Students take turns bringing home the estimation jar, fill it, complete the corresponding page in the estimation book, and return it to school for the class to estimate how many items are inside.
Work on concepts such as greater/less than, number identification, estimation, counting, and more, without your students even knowing it!
Contains 4 different estimation recording books (with parent note) to use as your student's skills progress throughout the year. The first jar can only contain 30 or less items, while the last between 30 and 100!
Also included are tips/suggestions of how to use it in your classroom effectively while reinforcing math skills, along with labels to put on your jars. (sorry, actual jar not included)
My students are so excited when it is there turn to take home the jar, and love seeing "how close" their estimates were! "My guess was only 4 less!" Who's estimate was equal!" Love that math talk!
