A trip to a local dollar store is always an adventure for teachers as we keep an eye out for items to use in our classrooms. Today, I netted a package of 75 plastic multi-colored counting chips, an inch and a half in diameter. With summer approaching, I also found a child’s small sand pail.
Back at my desk, I took out my set of MindWing’s Icon STAMPede Rubber Stamp Set and stamped out a complete episode, one stamp per chip. I put the chips in the pail and will use them as a closing activity next week with my small group of students.
Pair the activity with any number of books about a trip to the beach… Spot Goes to the Beach by Eric Hill and Clifford and the Big Storm by Norman Bridwell come to mind. As summer gets closer, this is a quick, enjoyable way to review the SGM® icons!
