March has so far been very wet for us here in Louisiana. But that has given me plenty of time to work on some amazing additions for my classroom! My firsties are working hard on becoming second graders and as this school year quickly passes us by they let me know how ready and eager they are to learn and be better. Love them!!

My latest addition is to shake up my Building Words/Spelling Words/Word Work/Working with Words center. Task cards!

Ok, so this isn't a new idea but it's new in my classroom this year! And I do it a little differently, with Astrobrights paper to help!

Astrobrights by Neenah cut into 3x5 cards. 
Avery 2x4 shipping labels. 

Astrobrights cardstock is amazing because it a great thickness and doesn't fade. Avery labels are just the best thing ever. I print out the task cards on the 2x4 labels and stick one on each 3x5 Astrobrights card.

I use an index card holder to store the cards. I have multiple copies of each task card so the kids can choose to work on the same task if they so choose. 

I store the task sheets in clasp envelopes and the number on the card tells the student which task sheet to use. 

Cover sheets for clasp envelopes

I also have the task cards with fun, colorful borders as well if you don't want to use labels and cardstock. 

So if you like this idea, click {HERE} for your freebie :)

Thanks and Happy Teaching!!!

We had a GREAT St. Patrick's Day!! We started the day with Face Painting! The second grade class was raising money for their field trip to the Aquarium in New Orleans. Our Second Grade teachers are amazing! Look at that talent!

We are having a BLAST learning all about Louisiana. The kiddos are really doing an amazing job with this unit. They love Louisiana!! I wanted to show what our interactive Louisiana Notebooks look like and they came out so adorably perfect that I'm giving this set away! 

Good evening to all! Just a quick jot tonight to show what we did in math today!

This is a little craftivity from my St. Patrick's Day Math bundle.

We have been working hard with decomposing numbers! Our focus right now is breaking numbers down to tens and ones. So everybody got a stack of leprechaun coins and started counting. 

We totaled our coins, divided them into tens and ones, wrote expanded form, and drew our quick tens or blocks. 
 Here are our finished Pots o' Gold!
