We learned some cool facts about ants....
and played a fun Ants in My pants game to help us practice our addition facts.
This is a SUPER easy game that my littles love to play.
To play: You need a 12 sided die and each child needs a regular dot die.
One child rolls the 12 sided die to determine the sum they are looking for.
Then, each child rolls their dot die. The kids analyze the dice and on their white boards they record how many ways they can make the sum of 12 using the numbers on the dice they rolled.
For example, a 12 is rolled on the die above.
So the kids roll their dice and roll a 4, 5, 3, 2, 5
They analyze the dice and record their addition sentences.
Hint: You can make this game easier by using a regular dot die instead of the 12 sided die.
Here is the Chit Chat message that we did yesterday.

I also include a black and white version if that's your preference. :)
Make sure you give your littles the opportunity to turn and "chit chat" with a partner to answer the question at the end.
