Yummy Doubles and Giveaway WINNERS

We have been learning about doubles in math since right before Christmas break. To further explore doubles we did this cute little activity yesterday that came from Bishop's Blackboard. The students turned a healthy snack into math manipulatives, specifically doubles dominoes:

Mrs. Bishop (from Bishop's Blackboard) used graham crackers, frosting, and chocolate chips. I had to use different materials to meet the lame state nutrition guidelines (but it was STILL fun and tasty!). We used graham crackers, cream cheese, and raisins. The cream cheese was fresh out of the fridge so it was slightly stiff and the kids had a little trouble spreading it on the cracker. It was fine though and the activity went well, so no biggie.

We also used a recording sheet for the activity made by Carrie at A First Grade Teacher's Passions and Obsessions.
