    Gold or other colored construction paper


      Make a Big Black Pot on Tagboard and Laminate.
    Have children cut out circles out of gold construction paper for coins (You could also let the children choose a different color for their coin, then you could work on color recognition). You may have to have circles already drawn for them to cut out.


      Blind fold one child at a time and twirl them 3 times or more. The rest of the class can count the twirls.
      Each child can try several times.
      Count how many coins end up in the pot.
      Talk about where the other coins end up (above, below, under, next to, etc….)
    Have fun!
