“Yeah, I’m starving.”
“I bet you are. You didn’t eat anything while you were sick. What sounds good?”
“Because I’m so hungry, I’m gonna have to go with a really, really, really big Popsicle.”
Since I never liked math growing up, I really am trying hard to teach my children good math habits. The reason most people don’t like math doesn’t have to to with the real way that mathematicians think about numbers. I remember 4th grade math we had to memorize the times tables. We had to take a timed test and it started with the 1X and every time that you passed one of the tests, you got a cut out shape of ice cream scoop put on the cone with your name on it.

I was in the grocery store recently and happened upon these brightly colored clothespins. I just loved them and knew I could use them for an activity. You don’t need to have colored clothespins for this preschool math activity. Any clothespins you have on hand will work.
You will need:
“Before you make your wish you’re supposed to say, ‘Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.’”
