DON”T FORGET TO ENTER IN MY FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!
It’s Wednesday, which usually means crazy times here at our house. Well, not that crazy really, but any time we have outside commitments, is seems crazy. We never manage to accomplish all that I have us set to do, but the important stuff always gets done and Wednesdays are always fun.
Before I list our boxes for today, I wanted to tell you about an activity that we have in our boxes today:
We’ve been working on money, coin recognition, values etc. So today, after seeing something similar over at the First Grade Parade (She used heart shaped boxes with letter tiles in them and had her kids figure out what each box spelled. Cool, huh?), I filled three baby food jars (you work with what you’ve got, right?) with random sets of coins. Then I printed out three copies of a sheet where on one side the kids will practice tallying the different types of coins and on the other side, they’ll graph how many of each type of coin they tallied. Each jar is marked ‘A’, ‘B’, and ‘C’ so that on their papers they’ll have a tally and a graph for each letter. When they are done, we’ll come together and check our answers as a group.
Okay… Here are our boxes today!
