We’ve got a BIG day ahead of us…our first (and possibly only) full day of school this week! Monday was a surprise snow day, yesterday was an early release for ice, and tomorrow we’re expecting a MAJOR snowstorm.
We teach an extended day and students are in school from 7:40-4:15-ish. Most do very well, but disruptions to our schedule are pretty tough. I work with students with autism and they are most definitely struggling 🙁 I love having snow days to catch up on all my work, but I recognize we also need to get back to routine!
Yesterday, I posted one of my students warming up with my newest rhyming cards:
I displayed four cards to read, then asked my students to find the two words that matched. I kept mixing them up, but the student above was able to identify the pair every time. Next, I had him explain how he knew they rhymed (“because they have the same ending sound”). He did really well with the rhymes, but didn’t seem to realize nor care the eggs were green!
I also updated my bundle to include this blank template:
Today we’ll be using the rhyming cards again and then generating new rhymes using a dry erase marker on the cards (laminated) above. It’s always so fun to hear what my students come up with!
If you’ve already purchased the bundle (thank you!), please redownload to get the latest update.
We are about halfway through our Place Value Unit. My students can identify double-digit numbers and tens and ones, but comparing numbers seems difficult and I detect a little guessing. I’ve never had this much trouble in the past, so this weekend I will definitely do some research and brainstorm new ideas!
I’m using two of my products this week:
Last week, we used these cards for number identification. Next, we played a few rounds of “Blast!” with the cards. Now, we’re playing “Slap!”…”Please slap the number 27” or “Please slap the number that is greater than…” A lot of fun and helpful for building up fluency!
I just love the action shot on the top right 🙂
I’m also heavily dipping into:
This packet includes EVERYTHING I use to teach place value. I updated it last spring to 110 pages and I have a feeling I’ll be updating it again with more practice comparing numbers.
I’m putting this packet on sale through tomorrow night, only $4.00!

I’m also linking up with Primary Chalkboard for a FANTASTIC new weekly linky:
