Last Cooking Activity of the Year

On Monday, we did the last cooking activity of the year. We made strawberry shortcake. I couldn't find pre-made shortcake at the store, so we used ladyfingers. First the kids put two ladyfingers next to each other on a plate. Next, they put whipped cream on the ladyfingers. Then, the kids cut up the strawberries into chunks and put them on top of the whipped cream. Last, the kids added a blueberry on top. 

It was a yummy treat!

Math Fun With Erasers

We are learning about ladybugs this month. I bought these cute mini bug erasers from Oriental Trading and we did four math activities with them today.

First, we made bug patterns.

Then, we did bug subtraction. We started with 10 and took away 8...

We ended up with 2 bugs.

Then, we practiced addition. Four plus six equals ten. 4 + 6 = 10
2 + 8 =10 

Finally, we made a graph out of our bugs and we talked about what we had the most of and the least of.
