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 heard that some of you can't find them at your Dollar Tree...
Check this link out...
maybe they'll send them to the store to avoid postage???

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.
