Monday Made It--Math Facts and a Giveaway



Math facts Station


I love this station--it is easy to make--and students can work together to solve the problem.  Each cup as the answer, and each stick has the addition problem.  They loved it!

Now for the giveaway.  I have reached over 100 followers--so I decided to be generous!  I noticed a lot of teachers would love their own laminator!  I would love my own  laminator, and I don't even have a classroom.  This is Scotch's Thermal Laminator.  It comes with 20 sheets.  I will order it through Amazon.

Now to enter:

1. Become a follower--make a comment!

2. Like my facebook page--make a comment!




3. An Estimation Jar

Estimate how many lego minifigures are in this jar--and comment.  You can have your entire household or classroom estimate--just put each estimation as a different comment for individual entries.  The closest entry will get 10 extra entries for the giveaway!

Good luck!

The giveaway ends August 22--our first day of school!
