Some ideas to share with you guys

hey guys!! i cant believe i already have close to 30 followers.. thats awesome thanks so much! I definitely am following you guys and it seems that everyone has great ideas to share!! I wanted to share an idea im doing this week with my kiddies... They behave so well for me and I thought i'd give them something sweet in return!!  They have been struggling a bit with estimating so i thought i'd make things interesting!! I'm having a estimate contest with them this week.  I filled up 3 jars with different candies...yummm... (choc pretzels, reese's pieces and starburst).. Everyone had a turn to take a look at the jars and *Guesstimate* hehe how many they think are in each.. They were to fill out a worksheet in which they put their numbers in and dropped it off in a jar.  The winner or the closest will get to keep what's in the jars!! The students got so excited when i told them... I hope this will make them get estimating more .. What do you guys think??? Here's a pic of the jars and the sweets! Also im putting down a pic of my stationary!! I wanted you guys to see how much i love leopard!! lol My student's say it looks weird but i think it looks fab!  ...let me know what you think =) Talk to you soon!
