1  29.1 Compare Weights  Get a variety of objects and have your student compare which ones are heavier. 
2  29.2 Graphing  Get candy such as a pack of skittles or M and M's and have your student sort them by color. Ask them to create a bar graph showing the data they collected in their Math notebook. 
3  29.3 Sorting Letters  Have your student create a 3 column chart in their math notebook. The titles of the columns should be curved lines, straight lines, and both. Have them sort all of the upper case and lowercase letters of the alphabet into each column based on which category they fit in. 
4  29.4 Estimating Time  As your student goes throughout their day have them estimate how much time passes between transitions. For example, when did they start Math, when did it end? How much time passed? 
5  29.5 Mental Subtraction  Have your student record the strategies they learned to mentally subtract.
