The Crawfords' Big Book of Math-tivities
The Crawfords have developed hundreds of brand-new Math-tivities that combine math instruction with arts and crafts, games, puzzles, and outdoor play to make math the most fun part of the day! All the Math-tivities are aligned with specific Common Core Standards for grades K to 2 so teachers can track their students' progress toward mastering each Standard.
Math-tivities includes a wealth of printable activities for students including: Mathbooking, a new combination of math journals + scrapbooking; Math Glyphs, where students answer math questions to create a personal work of art; Math and Tell, which combines storytelling with math word problems; Math Games and Puzzles, brand-new math games to entertain students while they learn; Taking Math Outside, which uses the great outdoors as your new location for math class; Holiday Math, which showcases special seasons of the year for innovative math instruction.
Many of the Math-tivities provide opportunities for integrated and differentiated instruction to allow teachers to combine subject matter as well as pinpoint each student's individual needs. And the charming Math-tivities characters will delight young students as they learn math skills! Math-tivities is designed for teachers who want to enliven their approach to math, and it is perfect for homeschoolers with its wide variety of new printable activities.
Math-tivities makes math fun!
“Math-tivities makes math crazy fun! But watch out! Your students will be begging you to do math and begging their parents to do math on the weekend!”
Kimberley Arbouw, Teacher, Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 3, Roanoke, Virginia
"I adore the Math-tivities book! It is my new go-to book. I love that I can use it on the computer or print a copy of an activity for my students.
The activities in it are great for warm ups, review, R.T.I., and sub plans.”
Michelle Divkey, Teacher, Kindergarten, California
“Brian and Yvonne Crawford have a dynamic way of approaching math. Their activities are versatile enough to challenge fast learners, while the readability of their word problems doesn't inhibit the students that lack a strong reading and vocabulary background. The lessons are rigorous, but still entertaining, which is a big plus in this era of digital gimmicks. Their activities meet CCSS standards while allowing me to differentiate to fit the needs and learning styles of the students in my classroom”
Jennifer Ayers, Teacher, Grade 2, Chattanooga, Tennessee
