A Shark Week FREEBIE!

All teachers know that kids learn more when they’re excited and engaged. Today a team of bloggers come together to help your students take a BITE out of learning with a theme your students are sure to love!

One way I love to keep my kids engaged in the first grade classroom is to keep things competitive and group-oriented. We all know how those first grade attention spans can wane!

My Shark Week freebie is an old-school game of cat & mouse. Sharks & Minnows is a nostalgic pool game that pits predator against prey. What better way to celebrate Shark Week than to bring this game into the classroom! Students will race from one end of the sea to the other, answering math facts in order to escape the hungry jaws that chase them!

Be sure to go for a swim in the linky party below. Every blog in the Shark Week Blog Hop features a fishy freebie for you and your students- but hurry! Shark Week only lasts until Sunday, August 17th  : )

  1. Oh, I can tell already that my kids would LOVE this game! Adding the "Sharks and Minnows" touch to a math game will absolutely make it something they want to play over and over again (which means they may actually learn their math facts!). Thank you so much for such a creative freebie and for linking up with me this week! :)
