Place-Value Fun! and a Little Bit of Blends….

We are off to a busy start to the 2014-15 school year!  So hard to believe we've been in school for 5 weeks already.

This week we are focusing a lot on 3 digit place-value.  Here are a few things we've been working on:

I LOVE Marshmallow Place-Value from Babbling Abby.  You can grab your own copy from her website.

Next up, we extended our learning with the AIMS Activity: Basic-ic Buildings.  My class couldn't believe I was letting them "build" with the base-ten blocks:)

 Our Phonics / Spelling focus in Journey's this week was reading and writing words with Consonant Blends.  So I created this little activity to glue in our interactive notebooks.  

To start off the lesson we formed partners by matching up consonant blends with word parts.  You can find that activity here: Mixing Up Some Word Fun created by Sam Nowak on TPT.  Then they worked in pairs to come up with word blends to complete their "Flower Foldables."

I am working on creating an Interactive Notebook to match the 2nd Grade Journey's Reading Program.**
