Happy first-day-back-to-school! At least for all us that aren't snowed out! I'm lucky because our first day back after Christmas break is always a teacher prep day. The administrators are realistic..they know that we would not be prepared AT ALL to teach right after break. Are you with me?! I pretty much shoved a whole bunch of stuff in the closet, made sure everything was unplugged and said Sayonara 'till next year!

So with all this SNOWpocalypse stuff that is going on everywhere but here... I figured we'd get into the groove tomorrow in math with a little snowball fight! We've all been in those workshops where they make you write {whatever it is} on a piece of paper, crumple it up, and throw it and then find someone elses, etc. I did this with my kids last year after reading Jill's post and they seriously were BEGGING me to have a snowball fight up until May!
We're hitting numbers 15-20 hard after the break, so I just wrote down numbers in the teens so we can practice building sets, comparing, and one more/ one less. I made a recording sheet to go with them {we probably won't use it until the second time we have the snowball fight}.

I'd love to hear if you snag it up! 
Have a fabulous Tuesday...if you're not snowed in again! ;)



  1. Too cute! We probably go back tomorrow. They cancelled our teacher inservice for today! This will be perfect for the back to school day! Thanks, love your ideas!

  2. This looks SO fun! I can't wait to try it out! Thanks for sharing with us! :)

  3. I love this! Even though I am one of those that got a lot of snow I plan on using this. We are never allowed to actually go out and play in the snow. What a fun way to bring it inside. Thanks!

  4. This looks like so much fun! Students return tomorrow and they will enjoy this as we will be inside all day due to the cold. Thanks!

  5. Thanks for sharing! Could be great to do on a day we can't send the kids out to play in the snow!

  6. This is adorable, I can't wait to try it with the kids. Thanks so much!!

  7. So cute! You are so lucky that you get a teacher prep day when returning from break!

  10. Thanks for the recording sheet. I've had snowball fights before for sight words and number identification, but this add a new element.

  11. Oh! Snow, snow, and MORE snow! And don't get me started on our FRIGID temps! Texas sounds blissful right about now!!
    Love this fun recording sheet!!
