Holy smokes! It's finally here...one of my favorite times of year....OCTOBER! I am linking up with Farley to share this month's Currently with you.
My house is empty at the moment. Everyone is at sports practice. It is a little strange actually. I am not sure what to do with myself.
I LOVE Fall and everything about fall. It is still a little warm here. But I am SO looking forward to bustin' out my boots and scarves soon.
I just found out Starbucks has brought back their salted caramel mochas!! That brought a smile to my lips. I must get one NOW.
I can't wait for the leaves to start changing colors and the cool weather to arrive. It is such a beautiful time of year.
I am in the middle of parent conferences right now. As much as I like meeting all the parents, it is so exhausting. I can't wait until Friday afternoon!
Here is a special TREAT for all of you. I am part of an incredible giveaway over at Table Talk with C & C. They are hosting a Best Seller Math Linky and Giveaway. Head on over and check out all the great math prizes. If you win, you will get my best selling Measuring Up unit!
I wanted to share a fun place value activity I did with my kiddos today. I got the idea, last year, from First Grade Wow.
We are currently working on place value to 100, but I have some math whizzes. So, I kicked it up a notch and some of the kids chose numbers up to 1000. I gave them the choice. If they felt comfortable, they could choose a larger number than 100. They loved tracing over their work with a black felt tip marker. That is a special treat for them! Enjoy!
Make sure to link up with Farley and let us all know what you are currently up to for October!
