Spring Color by Number

Well hello there!  I'm Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom.  I'm so excited that Jeannie is letting me share some ideas with all of you!

I've been spending a lot of time thinking about math lately.  I am a reading person and have a reading specialist license.  But over the last few months, I've been spending most of my time thinking about math.  I've been trying to brainstorm different ways students can practice math-especially math facts.  I've been creating a ton of games, some spiral review packs, and finally some fun worksheets for students to practice.  I really didn't expect the worksheets to be a big hit, but the ones I created for Easter were HUGE!  Did you see this floating around Pinterest?
After seeing the success of my my color by number activities, I decided to create some additional ones for spring to share with all of you.  These practice addition facts to 20.  There are 3 different pages.  You can download it for free by clicking on one of the images.

  If you like these, come on over to my blog sometime.  New followers are always welcome! :)
Thank you so much to Jeannie for opening up her blog to so many guest posters!
