Spring Carrot Shakers for Division FREEBIE

Welcome to our Freebie Spring Blog Hop!  You can hop along between our blogs, and pick up a freebie along the way!  Thank you for coming from Learning with Mrs. Leeby!

I am really trying to get creative with practicing division in our class.  Surprisingly, it is going smoother than when I taught 4 digit multiplication, so that's a good thing!  I saw cute carrot "Easter eggs" at the Dollar Tree, and I thought of a fun way to use them while practicing division! 

The first thing I did was write numbers on cardstock that I would put inside my carrot.  I used 4 digit numbers that they could use to divide. 

I filled the carrot with Perler Beads and a pipe cleaner (it is always fun to use pom poms!) 

The name of the game is the students shook the carrot and looked through it to find a number (the divisor), they rolled the dice (the dividend), then they wrote the problem on the recording sheet and solved!

If you wanted to do this for primary, you could fill the carrots with letters, numbers, addition problems...anything!  Here is the recording sheet for FREE!

  7. Thanks for this super cute idea. I am going to use it with my kinder-bears for mixed up CVC words and tally mark recognition. Thank you!

  8. I love the carrots from the Dollar Tree! In my 4K class I have them with the number at the top of the carrot, corresponding dots at the bottom (for counting checks) and the students get to fill the carrots with the correct number of jelly beans (great test for self-control) to match the numbers up to 20. It is a great way for them to practice number recognition and one to one counting skills.

  9. Darling idea, Michelle! Thank you!!!
