Today is the last day to enter my Weekend Wishlist Giveaway for the fabulous Maggie Tote! The winner will be announced tomorrow morning!
Let's link up to share what happened in our classrooms this week. Me first! :)
In math, we are working on our place value unit. Students practiced writing expanded form by playing "Bull's Eye" using a target and paperclips. They wrote their scores in expanded form (ex. 100+30+2=132).
Take a 2-pocket folder. Cut a semi-circle shape ABOVE the inside pockets.
Cut down the fold along the white semi-circles (in pic above) so it creates two flaps. Fold flaps down.
Use velcro dots to secure flaps down so that they create pockets that can open and close. I got these Velcro mini-dots that worked PERFECTLY at Wal-Mart in the craft section.
Print labels that say "Practice" and "Mastered" to go on each pocket. You can download mine here!
Reptiles - onion sack to represent scales
Amphibians - wax paper to represent smooth, moist skin
Birds - craft feather to represent feathers
Fish - onion sack to represent scales
Insects - a piece from a hard plastic 3-ringed folder to represent an exoskeleton

I ended my week by taking one of my SWEET students to Frankie's Fun Park for putt-putt, bowling, and games! She won a date with me from the silent auction at our school's carnival. It was a fun time and a perfect ending to the week! She won over 2,000 tickets and insisted on buying me something with them - a Gamecock Hello Kitty! I'm pretty sure it's going to bring my Cocks good luck tomorrow...maybe I'll take it to the game -ha! Gotta love those sweet students! ;)
