You should read from your book bag for 15 minutes. More is better, if you want to do more!

Give yourself two checks if you earned them!.

Writing Choice

Do your choice board activity for the day.

Click here to see the Choice Board. (You can print it out if you want -- it will be the same all week.)



Go outside for an exercise break!

When you finish, you can do a mindfulness activity if you want to.



Sort your new sort. Have an adult or older sibling check it with you.

Video how-to (for how to check your sort -- note that your child’s sort will not be glued down yet, but loose on the table)



You have two choices. You can play Race to Zero or try an “Activity of the Day.”

Option 1: Activity of the Day

Go to the Activity of the Day link.

Send me a picture or video of your work.

Option 2: Play Race to Zero

This game will help you get really good at subtracting tens. First graders are expected to know how to subtract groups of ten.

Part 1: Get your materials

You will need your ten frames and your bundles of ten. You could also choose to use dimes if you want -- you will need 20 dimes.

You will need a paperclip and a pencil or pen.

You will need your tens spinner from Two Turns to Build. Make a new one if you need to.

Part 2: Play the game

Watch this video to learn how.

Here are written directions. 

One partner will play with ten frames. One partner will play with bundles of ten. (If you want to make or gather more materials so partners can play with the same materials, that is fine. Dimes would also work very well for this game. Most people probably have 20 dimes at home! Then each partner would start with ten dimes.)

Each partner starts with 100. The first partner spins the spinner, takes away that number of objects, and announces his or her number sentence (Example: 100 minus 20 equals 80. Another example: 100 take away 20 is 80. Another example: 10 bundles take away 2 bundles leaves 8 bundles.) The second partner spins the spinner, takes away that number of objects from his own group of 100, and announces his number sentence. (Example: 100 take away 10 is 90.) Partners take turns until one partner reaches 0. The first one to zero wins!

Part 3: Try a challenge if you have time! It’s also okay if it’s time to be done with math for the day.

Challenge 1: Race back from 120!

Challenge 2: Write equations for each turn.

Challenge 3: Invent your own challenge version!

If you want Choice Time on the computer, go to the Wibki.

Closing Circle

Clean up your work area.

In our classroom, we all work together to make sure it’s clean and nice at the end of the day. Is there anything you can do at home to help you like you do in our classroom?
