1. How much does a hipster weigh? An Instagram!
On Tuesday I joined in with the Instagram fun for #teachertalktuesday and something great happened... Kristin - the Teeny Tiny Teacher - liked my post!!! It was super exciting! Follow me on Insty @lozzybeck. :)
We learnt all about the letter 'b' this week. We made these cuties - Bears in Bubble Baths - as a sweet treat. I found the idea on Pinterest (of course!) from what2cook. I modified their recipe a little. The baths are chocolate cookies and we added some vanilla frosting as water. The bears are Tiny Teddies, with mini-marshmallow bubbles. Bake for a few minutes to warm the marshmallows. The kidlets loved them!
My Preppies needed to do some more work with ten frames and counting, so I turned some dollar store treasure chests into the easiest maths game ever. The kidlets rolled the dice and then added that many pieces of 'treasure' to their frame. When they had 10 pieces, they poured their treasure into their treasure chest. It was great for questions like 'How many more do you need to make 10?' and discussions about who had more or less. Oh... and lots of talking like a pirate, too! :)
Using paint dabbers to show 'how many'. Easy, right? Uh, it appears not! Although the little one in this photo is dabbing the right number... pretty much everyone else just dabbed away to their heart's content, paying absolutely no attention to the numbers at all! You win some, you lose some! :)
Found this quote this week and loved it. :)
Happy Friday everyone!
