Halloween party!

We have been having fun all week! We started with a scary story on Monday. It is included in my Ordinals pack. It is a ghost story to review ordinals. The kids loved being able to change the little boy faces.

Today we earned a big celebration. 
I told my kids that my grandma was a witch and she left me a brew recipe. I have shared a blank pattern so you can create your own. :)
We filled ours and then we moved on with the brew.
We started our brew! If you are interested in the witch craftivity check out the previous post.
 
To set the table I used IKEA plates, glasses, napkins and confetti. It was quite cheap. With every step we added it to our recipe.
All the ingredients were pretty simple: milk, sugar, yogurt, cocoa, nutella, cream… 
Each kid got a small glass with brew. They loved it!
Don’t forget our GIVEAWAY!!!

Place value week

This week has been all about place value! 
I have started to create my own classroom posters in A3. This makes them easier to see and to organize. I also added a small magnet at the back of poster to hang it on the wall. All my walls are great for magnets as I am in a portable. I saw this great idea in Teaching with Style. Thanks!!!
So going back to the Place Value stuff we introduced hundreds. First we created them with dough. We had fun creating numbers with Play Dough.
To work on this unit I have purchased some cool stuff from TPT. Check out:
 Number Knowledge {Place Value and Comparing/Ordering Numbers}Playing Around With Place ValueNumbers in Base Ten {5 Math Centers 0-700}

I specially love Amy Lemon’s stuff when I teach second grade. We used some of the manipulatives in one of her packets with this worksheet. Check out her blog posts about place value.

She makes visual stuff that I don’t need to translate to Spanish.
THANKS, AMY!
I also used some freebies. Blair Turner has this great Place Value activity with three different levels. My kids have already gone through level 1 and 2. We worked in pairs and I created the response sheet myself in Spanish. Thanks Blair! Check other free scoot games:

Where I teach

I had been teaching in the same school for 6 years and them I moved and I forgot taking photos of my classroom. :(
This is an old photo form my old school. We won’t start school until September so I am not able to take photos of this year classroom yet. 

This is an old photo. This year I teach in a portable, not the same size, not the same light… but I love my new school so I’ll find a way to make it as appealing as my old classroom.
