The 3-Container Estimation Routine
Hi Steve. My class LOVES these 3-container estimation activities! I love how it takes the estimation clipboard to the next level! I’m just wondering if you will be posting more? Thanks so much!
Hi, Kelly. Yes, I plan to make at least 4 more. Thank you for sharing how much your class love them!
Hi Steve, My MS students in Korea love all of your puzzles. Thanks so much for all of your hard work!
Hi, Konna. Thank you so much for sharing this. I love hearing that your students are enjoying them!
There is definitely a problem because there is no link to download the 5/10 3 containers estimation problem. Ana
Hi, Ana. Can you try again now? Even though I could see it here, I think it took a must have taken a bit for the cache to clear this time.
Thank you, a trillion times, for all these amazing resources!!!!! I am so grateful. My children love all of them and can’t get enough. I teach Grade 3 (8 and 9 year olds).
Hi, Loraine. Thank you for the kind words, and greetings from Oregon in the U.S. where we are just entering into the fall and anticipating winter. I’m so glad to hear how much your student love them.
I also can’t access the 3 container estimation for Oct 5.
Thanks for your work, I live using your resources
Hi, Michelle. Here is the link to the page – and then the link to download the file is listed under October 5.
I hope that answers your question. Thank you!
Where is the link to use this?
Hi, Jennifer. The download link is the blue link just below where it says Monday, October 3.
I’m having trouble opening my download as well. I do not wish to use the 3rd party search engine and am hoping there is another way
Hi, Melinda. When you scroll down to Monday, October 3, you’ll see the blue download link beneath it. The link says, “3-Container Estimation Routine – Sets 1 and 2”
Here’s the link to the post where you’ll see it when you scroll down. https://stevewyborney.com/2022/10/the-3-container-estimation-routine/
So excited. You are amazing and I am greatly appreciative of your dedication and sharing.
I would really like to get this resource. Maybe I am having a slow Sunday, but I don’t understand how to download it. I have watched the youtube video and I have looked at the “Downloadables” page. Where is the link to download? Thank you for putting this together!
Hi, Jaime. I cleared the cache so it should be showing up now. Thank you so much for taking a look at it!
