Estimating is fun! You should break out into song!

I just wanted to share with you this adorable song that my students have been singing lately. Now, I am so not taking credit for it. This was written by a lovely lady named Bobbie Williams. She teaches at a school in the same cluster as mine. She collaborated on this book years ago. My wonderful team mates shared this with me about two weeks ago... so of course I made an anchor chart!

You sing this to the tune of B-I-N-G-O. There is also an adorable estimation jar book that I forgot to take a picture of... I really wish I could share the copy with you. But it essentially is a cover shaped like a jar and identical pages where the students record their estimation, the actual number and a drawing. I have taught my students to draw small circles (easy for everyone to draw) in groups of ten that they circle. Then they draw the ones without circling them. I am forever impressed by my student's!!
