Say it isn’t Sunday?

Seriously! Where did my weekend go? I need a rewind on this weekend, because I still have a gajillion things to do and at 10:09 in the evening, I just finished cutting out lamination, making a book center, Cricuting heads for 100 year old people and I still haven’t packed a lunch, ironed clothes or worked out.  And there is no snow in sight, so it looks like a 5 am wake-up is still in my future.  

Exhibit A: Newly cut centers
With the 100th day in our future, we’ll be practicing place value this week 
in our math center. 
 So this little center takes a chunk of the 120’s chart (Common Core) and has students identify what numbers come next and what numbers are 10 less and 10 more. It basically measures a student’s number sense and their understanding of the chart itself.  I made little numbers for students to place on the cards. I probably won’t use them, as they aren’t necessary to complete the recording sheet and they are likely to be lost, but they are included, never the less.  I started doing this a couple of years ago during calendar time, thanks to the girls at Smart Lesson Stop (cutest Smartboard calendars EVER!). But my kiddos have never really done this independently.  So here it is. Yours for the taking. Just click the picture below.
There was a highlight to my crazy, quick weekend…  
{Not too shabby for an almost 5 year old photographer}
I FINALLY met my super sweet bloggy friend Abby and her adorable pumpkin Beckham. 
Let me just tell you folks, I felt like we’d known each other for years. She’s adorable and I seriously could have gabbed with her for hours. Our boys hit is off as well. Batman and Spiderman united and had a blast.  I will let you know that she wasn’t rockin’ the unitard, but she was amazing just the same.  LOVE HER! The best part is…we get to hang out again soon at our bloggy meet up! SO excited.  
PS. If you haven’t RSVP’d to the evite, please do.  
Well…this girl still has a list of to do’s, so I gotta go.  
I guess Monday isn’t going to disappear as fast as this weekend did.
Oh..and Abby
This one’s for you and Becks: 
  Heroes in a half-shell…TURTLE POWER!

  1. Speaking of Superheroes, it seems like y'all have the Blog Superheroes lined up for next weekend. You, Abby, Amanda from One Extra Degree…I can't wait to see who else shows up in your All-Star lineup. It'll be like watching the Oscars from my computer in Boston! Have a great week.
