My kids and I are getting settled into a routine and getting used to each other. Things seems to have calmed down, most testing is done (with the exception of DIBELS) which is being completed this week, and I am ready to go!
We've been working on the new standard for 2nd grade...working with numbers to 1,000 by counting, skip-counting, reading and writing the numbers. My students had a ball working on these last week.
I had severeal sentence strips with our previous standards listed on them. They were a huge stack and I couldn't bring myself to just toss them (you know how we teachers are!), so, instead, I let my students paste their "Mini Hundreds Charts to 1,000" on them instead.
It took a little over 2 strips per student. They really enjoyed getting to spread out all over the floor.
After they had them all pasted, we skip-counted by 5's, 10's and 100's to 1,000.
As we skip-counted, we colored the numbers.
Here they are all finished. These are going to be our "cheat sheets" to use tomorrow as we write numbers 1-1,000. These had all the numbers filled in.

On the home front...remember, I can't stand to get rid of stuff!!! :-( So, when this firepit got the bottom busted out from a hail storm, I decided to make it into a flower pot! Now, I've got a decorative, large, terra cotta flower pot in my flower bed.
I'm feeling pretty cool, calm and collected after the long weekend.
Check back often this week to see what all we're up to. Are you back on an even-keel yet?
