"Egg"stra Special Math

Hello Everyone!
And Hello April!!  Welcome spring and welcome to some eggstra special math fun!  Today we worked on comparing and ordering numbers by playing a game we called "The Best Nest." I laid out about 20 paper egg shapes and a nest on the floor. (You know how much I love a good life sized math activity!)  The objective of the game is to fill in numbers on the eggs, knowing that there are not enough eggs for each number between 10 and 100...thinking about greater and less, number order, etc. The kids took turns drawing 2 number cards.  We had to decide which number we should put in the tens place and the ones place.  Then we had to decide where to put that number on the game board. We all worked together to help the number order work to get to "The Nest"--- 100!  Now that I have totally confused you, take a peek at some of some pics.

This and several more activities are available in my new "Eggs"tra special Math packet. Here are a few pics of what is included.

Well, gotta run! My son is coming home!  Nothing like baseball to bring my guys back together!!  So excited!!  We haven't missed a Texas Ranger home opener in years!!!

I do hope you stay tuned for another post coming soon! Sandra Markle and her animal books have inspired us again!
Have a great evening and thanks for stopping b for a peek!! Don't forget to leave a comment!!
