 We read Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed this week!! The kids thought about how many feet would be in the bed if all the monkeys were jumping. 

How many feet would be in the bed if your whole  family was jumping? 

Use numbers, pictures and words to explain your thinking at home and tell us what you come up with in the comments!

Cameryn, I have 5 people in my family too! Like your family, we would have 10 feet jumping in the bed. I am the only girl with older boys so I would say we have 10 BIG feet jumping in the bed!

Adrienne,
Your family would have the same number of feet in the bed as the monkeys! One difference, no monkeys in your family or.... are there?!

My family has 5 people. So 10 feet! (How did you know that Brendan?, asked Mom. Brendan answered, I just knew it right away.)

Yes, quick mental math is important! But, even with mental math I will always ask: How did you know right away? (Leave it to Mrs. DiCesare to keep asking more questions.)
