This is a fun way to practice matching

Write a number on the top half of the egg.
Draw dots to match on the bottom half of the egg.
Scramble The Eggs!
Pull the eggs apart and mix up the top and bottom.
Now match the numbers and the dots.

Thanks for stopping by :)

COWBOY MATH

Howdy Partner!

Be A "Quick Draw" In Math Facts!
Miss Carla Cowgirl came to class today.
She showed the Kinder Kids how to draw the answers to addition facts FAST!
In our Cowboy Math Center each Kinder Kid had the tools to be a "quick draw".
Each Kinder Kid had a white board and marker.
Miss Carla Cowgirl showed an addition fact for only 3 seconds.  That's FAST!
Kinder Kids were so fast to grab their marker and "quick draw" the answer.
There was a stampede of learning going on!

LOVE HEART #CRAYONS

      Kinder Kids Loved These Heart Crayons
I let each Kinder Kid pick the heart they wanted.
What Smiles :) 
What Fun!

So Easy to Make! 
Broken bits of crayon, 
Silicone heart trays, 
230 degree oven, 
15 minutes or until melted, 
Cool down, 
Pop out. 
Give your heart away!

I first saw this on Pinterest. I love pinning! 
Then I saw the silicone heart trays at Target.
I have lots of broken crayons and I couldn't resist.
Now I am looking for more shapes because it was just too fun and my Kinder Kids love them.
(Originally pinned by Martha Stewart Living onto Valentine's Day)

Dear Reader what fun do you have with crayons?

Please share your ideas.
I would love to hear from you.
Until then, stay warm this winter and here's wishing...
