No More Ice Cream

I need NEW ideas...

I want to know --or SEE-- what you all use as students learn their multiplications. I have used ice cream scoops and also ice cream sundaes for the facts learned.

I what something DIFFERENT!

Do any of you use something else? Could I hear about it and SEE it?

Thanks a bunch!

I was actually thinking of doing pizzas at the beginning of the year for addition facts.

1's=plate
2's=napkin
5's=glass
10's= pop
11's= crust
etc. with sauce, pepperoni, whatever

Then at the end having a pizza party. Just a change of pace

Taco Party

Some time ago, I remember seeing a Multiplication Taco Party idea in a Mailbox Magazine. I don't remember the exact plan, but it it's the same basic idea as the ice cream/pizza ideas.

Plate
Napkin
Taco Shell
Ground meat
Cheese
Lettuce
Tomatoes
Sour Cream
etc.

Our school does the pizza. Everyone has a round crust and they add something to the effect of:

1 mushroom for 1's
2 peppers for 2's
3 pinapples for 3's

etc.

The 10's are 10 pieces of cheese. They usually earn those as one of their first ones since they're easy.

How about sports cut outs and an extra recess when they complete? We have a wellness plan too. Extra physical activity time should pass muster. Hope it helps.

I have seen 12 piece puzzles for each student (old magazine photos) they earn a piece for each level. Each student has an enevelope with their name on the outside and 12 pieces inside. The teacher keeps these. Each student is trying to figure out what their picture is. This takes up a good amount of space when the puzzles are finished.

one thing if you have wellness plan each child could have a banana tree. learn the first set you get the tree afterwards you add a banana for year set. Title " Bunches of Numbers" Then when the child has learned all tables they get a monkey by the tree.

Multiplication ideas
Old 07-06-2007, 01:29 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #9

I have done multiplication licenses and multiplication passports. I made the licenses similiar to drivers licenses with picture and student info. At the bottom, I put the numbers 1-12. I laminated each card and as the students learned each table, I covered the number of the corresponding times table with a small star sticker. When all 12 were covered the student received their 'license to multiply'. For the passports, I modeled them after real passports and made a page for each times table. As the student learned each table, we stamped the date and a word (unfortunately, I can't remember what it was, passed, cancelled, something like that) on the corresponding page in the passport. Both went over well with the kids. A student who graduated this year told me she still has her license. (I have done the multiplication sundaes for the last few years, but I'm getting tired of them too.)

Boucing off of what Michaela said about passports. Could you do a world map showing ___ places to travel ( Paris, England,etc .... the number of tables to be learned. ) Either have everyone start off in New York or have the girls in New York and the boys leaving San Fransico or Leave from various places. Then do the passport idea but as the child "travels to a new place have a way to " pin Point" it on the board. That way Suzie can say "I travel to Paris tomorrow I am going to Rome". Really all you would need is a large world size map or blow up a general outline of one with your special places.
"YOU talking about kids learning map skills, iintergrating subject matter." You could even have some time of securtiy check point to make sure they understand the procedures of air travel etc. Good LUCK

Thanks, everyone! I love all the ideas!!! Now I need to make my mind up between the taco, pizza, sports, bananas, and puzzle. They were all so great!

Michaela, thanks for the license reminder, I haven't made those in years!

For something healthy you could have them earn different fruits (and/or vegetables) when they learn a new group of facts. They could end up with a fruit salad - apples, mandarin oranges, peaches, grapes, strawberries, cherries, etc.

If you're thinking about doing puzzle pieces, how about making puzzles of each student's face? Kids love pictures of themselves!

Planets

We used a bulletin board with the planets, the sun, and I think a comet or two. Each had a number under it. The kids were given a small rocket ship to decorate and put their name on. When they mastered a number, they got to move their rocket ship. The kids loved it, and they learned the planets in the process. At the end, they got to visit our Tresure Chest.
