Ten Frame Puzzle

As I always looking for new ideas to incorporate into my bilingual centers or even math centers. Well I came across a nice puzzle that involves number recognition and ten frames. With the EnVision curriculum students are having so much trouble with ten frames. I saw it on pinterest and thought I should create my own. Here its is. All you got to do is cut it to make the puzzle. I love it. I know you won't be disappointed. Click here. Please make sure to leave a comment if you like to download it. I want some feedback.

Black true color

In the summer I attend some summer training. In one of the training we did some science experiments. We used a coffee filter and a vis a vis marker (black). We did dots on the filter. We made a hole in the middle and inserted a brown paper towel that was dipped in water. As the water was being absorbed by the paper into the filter you would see the true color of black. This experiment only works with black vis a vis markers. Students will love to see how black is really made. Have fun!

Parts of a plant

I used this so students could label parts of a plant in Spanish. We used contruction paper, coffee filter and crayons. It was a simple task. Kids loved it. I wasn't able to share with you guys but am back. I share any creative ideas I come across.
