The whole idea began with a small collection of ... confetti!
They are organized using small Gerber containers. Gerber peaches are my favorite. Yum!
I used them to create a two dimensional estimation jar.
This is how it works: I pick a handful of confetti. I project the confetti. My students estimate. We use sticky notes to organize our data using post-its. We decide how we are counting our data (by 2's, 5's, 10's). We find who got closest to the actual number and record it on our estimation books. We are making a book with the estimation of the month.
The kids LOVE it! They keep begging me to get more confetti. I need to go shopping :)
But of course you can continue to use your 3 dimensional estimation jar.
Raise your hand if you'd like to try that?
This is when you raise your hand and visit my TPT store to check this new product.
If you are the first one to estimate how big my family is (cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents...) back home in Mexico City, you'll get it for free.
