With January upon us, we are doing some wishful thinking for snow, or at least some fun snow themed learning activities!
But we aren’t quite done with Christmas yet, as all of the bloggers at The Elementary Entourage are excited to bring you some fabulous freebies to make your planning time a little easier!
This snowman addition game is a fun way to get kids adding and building up their fact fluency. Plus, you don’t need many supplies!

- The Snowman Spin addition game (below)
- Dry erase pockets (to put in a center for repeated use and save paper)
We played this game in small groups during math workshop, and it was a hit!
First, take a pencil and a paperclip to make a spinner. Flick the paperclip to spin the first spinner. Then do the same for the second spinner.
Add the two numbers together and color a mitten with the sum! There is also a number line included for support.
To keep the fun going without the extra use of paper, stick the game in a dry erase pocket and use gems or other manipulatives to cover the answers!
