Wow! It has been a long time since I have blogged, 16 days. Oh my! I can only blame the craziness December brings. Then add a cold on top of it all and wow! Well I am back now, even if it is just for a quick post. It's a start.
OK, the week before Christmas break and a full moon! That is just cruel. However, I can make it! Just 3 more days.
I have been super busy at school doing many great things. I have been taking pictures and promise to share soon.
We are doing tens and ones in math. I put together a quick and easy center for the kids and they have loved it. I gave them a basket of snap cubes and cup with foam circles. On the foam circles, I wrote different numbers between 1-120. The kids pick a circle from the cup and then use the cubes to make that number using 10 rods and single cubes. Their partner checks it and if it is right they get to keep the circle. Then the next student picks a circle. Sometimes the easiest things are their favorites and most effective.
