### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product gives directions on how to create "dog and bone lima bean" counters. It also includes 3 recording sheets - the first for counting, the second for addition and the last for subtraction. Also included is a title card that can be used to label your center. I like to put my Math Centers in "sandwich sized" plastic containers. They stack very nicely on my bookshelves and the smaller title label can be taped to the side so I can easily find the center I am looking for.

Give the Dog a Bone Counting activity - Child "spills the beans"( I keep the beans in a pharmacy pill bottle), sorts the beans into groups of dogs and bones, counts and records the numbers on the recording sheet. The child continues to "spill the beans" until the sheet is full.

Give the Dog a Bone Spill the Beans Addition activity - Child "spills the beans", sorts the beans into groups of dogs and bones, writes an addition sentence, and finds the sum. The child continues to "spill the beans" until the sheet is full.

Give the Dog a Bone Spill the Beans Subtraction activity - Child "spills the beans", counts ALL the beans, then sorts the beans into groups of dogs and bones, writes a subtraction sentence subtracting the dogs from the total number of beans, and counts the bones to find the difference. The child continues to "spill the beans" until the sheet is full.

NOTE: The total number of beans in the bottle DOES NOT change. It is up to you as to how many beans are in the bottle. I sometimes put several pill bottles out - each with a different number of beans. The child should only choose 1 bottle to complete the recording sheet.

This is a great Math Center activity. The kids love it! I hope your kids have fun with it.
