Math Practice Plates

Serve up a helping of math! Use plastic plates and Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons to practice math facts with your students.

  • Grade 1
    Grade 2
    Grade 3
  • 30 Minutes or Less
  • Directions

    1. Plastic plates are a great alternative surface for Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons if no individual white boards are available. For this lesson, provide each student with a large, white plastic plate, a tissue and Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons.
    2. Practice math facts using Dry-Erase Crayons to write a number sentence. Students draw pictures of food on their plates to match the number sentence and then write the answer. Take an added step and label the answer using words.
    3. Simply wipe off the plate with the E-Z Erase Mitt or a handy tissue and serve up another helping of math.
  • Standards

    LA: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions with diverse partners on grade level topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly.

    MATH: Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.

    MATH: Add and subtract within 20.

    VA: Use the visual structures of art to communicate ideas.

  • Adaptations

    Ask students to work in pairs to practice their basic addition and subtraction facts. Have students draw the number pictures and then trade with a partner to write the number and solve.

    Students demonstrate the concept of same and different by drawing a number picture on the board and having students draw the same picture on their plates, then writing the number expression on the plates. Students should also provide a solution for their number expression.
