Jelly Bean Math Centers and Dollar Tree

06 April 2011
I started my Jelly Bean Math Centers today.  I sent home the donation letter that comes with the packet and I was overwhelmed by the response from parents!  It just so happened that Dollar Tree had all the donations needed.  The only thing I needed to do was buy a few more small Dollar Tree metal Easter buckets.  As I was at the Dollar Tree, I met a parent and she so graciously took the adorable plastic chick eggs, that I plan to use with Anna Brantley's Hippoty Hoppity Math and Literacy Centers, out of my hands and bought them for me.  So nice to have supportive parents!
The kids were so excited to go to the centers and they were actually very quiet.  They were really enjoying themselves and concentrating!   I am also very lucky that our AIS math specialist pushes into my class for math centers and follows her group around to the various centers.  Check out the photos below of three of the Jelly Bean Math Centers.

  1. How fun!! You may be familiar with these ideas:
    *mystery sound eggs- put different items in the eggs and write a number on each egg. Recording sheet has a corresponding # and they write their guess
    *addition/subtraction eggs- You can write different #'s on both halves of the egg. Twist and add/subtract
    *Egg Collector- # and place 12 plastic eggs in an egg carton. Roll dice and try to empty your egg carton first by making a addition/subtraction sentences with the eggs.

    Thank you for all of your wonderful ideas!
