going to fall in love with Jivey and her desire to make learning fun for older grades. Here is a great example of how she brings a Seuss-inspired set of problem solving situations into her classroom. Doesn’t even just bringing in characters make this more fun and appealing? I think so! {Free download}
