As I mentioned, we are working on skip counting and money identification for the next two weeks. One of the things we created the first day we started talking about this is a word problem Bag book. My kids LOVED this. It was simply some word problems and each word problem got bigger by 5. Here is an example below. They would read the word problem, use stickers to solve it, and their work would become a little pull-out answer for each problem. I'll post more later about how I made these...just know they are a HIT!
Below are some more pictures of the centers and activities going on around our room. We are having a blast. Be sure to visit my teachers pay teachers and teachers notebook stores to get some awesome literacy centers for Penguins and Winter. I am working on a center for the New Years theme. Hope to have it posted soon. Happy Holidays!!
