My mom found this adorable book at a Sam's Club in Ohio...she's working on an egg craft to go along with a writing project we'll do with the book before Easter...I'll blog about that when we get it all put together....but I thought I'd share some "Roly Poly" egg ideas for your math tubs...
I found these adorable little plastic eggs for 40% off at Hobby Lobby and used paint to make dot patterns from 0 to 6. The cup basket was 67 cents at Hobby Lobby and made the perfect holder for the small eggs. The idea of this math tub is to pull out 3 eggs and record them on the Roly Poly Egg sheet. Then add the three numbers together. Kids can use the dots on the eggs to help with the adding if they need...
Another great 40% off buy at Hobby Lobby was a bag of small break apart plastic eggs. I painted numbers from 1 to 12 on the tops of the eggs and then added some stones (from the Dollar Tree) that I painted numbers on the inside.
I took a black permanent marker and added the numbers to the bottom of an empty egg carton.
Then added the eggs to the egg carton.
The idea is to take one egg...crack it open...record the numbers on the inside and solve the problem...whether you want them to add or subtract. Then put the numbers back inside the egg and the egg back in the carton before moving onto the next number of egg.
I didn't do a worksheet with this. I think I'll just have them fold a sheet of paper into 12 boxes and record their sentences in the boxes.
Hope you find something useful!
