A peek into my bag of tricks …

Friday was our big 2nd grade show and my students have been practicing verrrrrrrry hard for this day.  But, with our show comes schedule changes… and what that really means to teachers isssssssss… AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! hahahaha So…we had 2 shows one in the morning (for families) and one in the afternoon (for students).  There are lots of emotions that happen throughout these types of days:   anticipation of parents attending or not attending, nerves, and EXCITEMENT!  Sooooo much excitement!  

My Game Plan

Hands on math rotations… YES! We use math rotations everyday and it is part of our routine.  My students love these rotations, so I decided to spice it up a bit and review some measurement, which we sooooo needed.  Below is a look at some of the rotations…

S'more Measurement    

Who doesn't LOVE s'mores?!?!?!






If you notice the #label … we use that in our class often to remind us to ALWAYS label our math problems!  


MUSIC WAR!!!

I am not quite sure why my students LOVE this game soooo much????  But… they are OBSESSED!!!!!!  



 WATCH OUT FOR SNAKES!

How much longer?

This activity is comparing 2 different length snakes!  We are currently working on comparing (subtraction) story problems, so this was a great concrete, hands on activity to help us make those connections of comparing! 





The S'more Measurement and Watch out for snakes! activities are part of my Camp Measurement unit that you can find here!   

Hands on activities … saved the day!!!!!! 

Well… I am off to do some plans for this upcoming week!!!!!
