Holly has an awesome game that I used with my kids in small groups this week so that they will be able to play it in a center when we return from Spring Break:
The kids plot amounts of a whole pizza (on cards), but for some, they have to figure out the equivalents.
Then, they figure out the total amount of pizza they have by adding all of the amounts together!
My kids are loving this activity!I shared with you on Wednesday, my kids were also working on a Geometry Menu in Math Workshop. One of their activities was to make a game, so they of course wanted to play their game!
(which is a FABULOUS book...if you haven't read it... you should!)They had to write down facts they learn about Harriet on sticky notes as they listened (using evidence and inferences). Then, I had them get in groups of 6 and compare their notes. Any of the sticky notes facts that were similar, they stuck together.
