A bit unorthodox I realize, but sometimes the learning just has to be hands on, nitty gritty, down on the floor. Plus I know from experience the marker will eventually fade. But, it's amazing how much easier it is to count this way, as opposed to drawing marshmallows on a paper. Plus it's fun, plus we actually ate marshmallows after. I always like my kids to have cubes at hand, ready if they need them for counting, patterning, etc…and I finally found a practical way to store their cubes. These are old Excel gum containers. The cubes fit in perfectly and they are so easy for little hands to carry around.
It's the 100th day of school for us on Tuesday, so we'll be doing a lot of counting then. Here's a quick word search if you can use it. Just click right on it to download.
Since Valentine's Day follows so quickly after the 100th Day, I wanted to be ready, so I have a cute Freebie for ya. Hope you can use it, it's got a little Math practice with addends and tens, some letter writing and sound sorting too. Just click and GO!
Have a great weekend.
