Hats Winter Hats

See They liked the box of hats today to hang up on the clothes line and to wear . We also make Hats to take home out of paper plates and paper. We also worked on more Dice math (which they love ) younger one roll one dice and color in the box and older one roll two dice and add together and color in the number . This sheet i got over at mail box companions. But can make your own like i did earlier in week . Then we also practice writing our full first name . I did letter trace from DLTK. Great site for printable numbers and letters.

An Icy Experience

An Icy Experience
so need clear jar
ruler and marker
so i fill jar 1/2 full with water and have the kids measure it.Then freeze the water . Take out and measure again . Record your finding . We used predictions . Then we let it melt again and redid above . Beside some fun science . Sciences build vocab. This idea from Mailbox magazine.
Then we did our letter Thursday Ii . I use mom printable. I also made a math game today snowflake math . I took a snowflake cut out wrote numbers over and gave them a dice and dabber to cover the numbers with . Younger children had numbers 1-6 older 1-12 with two dice . They really enjoy this . Great practice adding and number recognition .
