Pirate's Booty and a Giveaway!

Oh My.

Today was Field Day.  While it was still morning-ish and the wind was blowing, I still have a headache from being in the heat for the day...I know. Ironic since I LIVE at the beach. But in my defense, the beach has water for me to cool off in! :)

However. I have a few girls that need to remember me when they make it into the Olympics.

Seriously.

They have some M.A.D running skills!!! They FLEW passed everyone in the 400 Meter run!! I mean - I've NEVER seen girls run like this!!

As long as they remember who discovered them. :)

Tomorrow is the last day before Spring Break.

Which means I have to clear out all my cabinets and drawers....they are de-cockroaching our school over break.

Yes.

It's THAT bad.

But even worse?? The Monday when we come back.

I'm going to have a chaotic room and pod to put back together before the kiddos come in - IN ADDITION to getting ready for my day/week....pooo...

So, while doing my Pudgie Place Value centers...I noticed that my kiddos are having a hard time counting by  certain numbers - well, especially the 3s - yeesh!!

I have this game that I did with my 3rd graders for multiplication. I was trying to figure out how I could do it for my 2nd graders - but counting by numbers...instead of doing multiples.

Um....

DUH!!!

Counting by numbers IS multiples...ha!! It took my friend and her husband pointing that out to me before I realized it....haha!! Wow.

Yes, I just admitted that.

What?? I like to make things complicated. lol

Anyway, so I took that game and jazzed it up with some fabulous clip art :)


This is a fast-paced game....it really helps them with their facts....
There are no turns. As each player sees that they have a card that would go on top of the card that was last put on the pile, they put their card down. They must be fast! If another player beats them to it, they can not put down that card anymore; they have to do the next number card. Every time they put down a card, they pick one up from the upside down pile. Each time the group gets to 50, start over with 5.

What? I'm a poor teacher married to a poor firefighter. haha!

Hope y'all had a TREMENDOUS Thursday!!

(p.s...I have WAY more to share with you - and more freebies too! But I didn't want to OVER load y'all).

I want an incubator too! My kids would love it! We haven't had field day yet. But the last 4 years it had rained!! We are praying for no rain this year!!!

Thanks for posting the Booty cards for free. We started multiplication this week. 3's and 4's are hard...they can get 3, 6, 9, 12, and then they get lost. I am excited to share these games with them!!

Kristen said...

ugh, we have field day at the bitter end when it is 90-whatever degrees and humid!! You are smart to have it now :)

Sorry about your cleanup situation--it is really hard to have to go back and get everything in order that first day. Happy almost spring break!!

Thank you for not overwhelming us...hehehe..JK! I love reading your posts! And eww..cockroaches!! You have your work cut out for you - having to pack up your class a bit...but hey, look at the bright side - you get a paid vacation only after a few weeks of work...hehehe

Hope your headache feels better. Take a migraine med with caffeine in it. It works for me as long as I catch it in the early stages.

Cute. Love the pirates. Thanks.
What will you do with the chick once it hatches? It's cute for a bit... then it's a full grown chicken... then what? Our Field Day is in June. It is ALWAYS SO HOT and SOOOO LONG.
Glad they are getting rid of your cockroaches. I'd be freakin' out!
