Hi Friends!

Can you believe that we are already in the middle of March?  But don't worry as *LUCK* would have it, we just had a GIANT snow storm here in Massachusetts.  I am on my second snow day in a row, now that is UNLUCKY!  This teacher does not want to be going to school later in June... #summertimesadness 

 In my class, we have been SHAMROCKIN' our addition strategies.  This year we are using three different strategies: place value chart, new groups below (standard algorithm from Eureka math), and expanded form.  These strategies give students three different ways to solve addition problems.  Using strategies differentiates to meet the needs of all students in the class.  Students are able to discuss and explain their thinking through the strategies.  We are now on to addition within 1,000.  YAY!!!!  Shamrockin' it!  
Grab some task cards ... here!

And ... because I love St. Paddy's Day and all that it entails... I have made some freebie glow stick tags for you!  Glow sticks are a REAL crowd pleaser in my class!  They are a FUN and inexpensive way to add some holiday cheer!

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy these freebies!  :)
