It's Hump Day!

Today we started Math Menu! I know it's only been one day but I'm LOVING it. And more importantly... the kids LOVE it! Today we explained the structure and went over the expectations. We had our first successful day of rotations!

You can grab our free BUMP games from this post! To learn more about how we run Math Menu visit this past post!

Today we also practiced our sentence writing! First we read Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers. It's such a cute story. Around the room we placed animal cards.  We set the timer for 15 minutes and the students had to walk around the room (silently!). When they came to a card they had to stop and write a silly animal sentence. Once the timer went off everyone returned to their seat, reread their sentences, and picked their favorite. Their favorite was then turned into a "final copy." Since they got such a kick out of these sentences we decided to make them into a class book!

See you back here Friday for some Five for Friday!
