I have a new love. Un amor muy profundo. It’s round, colorful, versatile….fun. What is it? It’s not my husband or my dog, although I love them both dearly. It’s….the….bottle cap! I love each and every one! I literally salivate (I really hate using that word, but I’m too lazy to go to thesaurus.com) at the sight of milk jugs, soda bottles, peanut butter jars, and shampoo bottles, and I can’t wait to yank their caps off. I have found so many uses for bottle caps this year in my classroom, and I’m sure my school thinks of me as the Bottle Cap Nut, but I really can’t help it! Maybe I need an intervention (my husband would probably agree). By the way, did you catch my Answer Keepers bottle cap post?
So, anyways, what’s my point? Charity Preston from the OC Blog has been kind enough to allow me to guest blog for her during the 2011-2012 school year, so my first post of course is about bottle caps. And monsters. And math. And a nice little freebie at the end.
So, please click the monsters below and check it out. It’s a fun, green activity, just in time for the Halloween season.
