Math stations

We added some new math stations and the kids were so excited!

In this station each kid tossed their Pom Pom onto the 100 chart and then built that number using rods and singles. 

We used oicture puzzle cards to work on addition. 

iPads.  We have several addition apps the kids can use. 

One more, one less 
The kids rolled the 10 sided dice and the the dice that said +1 and -1.  If they rolled a 6 and then +1 , they would say 6 and one more make 7. 

Counting on
The kids would pick up a cup and see how many counters they had, then they would count on (ex if the cup had 8 they would write 8-9-10-11 )

Counting sets
We used our reusable sleeves to practice counting sets. 

Fill out the 100 chart

We are using compass to work on kindergarten math standards and set our learning paths.

The 100th Day

It's the 100th day!!!!!  Wow!  The kids were so excited. 
We made colored our 100 day crowns and went to specials.  When we came back, Zero the Hero brought us a special snack!  (a Kit Kat with two fudge round cookies to make the number 100)

Then we made our 100 day snack.  We counted out 10 of each item to create our 100 piece trail mix.  We had goldfish, marshmallows, M&Ms, chocolate chips, Apple Jacks, Cheerios , Cheezits, Cocopuffs, Chex, and pretzel sticks. 

Then we worked on our mystery picture.  We composed and decomposed numbers to create the number 100! 

We licked a lollipop 100 times!  

Then we created our 100 piece necklace.  We sorted our Fruit Loops made a necklace with 100 pieces of cereal. 

We had some 100 year olds show up at school today.  

They were all so proud of their 100 day t shirts!!!

We had a lot of 100 day posters come in too!!
