Guess The Mystery Number

Lately Maths have become a huge deal around here.

 Working with the Sandpaper Numbers and Number Rods are certainly paying off well for them.

Since the Math shelves have been getting a lot of attention I have been creating some original work of my own, that I must admit that they are loving:)

I found this bank with a fun combination lock on clearance at Target for just $5.88. 

The cool thing about this combination lock is that you can set the number yourself. This inspired me to make  the Guess The Mystery Number work.

  The clue is how many pennies are in the dish on the tray.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

 The child counts the pennies as they are putting them in the bank.
 Then they turn the dial to find the number.
Their reward is huge when they have discovered the mystery number and unlock the door, because they get to do it all over again, and again.                                                                         
                                            
We have had wonderful math related conversations since this work has been introduced. Most importantly the children are discovering how numbers are relevant to them.

  1. Oh my, look at all the spam. I keep getting those too ever since I turned off captcha and approval.

    What a lovely work! I need to head to target to find that bank! Genius. My younger one would love it! Can you work with numbers more than 10 on this?

    1. I think as I soon as I find the time I'll put captcha back in full effect!!

      You can only use numbers up to 10, but we will add number sentence work to this, or addition and subtraction slips equaling the mystery number would be fun too.
