    estimation idea using patterned wrapping paper...

  • Jenny Pettenger

    Find patterned wrapping paper or scrapbook paper to help your kids with estimation I purposefully picked papers that had patterns that were complicated so the kids couldnt count the figures one-by-one. I hang these up was posters with signs that say "How many ________ can you see?" The goal is for them to come up with some estimation strategies instead of counting the objects individually.

I agree we are all wired different, some others have gifts that make them stronger in certain areas, I can respect someone who isn't exactly like me....not only can I teach them, but I can learn from them at the same time....I don't feel required to tell people everything, but if I can guide someone to figuring things out for themselves then I can give them power........
