Our first Scholastic Order of the year arrived!!!!!! It was SO exciting to add so many awesome books to our classroom, and my first-grade friends loved taking home their new reads. Plus, with books I purchased for our library, we were able to snag the 10,000 bonus points offered this month!! #nevertoomanybooks
We have been making 10 all week, and we are rocking it out! We’ve been focusing on the hands-on this week and will be transitioning to the more abstract this coming week. The subtilizing we did earlier in the year, really helped as we started using ten frames this week. #smallvictory
Yesterday, I arrived home to 2 Amazon Packages and my initial thought was, “Oh no. What did I buy?!?” Being single and childless, my classroom-spending habits have a tendency to escalate in August/September. BUT….this time it wasn’t me – woohoo! A few months ago, I signed-up for the Reddit Gift Teacher Exchange and was blessed with these awesome listening-center resources for free. It was a fabulous surprise and I’m so thankful. I added these bad boys to our iPods last night and cannot wait to share them with my friends on Monday. We have a lot of thank-you notes to write!
Well, friends, it has been a really exciting week! I’ll be back tomorrow to share about our adventures to 120. 🙂 Happy day!
