Number Freebies

Hi all! It's been a week since my last post but I've been a little busy.
I took a little road trip with my hubby to beautiful Lake Tahoe! Wow, was it gorgeous!! Now I'm  rested, relaxed, and ready to get to work. I'm heading back to my classroom on Monday to get things ready for the new year.

I've been doing a lot of work on math this summer because our district is implementing the new core this year.
Number sense! Number sense! Number sense!

That's the BIG focus for first grade. Whenever there is a curriculum change I have a struggle with what to keep and what to let go of. Do any of you have that problem? I have lots of games and lessons that I love but I've found some really cute, fun, new ones. So what of my old ones do I keep and what new ones do I embrace. Sometimes I just wish I could do them all. Our district is really good about not making us teach a textbook but encourages us to teach the core and gives us many resources. I LOVE that concept. The only problem is deciding from all the great resource what to use. Our team has meet several times this summer to hash out our new math map and I think it's all coming together. I'm getting excited to try out new things and new ideas!

Here's a little something I'm using at the beginning of the year after I teach and review 'Ways to show a number'.

P.S. I'm soooo excited to attend the Utah Bloggers Meet Up tomorrow. Can't wait to meet all the cool teachers and blogger in Utah! Hope to have pictures in my next post!
