Happy spring sweet friends! I hope you are all enjoying this time in your classrooms! One of my favorite things about spring is decorating our classroom with fun, bright crafts. I worked on updating my favorite math craft and I’m so excited to share the new and improved math flowers with you!
Last year, we decorated our classroom with these math flowers, but I wanted to add a little more this year! Instead of just filling the petals with equations, we can show the number in 6 different ways! Your can students can choose a number 1-10 or a teen number 11-20 and fill in each petal. Your students will show the number as a:
- number word
- ten frame
- addition sentence
- subtraction sentence
- tally marks
- and place value!
There are two flower templates included, one for numbers 1-10 and one for numbers 11-20. You can copy them on colored paper or have your students color the flowers in. To make the middle circle pop, copy them onto different colored paper and glue them onto the flower.
Your students can fill in the flower petals to represent each number, cut them out, and glue down the stem and leaves. This makes a fun, spring project!
