We made paper pattern chains to help keep track of how many days until Christmas. We learned sooooo much math from this activity! Counting on, counting back, even and odd, patterns, estimation, measurement, addition, and counting equal sets...multiplication!!! At the end of the activity Grace had an amazing wonder... How many links would our chain have if we joined all 18 groups together? I think I know what we are going to be doing tomorrow!!!!! These kiddos amaze me with their insight, deep thinking and never ending wonders!!!! I love my job!
