This Plus That, Kindergarten Style

My Kindergarten Friends and I enjoyed Amy Krouse Rosenthal's new book, This Plus That, this week.

Thank you to everyone who entered my This Plus That Giveaway.
I loved reading all of your creative equations!

After reading the book we decided to try writing our own little equations. The children did an AMAZING job with this. 

First, we brainstormed a list of ideas together. 

Next, each student tried writing their own equations. They really enjoyed playing with different ideas and words. It was wonderful to hear students brainstorming and sharing their ideas with one another.

Finally, students chose their favorite equations to publish.
