I am linking up to Tara's monthly "Monday Made it," even though it took me until Wednesday to finish. I saw these "Vocabulators" on Tara's blog, 4th Grade Frolics, and I knew I had to make some. I learned how to dye rice from reading Tara's link to Melissa Forney's blog, and also from watching some videos on YouTube.

Then, I dyed the rice and waited for it to dry completely. I could hardly wait for it to dry, because I wanted to add the cutesy things to each of my themed containers. =)
|Containers for my Math Vocabulators|
The words that are inside each of my containers go along with the Math chapters we have been working through. So there are words about Place Value, Rounding, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, and so on. When kids find a word, they can write the definition, illustrate it or use it in an example they come up with. I am looking forward to Geometry when we have a ton of new vocabulary words!!!
Here are some pictures of each of my themed Math Vocabulators.

I loved making these! I can't wait for my 4th graders to use them during Math. =)
