[00:00:27.380]Hi friends and family!
[00:00:29.040]I wanna show you a fun activity to
[00:00:31.570]incorporate math skills in your snack-time.
[00:00:35.150]It just takes a little bit of
[00:00:37.030]preparation of materials.
[00:00:39.570]The first thing that you wanna get
[00:00:41.040]ready are some paper towels,
[00:00:43.840]or a piece of paper would also work for this.
[00:00:46.670]And you're gonna draw out just
[00:00:48.230]some simple math concepts on
[00:00:51.960]the paper towel.
[00:00:53.890]The first one that you can do is a ten frame.
[00:00:56.800]So this is a frame of ten boxes that help
[00:01:00.630]children easily visually see a group of ten.
[00:01:07.370]Another one could be a group of four.
[00:01:10.610]So just separating you paper towel into
[00:01:15.180]a set of four.
[00:01:18.460]Another math skill is
[00:01:20.920]understanding positional words and
[00:01:23.650]so top and bottom could be one that
[00:01:26.980]you might have ready.
[00:01:30.950]And another math big idea is
[00:01:33.710]more or less.
[00:01:41.330]for those children that are able to do an
[00:01:44.730]equation you could create a paper towel
[00:01:48.119]that sets up an equation which has
[00:01:51.800]one box plus another box and what
[00:01:55.230]does that equal.
[00:01:58.360]So the idea is that you would
[00:01:59.680]have these ready out
[00:02:01.030]on the table with
[00:02:04.100]a desired snack.
[00:02:06.610]The snack that children really enjoy,
[00:02:10.110]and you could either talk them through this
[00:02:14.230]activity or they could figure it out with
[00:02:18.530]placing items in
[00:02:23.720]the paper towel mat.
[00:02:26.850]So look, Dexter,
[00:02:27.683]we have a ten frame.
[00:02:29.523]A ten frame is where we have ten spots for
[00:02:34.990]items to go in,
[00:02:36.870]so can you take your snack today and place
[00:02:40.130]one goldfish in each box.
[00:02:44.990]You can count along if you want as
[00:02:46.700]you put them.
[00:02:47.740]Or you can count at the end.
[00:02:56.820]You're gonna put them going the same direction
[00:03:02.330]and a different direction on the bottom.
[00:03:05.550]Okay, can you count them for me?
[00:03:07.530]One, two, three, four, five, six
[00:03:11.300]seven, eight, nine, ten.
[00:03:13.800]Now you need to eat them up!
[00:03:18.910]Okay, your next challenge we
[00:03:20.900]have the words more on this side,
[00:03:24.870]and the words less on this side.
[00:03:27.670]Can you put more on the left,
[00:03:30.280]and less on the right?
[00:03:41.870]How many do you have on the more side?
[00:03:44.479]One, two, three, four, five, six.
[00:03:47.420]And how many do you have on the less?
[00:03:50.620]What if you add three more to the less?
[00:03:59.700]Now is it still true?
[00:04:02.810]One, two, three, four.
[00:04:05.350]And how many do you have on the more side?
[00:04:07.670]One, two, three, four, five, six.
[00:04:11.250]Is the equation still true?
[00:04:15.470]Now you can eat them up!
[00:04:19.557]All right Ruby, you have a four frame.
[00:04:22.190]You're gonna put one goldfish in each box.
[00:04:36.110]You have four!
[00:04:37.230]How many all together do you have?
[00:04:42.790]All right Ruby your next challenge is
[00:04:44.470]top or bottom.
[00:04:46.010]Can you put goldfish in the bottom?
[00:04:54.800]Can you put goldfish in the top?
[00:05:05.060]You have them in both the top and bottom.
[00:05:08.874]Can you take two out of the bottom?
[00:05:14.210]Oh yeah you could put them in the top.
[00:05:17.470]Can you empty the top?
[00:05:25.560]Where are all of your goldfish?
[00:05:26.780]At the top or at the bottom?
[00:05:28.850]They are at the bottom!
[00:05:30.320]All right Dexter you have an equation don't you?
[00:05:34.470]An equation, this is an addition equation
[00:05:37.820]so you're gonna add two things together
[00:05:40.840]to get a sum.
[00:05:42.610]A sum is the total at the end.
[00:05:45.690]Do you wanna do one by yourself first or
[00:05:47.780]do you me to help?
[00:05:49.763]Okay, let's put two goldfish in the first box.
[00:05:57.780]Lets put two more goldfish in the next box.
[00:06:01.970]Now, how many do we have altogether at the end?
[00:06:15.710]OK Dexter, so how many-
[00:06:16.970]There's a four.
[00:06:18.850]Oh yeah I made a four.
[00:06:19.780]Can you read me the equation?
[00:06:22.231]Two plus two equals
[00:06:29.760]Four, that's right.
[00:06:42.576]five, six goldfish.
[00:06:48.836]And then I add six more.
[00:06:54.977]Wow is your sum gonna be a double digit?
[00:07:04.430]And then adding them and
[00:07:08.790]six plus six is
[00:07:37.200]Wow! Can you give me the equation?
[00:07:40.795]Six plus six equals twelve!
[00:07:45.600]I made a board!
[00:07:46.920]See Dexter, how many goldfish did it take
[00:07:49.270]for you to make that four?
[00:07:50.430]One, two, three, four, five,
[00:07:53.910]six, seven, eight, nine, ten.
[00:07:57.172]Yeah! It took ten.
[00:07:59.340]What happens if you eat three?
[00:08:06.230]How many did you take away?
[00:08:09.373]And how many do you have in all?
[00:08:11.252]One, two, three, four,
[00:08:13.603]five, six, seven.
[00:08:16.367]So how many do you have in all?
[00:08:19.001]That's right the number that
[00:08:19.970]you end on is how many you have in all.
