One of things we did today in math was to make our own gamepieces. I have small sticky pictures that were given to us from the picture company. We usually use those pictures for Christmas ornaments and other gifts for families. However, this year, we did not get them before Christmas. Since I have 6 for each child I have plenty to use for all sorts of activities. Today, we simply stuck the picture on a cotton ball and then used tape to stick the cottonball to a large button. (I'm sure a round piece of foam would also work. This is just what I had on hand.) Here is the final product...QUICK and EASY-PEASY!!!
The students love using this personalized game playing piece!
