Place Value Blocks Organized!!


This week we have working on place value...
This summer I purchased these containers at the Dollar Tree ($1) and
getting place value blocks has never been nicer!!!
I have 14 sets (partners share)... clean up was swift, blocks were organized and the process was quick.
Definitely a good purchase!!

I was going to add a label to the boxes, however, they even look nice without and it is pretty explanatory what's inside ;) Cross it off my list!!

Pumpkin Math for the Day


One of my favorite fall activities... one that I have done for YEARS!!!
Depending on the class... some years I invite the kids to bring in a pumpkin... sometimes I just pick up 4 or 5 and have them work together in teams to measure, weigh, compare, count and decorate their orange sphere.  When time permits... I carve their pumpkins and place glow sticks inside for a fun effect and decoration for our school wide Halloween parade. It always amazes me how many kids have NEVER carved a pumpkin.

When the timer goes off the groups SCOOT to the next activity.
Their ticket out the door is their completed booklet.
 
I love having another assessment to see their
 understanding of the math standard of the week.

Behavioral Issues???

We all have or have had the student that tries our patience to the bitter end...

did you make a difference in his or her life?
did he or she have any academic growth during the year?

If you knew a SIMPLE, EASY strategy to fix the negative behavior
would you try it?

It's my goal for next week!!


Angela Watson shared her findings and teacher's results...
