Gatti's Gatti's We're All Going to Gatti's....

It was a fun treat to go out to Mr. Gatti's with some good friends. Enjoyed some yummy pizza, and most of all, enjoyed feeling like kids again playing the games. Chad and I scored 150 tickets and walked away with a toy we will give to Victoria later.
At school lately, we have been studying "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" to go along with our Basal series. We did a really fun activity that did not take long. I can even remember doing this when I was in first grade!
We became "archeologists" digging up chocolate chips from a cookie. They each dug out all of the chocolate chips they could, sorted them, counted them, tallied them, then graphed them! The kids loved it and they did great! **18 chocolate chips were found in the most cookies** Since I'm not putting pictures of my students up, here is my example:
