|Equal, Lesser and Greater Gator!|
I had too much fun with my Cricut last night! The result is a great work station. My students loved working with their Greater Gators and playing cards to generate greater than an less than sentences. If someone got an equal... I did the "Equal Dance" with the gator named Equal! I got a little suspicious when many of my workers drew cards that were equal. I took it as a compliment to my dancing skills...hee hee hee! They'll never forget that equal means the same.
The day started out a little rough because I forgot the anchor poem chart that I had written at
home. . . GRRR(eater!) Luckily my room connects with the 7th and 8th grade room and they were more than happy to read with my first graders while I drove the one mile to my house and back with my great(er) poem. The best thing of all was that when I returned they were disappointed and wanted to keep reading. Task master that I am, we had to move on to greater things!

With Big Sums children recorded with big pencils the sum to three addends. They love using these giant pencils that I found on clearance at Target!
I love hearing kids saying to each other, "This is the best day ever!" After the rather bumpy start to my morning I didn't expect it to turn around, but first graders are AMAZING people. They are loving, forgiving and honest. I am so blessed to be able to spend time with them. Today ended up being a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my joy!!
