Jello Play dough....giving it a try!

Hello! We are working on decomposing numbers in the teens....I saw this idea on A Differentiated Kindergarten (so many great ideas on her blog!) and loved the idea of  the children using play dough and ten frames to make groups of 10's and 1's. I made some work mats and tonight I made the play dough to go along with them. 

I tried the Jello play dough recipe found here
(I added yellow food coloring because it was a little pale...but it smells great! )

I also made the lime version.


Here it is, in use by the students:

They also completed these 10 frame activities:
 I believe I've written about these in previous posts...dot the shamrock that matches the 10 frame and "Tennis Shoe 10 Frames."



Thanks for checking in and have a great evening!
