LEGO Challenges & Snowman Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago my 6-year-old was having a meltdown and I had her sit down with me and just quietly put together LEGOs and it was awesome!  She calmed down and we were able to talk through the incident and I gave birth to an idea for my small math groups: LEGO Challenges!
I wanted my students to use LEGOs creatively yet with some structure, so I created 30 task cards and a checklist for students to keep track of which ones they try and complete.
I love to take pictures of students with their finished creations and put them on my website so families can see what we're up to.

And now on to tastier things: snowman cupcakes!  I bought some really cool silicone cupcake molds (on Ebay) to use with our snowman unit. I finally tried them out at home and they turned out so well!
I sprayed them with cooking spray just in case...

They came out SOOOOO easily!

You can find them on Ebay and they're super affordable!
