Counting tens and ones

I was inspired to make these task cards by one of my students. He stared at the computer screen forever while taking the MAP! He just could not count the big number of tens and ones.  I think it was 93.  I used the cat as a prop because the cards have a pet theme. He didn't like it and tried to bite one of the cards. Click on the picture to look at it.

Summer School

We decided to have some fun with volcanoes during summer school.  We did the science experiment with the baking soda and vinegar. The volcano was very easy to make. I got the idea here. Then we did an art project. We had a great time!

Summer School

I have been teaching summer school. This year they had a mini session. It was 3 weeks and 3 days a week.  They wanted  the kids to have some experience this summer. I think it was shorten because of the budget crisis in Illinois. We had a great time. I taught kindergarten. I teach second grade during the regular year. I forgot how much fun and how funny  kindergarten students can be. We focused on dinosaurs because at the end of the session we went to the zoo and saw the dinosaur exhibit.
