Linking up with Doodle Bugs to share 5 from my week:)
So here's a peek at 5 of my things from this week
After my last post about my math workshop I got quite a few questions about my pop top math so I thought I would share a quick video and some pics. These are just plastic tops from pop and water bottles. Little, round stickers fit perfectly on and in them. The sticker on the top is the math fact. Ours is multiplication because my kiddos can't practice enough!!
The kids love to play this! If they get the fact right, they keep it...if they get it wrong, they put it back. Whoever has the most pop tops at the end wins:)
I have been trying to pull out some fun stuff these last weeks of school. One thing we did this week was make rocks out of playdoh. They chose igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic. They had a blast doing this....yes, 4th graders like to play with playdoh too!
Today I brought in toothpicks and a big bag of marshmallows and let the kids choose a 3D shape and make it.
After they made their shape they had to fill our a card with a pic, edges, vertices, and faces. On the back of the card they had to draw a net of the shape:)
We had to finish up our week with our flashlight Friday:) We all have just grown to LOVE this time. It is so quiet and the kids love reading this way.
The highlight of my week? This week my baby boy graduated from high school!!
This momma is proud and exhausted. I have survived my daughter's college awards and graduation, my son's senior prom and graduation:) It's been a crazy, wonderful couple of weeks:)
Have a blessed weekend everyone!
