Learning Math

I saw this idea on Facebook and made one of these math helper games up this morning.
                      I will replace the cardboard piece with a craft stick as soon as I can find mine.
                                  This seems like a fun way to learn addition and subtraction.

To use, just have the child place the correct clothes pins on the cardboard or craft stick for the addition or subtraction problem you give them.
This math tool can easily be stored in a zip lock bag.
I printed the numbers on both sides of the clothespin to save time when setting up.

40 bags in 40 days

Starting tomorrow, I am doing a challenge. I'm going to try my best to declutter for the next 40 days. A bag a day. It's perfect timing because our extension unit is having a rummage sale at the Mathis public library in April 8th. I'll be killing two birds with one stone or a whole flock of birds with forty bags. 
I've challenged my husband to do this in the sheds. 
Anyone else want to do this challenge with me? It can be big bags or small bags. Anything you do is a step in the right direction. You can post before and after pictures on my page. 
Let's do this.

I emptied 8 of these little bins and put labels on some I'm keeping.  I'm also organizing so I will be able to find things easier.

I got a jump on this and went ahead and started today because I have a meeting tomorrow morning.  If I accidently do more than 40 bags it sure wont be a bad thing.
