So, I have to tell you about my favorite thing included in the pack. It's called Find Your Mate. The students make pirate hats (since this pack is pirate themed). You give them a number and one of the following cards: base ten blocks, number form, expanded form, or word form. They have to write their number on the front of their hat in the form you gave them. I had mine do it on scrap paper first before they wrote on their hat so I could check.
They then have to silently walk around and find the rest of their group that has the same number as them just in the other forms. Their group will have 4 members when they finish.
I had mine use a thumbs up/down to let the other students know if they thought they belonged together or not.
I told them to lock arms when they found a match so they wouldn't lose each other.
Then they had to wait with their group for everyone to finish.
There are cards in the packet for this part but I forgot to print them. Oops. So we just used thumbs up/down again. The other groups check to make sure each group is right.
After all groups were found they then wrote the other ways to represent their number on their hat. My kids L-O-V-E-D this activity.
Here are some of the other things in the packet.
An accordion book to show expanded and standard form.
Cards that can be used as a concentration type game or go fish.
A board game to practice expanded and word form.
There are other activities too that cover greater than less than and skip counting. I also threw in 6 place value mini posters. Click on the picture to be taken to the item in my shop.
I am wanting to offer something special to anyone that purchases this packet any time from today through Sunday (October 27th). If you do, send me your TPT user name (comment below or email me at email@example.com) and I will send you any item from my TPT shop that is $5 or less. Just tell me the name of the product you want and your email address.
In other news, I mentioned a few weeks ago that we had recently moved and I just have to leave you with some pics of my new place. I had a girl's night with the girls from my small group at Church and they said they felt like they were walking through Pinterest. Which is ironic since I decorated my house with millions of ideas I found on Pinterest. Ha!!
IN LOVE with my chevron kitchen. (I made the curtains for all of my windows)
My DIY crate coffee table with my cutie patootie dog, Tucker posing on the couch.
My hubby made the baby gate. Sad thing is there is not one at the top of the steps so it kinda defeats the purpose. He made this one and then for some reason moved on to other things. Hmmm that reminds me I need to remind him about this little half-finished project of his.
And last but not least, my favorite part of the house with my, yep you guesses it, DIY burlap wreath. I was thrilled with the way this came together.
