## Reflection: Lesson Planning Addition in Bloom - Section 2: Activity

Sometimes there just isn’t time in the day to do a full math lesson.  I like to have some activities like this lesson ready to go.  I believe that if we take a break from math learning, we go backwards.  At the kindergarten level it is so important to have constant reinforcement of skills.

There are fun, creative ways to integrate skill review into daily activities, especially during days that have special celebrations.  I think critically about skills I want to review or reinforce during this time and then create simple games that hit these skills.  I have a few basic games and just simply swap out the clip art.  This game could easily be reproduced with farm animals, rain drops, frogs, etc. to go with special themes.
