I decided that for counting patterns I would create a 'scenario' for the kids.
Queue Truck Driver Bob.
'Truck Driver Bob' was on a delivery and had an eensy weensy, non-fatal, itty bitty crash.
It's alright. He's OK...BUT now the items he was supposed to deliver have spread ALL OVER THE ROAD! :( AND he has no idea how many of each item he has....and you know...he NEEDS to know...
***This is where the kids came in***
It was their job to find out how many of each item there was that had been 'spilled all over the road' so that we could report back to 'Truck Drive Bob'.
There were 5 stations:
I set a timer and they had about 7(ish) minutes to complete each station. I had group leaders who were in charge of keeping noise down, cleaning up at the end of each activity and making decisions.
As they completed each activity, they had to fill in the following recording sheet.
PS I was devastated at not being able to find cute 'crash' clip art and had to settle for what I could find.
