Just a quick idea for you today. One of the most fun things in my mind about blogs and Pinterest is to see how different teachers have come up with totally amazing and creative approaches to teach and practice the same topics.
Take tally marks, for instance. Popsicle sticks, little rhymes and songs, lots of ways to teach them.
But take a look at this spurt of creative genius from Marsha at A Differentiated Kindergarten. She has a post about using wind-up toys on a sheet of poster board to practice tallies. And Marsha, good to the name of her blog, even differentiates it for us! Sooo motivating... and my brain won't stop adapting it to other math and literacy skills!
Can you just imagine the excitement of using wind-up toys in your classroom? What other ways can you dream up to adapt this super idea for your own class? Tell us about them!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
