I found these adorable ice cream cones and scoops at The Dollar Tree a while ago. Like months ago. Of course, being an elementary teacher, I snatched them up. I knew I'd think of something sooner or later. Well, it wasn't sooner. It was definitely later, but an idea finally hit me. Division. Some of my little peanuts still struggle with it... and multiplication too. If you come across something similar at your nearest Dollar Paradise, you may want to pick up a few sets of these beauties, because you can use pom poms to work with "ice cream" and solve math facts. I love this manipulative, and it really makes me UBER excited for summer. Unfortunately, we have ANOTHER Winter Weather Advisory tonight. Bah humbug!
|I'm pretty sure this bag used to hold valances... now it holds "ice cream". The Lorax would be so proud of me...|
