The note he left behind this morning. Below is a student counting up their gold after we found it all over the room!
Tomorrow we will follow up in a math station with this activity. Students will make a pot of gold. On each coin they will show a way to model that number and tell about it, like even or odd, what comes before & after.
After finding all the leprechaun's hidden gold in the room, kids created these pots of gold for math. They made their number with tens & ones, tallies, expanded form, number word, and recorded what come before & after, and whether it is even or odd.
Found this cute little leprechaun on Mrs. Carroll's blog, The First Grade Parade. The kids had fun sharing when they felt lucky.
