Math groups in August

Hi Friends! August has been crazy lately. We started on the 3rd so we have been back for a little bit. We have not finished MAP testing, so I haven't made my math groups yet so I am just sneaking in rotating groups here and there to test their math group skills. Today was all about numbers!

Yesterday, I introduced the kiddos to Math Slide 100. It is a great app and the kids love it!

Next, my sweeties did the cut and paste I made for number matching. See previous post to grab this for free!

Last, the students did my favorite free center, a 100's chart cut into puzzles! They LOVE them! I cut each color differently, and the kids just eat this center up!

Hope you are all having a wonderful August!

Back to School 2015

Hello Friends! It is back to school time and I have been so overwhelmed! How is everyone's August? Are you back yet? We have been back for two weeks and I am loving my students. Our schedule has changed, so that is something that I am getting used to, but it will start working soon enough!

 This week we started our number talks and I made this smart board activity. It was really easy to make, and the kids loved it! I plan on changing it throughout the year as we get to harder numbers.

I also made this little cut and paste for next week and I wanted to share it with you! I hope you all are having a wonderful beginning of the year!

Bulletin Boards

Today I am linking up with Schroeder's Shenanigans in Second and Lucky Little Learners to post about my bulletin boards!

This is my unit focus board. I added my brag tags to this board. 

This board is our classroom jobs board. It is a very small bulletin board!

This is our ELA focus board. Each board includes the standard, essential question, vocabulary, anchor charts and an excellent example of what we are learning about.

Our Math focus board.

Thanks for visiting, my brag tag board will be up soon!
