Mathmania and Valentines Day

February 14th was Valentines Day and Mathmania day here at Wilbur Elementary.

Pete The Cat

In my class we did a lesson on graphing for Mathmania. We first read the story Pete The Cat I Love My White Shoes. Students LOVED this book and were singing the song from the story all day long! After reading the story students made their own Pete the Cat but were able o pick their own color shoes for their cat. Once students were finished creating their cat they came to the carpet and we graphed what color shoes each student chose. The activity went really well and the cats came out very cute.

For Mathmania students also got to do activities with the other kindergarten teachers on the Green/Yellow side of the building. The activities were very cute, and the kids loved the one Ms. Maloy did the most. They had to count 10's units in a ten-frame and then race back to their group in a mini car made from a box to give their answer! Adorable.

Hearts, Candy, Friendship, and Valentines!

The Valentine containers that students made for their family project were just adorable and very creative. Here are pictures of some of them.

We also did a candy heart graphing activity. At the beginning of the year students had a very hard time with this kind of activity. However, this time students ROCKED this activity!

Thank you very much for all the help, time, money, and creativeness families put into this month's project!
