Pajama Party Math

Pajama Party Math

Our recent PJ party gave us lots of opportunities to practice math skills in interesting ways! During Greeting Meeting, we took notice of everyone's cool slippers. We formed categories like animal slippers, sports slippers, character slippers, fuzzy slippers, and "other", and then spent some time sorting ourselves and helping each other figure out which category our slippers belonged in (categorizing is an important language and literacy skill, too!). Then, we lined up to see which kind of slippers had the most and least amounts, and counted to determine tie breakers.
