Today we are studying fractions. I had some left over colored rice which I gave to the kids along with each getting a canning jar funnel, narrow funnel, wide moth jar, small mouth jar, cheese jar, measuring spoon,and a specimen bottle. I set them up with different colors so I will know who needs to sweep the floor by who gets the most rice on the floor. I cautioned them that the rice on the floor will be put in the trash. Now and then I walk over and say whose jar is full, half full, ... ---sandbox math!
