Due to the needs of my class this year I created two new math tubs. Both have a bug theme as we are launching into a nine week cross curricular unit on bugs. Oh what creepy crawly fun! But even if you are not into bugs, these fun math tubs should be engaging for your students with their buggy graphics. I created these math tubs to help my class with ten frames, number recognition, number writing, and counting up or beginning addition concepts. My goal is to take them in slowly and build on a solid foundation of number sense!
The first math tub I created is called Ladybug Ten Frames. Click the picture to check it out at Teacher’s Notebook
Then I noticed that some of my students needed to have a more solid understanding of counting up so I made a math tub called One More Bug. This math tub is designed to help students begin understanding addition by counting up and adding one more bug to a group of bugs. I included a recording sheet for more practice and accountability.

I love your idea about using bugs to teach math. There are a lot of connections you can make with it. I love the graphing! I graph a lot in my classroom too. If you would please take the time to enter my giveaway, I would appreciate it! Thanks

Yes bugs really are an easy theme to apply to every subject area. The first graders LOVE them!! But…I didn't put any graphing in any of the items above. Not sure what you are referring to.

Math Tubs like to use of Kids or children to learn basic mathematics. Kids are build the base of maths in very small Age. The brain is sharp from the mathematics and concentration also.
