Estimating Beans

Today first graders worked with a partner to estimate how many beans were in their cup.  After making their estimates and counting to find the actual amount, they then had to make an estimate of how many beans in our whole classroom (everyone's cups all together)!!!!  There were 9 cups of beans in all, and they all had about the same amount in them.  We shared our estimates and then worked together to find the actual amount of beans in our class!  Wow!  That was some pretty sophisticated math thinking!!  I think they are all ready for 2nd grade!!!
