March is reading month math? Why yes! You can't skip math completely during the month of March so why not make it reading-related and carry the theme of the month into math?! Well I can help you do just that with my latest products! I have created three color by number activities with a reading theme. These are fun coloring pages where students have to solve math problems and use their answer to color the picture according to the code at the bottom of the page.
All of the pictures are reading-related. There is a stack of books, a bookworm reading a book, an open book, word art made with the word "read", a classroom reading corner, a super-hero book, a bookworm sitting on top of a stack of books and a cute bear reading a book. As with all of my color by number activities they come in three editions. One for addition and subtraction to 10, one for two-digit addition and subtraction to 100 and one for multiplication and division facts 0-12. Each pack has eight color by number activities (with colored answer keys), four addition (or multiplication) and four subtraction (or division).
These activities work great for morning work or spare time activities for early finishers. Just keep them in a folder where students can easily access when they completed their work. You could also include a colored copy of each picture for students to self-correct when they are done!

The first thing you want to do is lay three of the same color of pipe cleaners side by side so their ends line up. Place one pack of smarties on top of the pipe cleaners. Wrap the pipe cleaners around the smarties twisting them one or two times around the smarties until they are snug.
Next, bend the pipe cleaners to form six "knees". Then bend the bottom of each pipe cleaner into small loops to form "feet".
Slide the foam wings through the back of the smarties and up until they reach the dragonfly's legs.
Glue two googly eyes on top of the dragonfly's legs and let dry. Send the dragonflies home with students at the end of the day for a fun Valentine's treat they can enjoy later!
