Sunday Spotlight–Gumball Math

Sunday Spotlight

Before we packed up and headed out on Friday for Spring Break there was a LOT of excitement in our first grade classrooms.  Who wouldn’t be excited about a week off of school, right???  As teachers we sure are!!!  But that actually wasn’t what was creating all of the buzz. 

It was this bulletin board display.

IMG_1163[1]

When we return from Spring Break we are going to begin doing Gumball Math.  It’s a series of timed math tests that we created to reinforce basic addition and subtraction fact mastery.  We will do the tests every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Students are typically given 3 minutes to complete all 50 math problems.  {We obviously have to make some slight adjustments for some students.}  As they successfully pass each test they earn a gumball to glue in their machine and a gumball to eat.

Here’s a detailed list of all the tests that our students try to successfully complete before the end of the year . . .

clip_image004      and here’s a little {sneak} peek of everything that is included Gumball Math packet.

We also created a Gumball Math {Expansion Pack} that we use tests from to supplement specific skills we are working on.  We always call these the “BONUS” tests.  We  pass these out from time to time to give students additional opportunities to earn gumballs.  We’ve cut a baggie full of gumballs {1-inch circles} made out of bright scrapbook paper prints for students to glue in their machines each time they pass one of these “BONUS” tests.

Here’s a list of all the tests that are included in the Gumball Math {Expansion Pack} . . .

Keeping everything organized can always be a challenge.

We would love to give away a complete set of our Gumball Math Tests to {three} of our followers to use in their classrooms.

To enter your name in the giveaway just leave us a comment telling us what your favorite flavor of gum is. 

We will accept entries until the end of the day on Wednesday, March 21st.

The winners will be notified via e-mail so make sure you leave your address in the comment.

  32. I don't usually chew gum, but my favorite was always grape Hubba Bubba. The flavor only lasted about 10 minutes, but it was great while it lasted!! My kids would love this unit! I do something similar that we call Math Olympics, but it doesn't include a subtraction component...just addition to +10.

    I actually used a gumball machine as my back to school bulletin board for first grade. I made a huge gumball machine and wrote "Wel-'GUM' to First Grade. Then in each gumball I put a picture of each of the first grade teachers on my team. would love for you to take a look at my new blog.

  150. It's so funny that y'all decided to spotlight this pack because it has been my FAVORITE purchase lately. I've been using your Gumball Math for the past three weeks and the kids L-O-V-E it. {Well, except for a few. Lord help 'em!} I am SOOOO glad that I bought this and the expansion pack. Thank you so much for creating this and feel free not to count my comment as part of the giveaway! Love it!

  156. GUM....I think that it should be a food group!! Since I LOVE bubble gum SO much I let my students chew gum with me! It cuts down on the chatting and I have found that it actually helps them focus! My favorite flavor is BUBBLE GUM - plain old pink bubble gum!!

  173. My mom and I went to an old fashion candy shoppe last month and they had clover gum, my mom and I were both super excited! I also love bubblegum ice cream, ok so that is nit a flavor of gum, but I love all those tiny gumballs in the bright blue ice cream (seriously unhealthy, but such a yummy treat!)
    Your gumball math looks great!

  179. Love the idea!! I teach a 1st grade Dual Immersion in Spanish class. Do you have any other types of incentives for sight words or reading? Also, I'm pretty sure you already gave out the freebie, but if not my favorite flavor is cinnamon. I need to re-type and translate everything in Spanish, so would love to receive a freebie!

  180. Quick question on the expansion pack...would you work with all of the addition 1st and then go through the subtraction or work +/-1, +/- 2, etc.?
