Today was a much better day! Sorry for the whining yesterday. We started our plant unit and planted seeds today. Even though it was still bad weather and we had to get messy inside with the dirt and all, my kiddos loved it and they were pretty well behaved.
In math we have been reviewing a lot. Some of the time we spent with greater and less than. So here is a little activity I'm putting in Math Stations for more practice. Very easy, hardly any prep. You roll 2 dice to make the numbers. We used 10-sided dice but you could use a 1-6 especially in the beginning. We also had one player roll one dice and the other player roll the other dice and together they decided what the number should be. We talked about cooperation and playing together. It worked well.

HERE to read it) about why it went better this year than other years. I think because of two things. I taught 10 more 10 less after a very big place value unit. More of the kids understood tens and ones in a number. Also, in the debrief portion of the lesson yesterday some of the kiddos noticed the patterns (34-44-54) and that the tens place had changes by one. This was a BIG ah-ha for some of the firsties.
Anywho, I hope you have a great Thursday tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found something that you can use.
