Q-tip Painting with a FREEBIE

Hi blogging friends!  We are doing an ABC countdown just like many of you are doing as well.  Today was the letter Q day so what do we do...paint with Q-tips!!!  
I have done this in different ways in past years.  Last year we painted pictures with Q-tips.  Check out the Raven logo that I did last year.  I have serious Q-tip painting skills, right?!?!
Today we used Q-tips to paint the dots from dot cubes and then recorded the addition equations.  Can I just tell you how wonderful this was...seriously...so.much.fun!  They were engaged, excited, and LEARNING!!  We have been working a lot on addition and subtraction and my teacher heart was so happy when they did an awesome job with this!  
Here are some pictures of their work!
Want to try this with your students?!?!  Click the image to grab the FREEBIE!!
Have a super rest of the week!
