Jack and the Beanstalk

We are reading Jack and the Beanstalk this week.  Here are some of the activities we completed today:

First, we sorted eggs that Jack’s golden egg laying hen left us.  She also left us a note, but I can’t find the picture of that! 🙂  She basically asked us to take these eggs and sort them.  We sorted them face down, so none of the children could see the letters written on their friends eggs.  They had to sort strictly on size.  We then turned all the eggs in that group over to see how close we were.

Next, we completed this sheet that has us sharing eggs with our friends:

Then, we created rulers (centimeters) and measured things at our tables:

We will be measuring other things with these rulers this week so this was just an activity to get our exploring out of our system! 😉  I’ll post more this week.
