First of all, I ♥ Teacher Tipster! I saw this idea on his site: Power Towers. You've gotta watch the video if you haven't seen it. I've had it on my list of things to do - even had the Pringles cans saved. Then, on Pinterest yesterday I saw this cutie patootie idea for covering the Pringles can from Grade Two Zoo:
I LOVED the poem and design she had on the math can so I just had to "borrow it". I decided to go ahead and make my cans. I made the one for Math - and I also made up another one for Reading - I even made up a little poem for the reading can to go with her math can.
The Pringles cans come in two sizes - one is taller than the other. I originally got the taller cans but they were too tall, there was too much space left after putting the cups in. I went back and got the shorter cans (4.93 ounces) and they work great! You will need to trim the top and sides of the pages just a little to make the pages fit on the cans - easy peasy!

Can't wait to use these in centers next year!
