introduction to estimating
Each morning for the past few weeks I’ve put a handful of something in a clear, plastic jar for our family to guess the amount of.
So far I’ve tried 1-20 of the following objects: bouncy balls, dominoes, pom poms, noodles, coins, buttons, and ketchup packets.
Dad has developed the role of putting ridiculous guesses down which we laugh about and B really enjoys getting to actually dump and count them.
We’ve had so much fun with this activity and at the same time it has been great for estimating, counting, more/less, beginning reading skills, and beginning writing skills!
