Better Late Than Never

With all the Halloween excitement yesterday we forgot to count the Halloween treats in our Estimating Jar. Today the grade 3’s shared their counting and estimating strategies and we determined that there were 113 candies in the jar. Sarah’s estimate of 103 was the closest. The treats were shared amongst students and Sarah had some leftover to take home. I wonder what will turn up in the Estimating Jar next. How will having a benchmark help students estimate in November?
