My Number Munchers Gang!
Hello crafters! Hope everyone has been having a great week. Summer vacation for me is coming to a close and I'll be heading back to school next week. Time to get back into the mind set of lesson planning, and getting up at 5am! lol. When it's time to go back, I usually like to do something for the gals on my team to welcome everybody back. I had been planning on making some "Number Munchers" for myself to use with my kiddos for math and then decided to make one for each girl on my team. So, I went to Dollar Tree and found these little plastic garbage cans. I used some googly eyes, lace and trim, and some curly ribbon to make the hair. I found some self stick foam numbers from Michaels and added those as well. You can do lots of math practice with these munchers, for example, show a number and have the student feed that many items/counters/manipulatives to the muncher. For addition practice, you can tell your students the muncher is only eating sums to 8 today, etc. Can't wait to bring these guys to school next week! :)
