How is your week going?
This week has been pretty jammed packed for us with lots of fun going on
The kiddos are busting with excitement
We are going to celebrate our 100th day and Valentines tomorrow
This should be interesting
Here is our week so far in pictures
I laid these buckets out and asked the kiddos what they think we are going to do with all these
The all screamed measure with them.
I love teaching measurement
There are so many fun things that you can do with this skill and the kiddos get really excited to get
to math time.
We measured using two different kinds of marshmallows.
The kiddos first had to estimate how many marshmallows it would take to measure each line then
use their marshmallows to see if their predictions were correct.
You can pick up the sheet we used here for free
After we finished that we couldn’t just throw the marshmallows away so we measured each other
I even got measured
I am proud to say that I am 92 marshmallows tall!
Now with that being said I had a kiddo who was 81 marshmallows long!!!!!
Sad, I know that a kinder is almost taller than me
Here is a picture of me getting measured
Before I show you I must give you warning
I had to find a picture where I didn’t look like a beached whale
Everything looks different when laying down
Things start to move and go left all on their own
Its for the children
You may proceed at your own risk
