Estimating

We have a new weekly family activity in our house. This is our 4th week of playing a family game of “Let’s Guess”IMG_2178Each Sunday I present the family with a new object in a new container for us to estimate. Each person writes his/her guess and then each Sunday evening during our family time, we count them all together and see who wins. The winner gets a big star by their name and high fives all around! It’s a fun and simple way to bond together while also learning some great math skills.

So far we have estimated:

  • counting bear {in honor of our bear themed week}
  • beans {pictured above}
  • colored craft sticks
  • jelly beans

I can guess too, because I just grab to fill the container, I don’t pre-count. My inspiration for doing this with my family came from here!
