Who's Keeping Score?


Here is another independent activity in math that goes along with our Open Court unit on Teamwork.
My students can't get enough of these and the "score sheet" will let me know who the winners are! OMG I forgot the download. By the way the math downloads are in honor of our book study! Click here for the download! Please leave a comment if you grab this and join me for our book discussion. No excuses...
okay.
Directions for this activity:
1. Run off these images and put sticky dots on each ball. Make these as simple or as difficult as you want.
2. Laminate them .
3. Students add the dots together on matching balls to get a total and record them on a sheet that I have   provided.
Now ... play ball!

You must live in southern california--I'm in Long Beach and we just started our teamwork unit in Open Court as well! My district is also reallly big on thinking maps so I'm learning a TON from you! Thanks. Do you have this ball recording sheet available as a download? I would love to use it next week if so!

Thanks for the great ideas. Do you have everything available as downloads? I also love your brace and bubble maps. Do you have them as a download as well. I would love to join you with your book study this summer.

I love your ideas and was wondering if you had them as a download. I really love your bubble and brace maps. I would also love to follow you this summer with the book study.

This is a great activity! And I can easily adapt it for my second graders next year who will be starting multiplication towards the end of the school year. I'm SO SO excited for the book study - just ordered my copy a few minutes ago! :)

Magnificent Multiagers!

Thanks for sharing!

I've got the book and I can't wait to dig into it! Only teachers want and enjoy "homework" over the summer! Can't wait!

Thank you, Fran! Your generosity is very much appreciated. I have a zero$ budget for my classroom; all extras beyond textbooks fall on me.

I'm starting to plan for next year--school starts on Aug. 15! I can't wait to see how you kick off a school year!

I am happy to provide as many downloads as my time allows. You have been the best people in the world and always have time to say "thanks." I appreciate all of you!

Thanks so much...I can't wait to make this center to have ready for next May. I really enjoy reading your blog and being inspired by you!

Thanks you for the great download! I can't wait to get this made. The kids (especially the boys) will LOVE it! I'm looking forward to the book study. I've already been reading the book and it is absolutely fantastic. I was one of those "geeky" teachers preordered it MONTHS ago in anticipation of getting math workshop up and going in my classroom. Can't wait for everyone's ideas. . .

Wonderful...as always!!! Thanks for sharing! I will definitely be following along on the book study...though my book won't ship until mid-June. :(
