Marshmallows and a little celebration!


Today we did my Marshmallow Math

But, there was a problem.

Apparently, there are TONS of new moons!!! They made moons in EVERY COLOR! lol. I don't know WHY they feel the need to change the marshmallows ALL the time. BUT, we figured it out. I just had them sort by COLOR and PRETEND the red moons are actually red BALLOONS.

Yeah. Some didn't get it. BUT, we prevailed. lol.


They sorted and tallied.... then added them all up.

Then they "bar-graphed"



and compared and subtracted.

Then they wrote sentences.



There is more to finish on Monday!


AND, I want to brag on one of my little students!  I have about HALF my class that has passed all their addition AND subtraction quizzes and are on their multiplication!!! I know!!! I'm super stoked! Well, today, one of my little kiddos passed his x12's!!!!!!


He's moving on to skills like squared, cubed, square root, fractions....

And THIS is why I love doing these timed quizzes. Because I can help to "push" those kids further than they would ever go otherwise.

Check out my packs - I have an Addition/Subtraction pack and a Multiplication and Beyond pack.

I've always sold them separately, I don't know why I never bundled them, so now they're bundled!




Ok, I'm off to veg on the computer. I am UTTERLY exhausted. And SICK! And both my girls are too. They both fell asleep around 5:00 because they're so tired and sick. 
Stupid daylight savings. NEVER fails. THIS is always the week I get sick since I don't get enough sleep. I THINK we're actually going to be voting on whether or not to keep the time changing ordeal in November! I VOTE to STOP changing the time!! I don't care WHICH way they keep it, just stop changing it - PUH-LEEEEZ!!

Ok. G'Night.

It drives me crazy how they keep changing the marshmallows! That's why I stopped doing that activity - my worksheet never matched. Boo!

Hope you feel better!

I blogged about how much I love your Tasty Math facts pack today. Most of my kids have moved on to subtraction. I haven't decided if I should move on to multiplication. I only have maybe 1 or 2 that I think could do it. Thanks for creating such a great product!
