Her-"That color--I mean is that your natural color" lol---where is this conversation going?
Me-"Well, yeah, minus the highlights."
Her--"So that gray is your highlight?" AHHHH!!---guess it's time to get my roots done lol ;)
Me--thinking (but not saying) no honey, that's not supposed to be there. I sprout a new gray hair every time y'all choose to act up....
Gotta love their honesty, eh?
Okay, so today's math lesson was going really well......or so I thought. We watched a video, we did a few sample problems, we worked on the front and back together---they all seemed to be doing really well. Then, my boys....uh....I don't get it. EGADS! Those words hurt my ears...so we worked through some more, did a little one-on-one, small group, retaught and modeled it again.....they just smiled at me like I was a crazy woman. ....which I am, but that's beside the point....so tonight I made a practice sheet to make sure they get it. My kiddos LOVE rolling dice. So here's a quick review sheet if you wanna download it. It's on tens, ones, and expanded form. I demonstrate expanded form like it's an elastic band. It STRETCHES out the whole number. We even put numbers on the band so they could see the "longer form." Here's hoping for a better math day tomorrow----and I need to get my "do" done apparently!
Click the pic for the practice sheet. Just remember, comments are so sweet!! :)
Earlier this summer, I posted a football workstation for both math and language. I thought with Super Bowl coming up, maybe you'd want to check it out! Click the picture below to download.
