Caterpillar project

We had some very hungry little caterpillars join our class today to help gear us up for our bug unit in 2 weeks time...

Bunny money

We read the story Bunny Money about two little rabbits who save up their money to buy grandma a birthday present. The kids practiced sorting and counting dimes, nickels, pennies, and quarters.
Afterwards the kids made their own funny money. $97 and $99996666 dollar bills.
