Vending Machine Monkeys
So, my husband says to me, "Did you see the monkeys in the vending machine at the grocery store?" He does the grocery shopping, so I didn't. But I went to check them out.
As soon as I saw them, my mind was racing. Couting. Sorting. Adding. Subtracting. Grouping. Projects. Crafts. Favors.
I got a roll a quarters and went to town. I know that I got some strange looks from people passing by. That's okay. I literally stuck my purse under the machine, so that the little plastic balls with the monkeys inside would fall right into my purse. I went back later and got more.
They are funny little critters with different expressions and in different positions. Lots of ways to sort these little guys.
I just never know where I will find inspiration for preschool math!
Have a fun and playful day
