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.

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.
