A Plethora of Place-Value

I am dreading having to get up tomorrow for my first day back. Thank goodness it is an in-service day so if when I am a zombie it won't matter too much. I may need to bring my Keurig to school to keep up with the massive amounts of caffeine my body will require to get through.

 We are starting place value this week so I made an I Have, Who Has game. Do you play this game with your students? I time us every time we play and we try to beat our best time.

CCSS 1.NBT.2 Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts
of tens and ones.

Click HERE to grab a copy for only $1.50 in my store.

In my math tubs I am putting my Place-Value Go Fish game ($2)

and my Prehistoric Place-Value ($2) which is similar to Race to 100. It includes 2 versions to differentiate, one using unifix cubes and one that requires exchanging units for rods.
I always give a copy of a new packet away but today I thought I'd change things up a little a play Pin It to Win It. Pin these items to one of your Pinterest Boards and I will pick 3 lucky winners!

I also need to announce the winner of my Around the World packet is Cherie Mae Ong!
  Off to go change my nail polish, again. I got adventurous and tried Opening Night and it chipped after just one day!

 I don't get it. I bought Sephora by OPI so it isn't cheap and I used 2 coats and put the quick dry top coat on, too. What the heck am I doing wrong? Now I remember why I usually give up trying to be fashionable. I think I need a support group. Hello, my name is Jenn, and I am fashion-challenged.

;-) Later, friends.



  1. I love that nail polish color! Bummer that it chipped!! I've started doing no chip manicures. I know they're not good for your nails supposedly, but they last me three weeks...amazing!! :)

  2. Your nails are beautiful...I cannot wear polish during the school year as with all the papers I touch AND my brittle nails to begin with, I am doomed!

  3. Love bright nail polish!! I usually go for the blues and greens on my toes!!!

  4. Mine always chip so I get fake ones. :) I just bought the new "Casino Royale" from OPI in the James Bond line. I love purple so it was perfect! Here is my pin of it to show the color:

    On another note, how was your first day back yesterday? Mine wasn't too bad. The kids were pretty good (thank heavens) and numerous kiddos were leaving early for doctors appointments so the first day back wasn't too vicious. Testing starts today though. Boooooo!

  5. I too, am fashion challenged, and nail polish is lucky to last a day! I love your place value stuff. Off to put it on my wish list!
