In math today we reviewed addition, and I got out our "real" pennies! The kids love being the teacher, so I had one student write out an addition problem and his/her partner got to answer it. Then of course we switch roles. I had to remind them that they needed to keep their numbers under 10, or I believe I might have seen 1000 +1000! It is so funny when they learn/hear/memorize simple, but big number addition problems. hehehehe :o)
The kids have also gotten soooo excited seeing some of the new addition activities I made for them. These are from my Build a Sundae, Addition and Subtraction set. It is amazing how motivated they can get to do a paper when they see something on it they love - ice-cream! :o) Yummy!
On this little paper the kids are cutting out the ice cream scoop answer to solve the addition problem. We also worked with the Build an Ice Cream Cone center set, and the kids built their own ice cream cone addition problems.
