Guest Blogger - Mitten Friend, Kimberly from Funky First Grade Fun!!!

My name is Kimberly. I feel honored and super excited that Holly asked me to do a guest post on her blog! I've been a follower/fan/stalker of Holly's blog for a long time. Recently, we discovered that we both live in Michigan. At the end of July, I had the pleasure of meeting Holly (and Barb) at the Michigan Blogger Meet Up.

This summer, I've done some thinking (more like rethinking) about math work stations. You can read my post (Revisiting Math Work Stations) for some information about why I felt like I needed to rethink the whole math work station thing. Perhaps it was just an excuse to buy more containers. Although, I'm pretty sure I already own enough Rubbermaid to build a small island in the ocean. Oy...

Today, I'd like to share a game that my students play during math work stations. It's actually two different games. The forms that I'm including are for a Lego Addition work station and Lego Subtraction work station. You can click on the picture below to download it if you'd like your own copy.

My students use 1 die at the beginning of the year and 2 dice to give them a challenge when they are ready. I bought these adorable Lego cups (instead of the bags for the legos at each work stations) for extra fun.  I found them at a local party supply store.

Thank you so much for reading my guest post! A special thanks to Holly for inviting me to visit.  I hope you'll stop by to visit my blog sometime soon.
