Mush On!

Are you getting ready to follow the Last Great Race?  The Iditarod begins March 1, 2014.  Each year I look forward to this time so not only can we follow the mushers' progress on the trail each day but I like to use the Iditarod as an excuse to tie in some math problem solving (Musher Math) and much needed review with capitalization, spelling, and punctuation (Musher Language).

New Materials Added 2/9/14   93 pages of materials!

The set has 2 weeks (10 class days) of daily Musher Math and Musher Language activities that students will complete.  Each day's lesson is in printable PDF format and ALSO in SMART Board format.  The SMART Board file included is 40 pages and interactive for students to write answers each day. 

Students will also make a special desk name tag with place marker to move as their musher travels the trail each day.   I added a set of dogs and dogs sled for students to color for their nametag. 

A special website link is provided in the set giving you and your students direct access to Iditarod statistics and other Iditarod sites appropriate for your students.  

Students eagerly dig in and work on the math and language activities when you make it fun!

25 days and counting down to March 1!
