Pots of Gold Segmenting FREEBIE!

What a crazy day today! We had a lock down for an hour and a half due to someone on the High School campus next door who was reported to have a gun. So scary! This happened at lunchtime, so my kiddies were stuck in the cafeteria without me. When I got back to them, they all hugged me and told me how much they missed me and how scared they were. My poor babies! I just wanted to cry! But the police were awesome and showed up right away. I'm so glad no one got hurt today!

In other news, here's a quick freebie for you! I found some of these plastic shamrock coins at the local craft store and I just had to use them for something! I'm using these in my small groups this week to practice segmenting. We use them like Elkonin boxes - the kids put their coins on the pot, then they slide a coin into each box as we say the sounds in the word (you could also use pennies, counters, or yellow circle die cuts).

  1. Thanks for the freebie. I have some "lucky coins" myself that I found at Big Lots. Of course, I had to buy like five packages. I am currently using them at a math center. However, I will be stealing some for this activity.

    Thanks for sharing.


    1. You're welcome! I have some at a math center too - we use them for counting with those little plastic pots and also for addition.

  2. ohmygoodness!!! your poor little babies! it makes me feel sick when I hear of things like that happening. we are pretty lucky here in Australia and have not as yet had anything with guns happen in schools! I love reading your blog and have used many of your ideas in my classroom!
