Water Balloon Fun
Last Friday my students got to participate in a water balloon fight with my teaching partner's homeroom class. We started an incentive program during the last 9-weeks of school to help students' maintain their good behavior and work habitats, and students got to earn water balloons for meeting certain criteria. The event got a little (okay, a lot) bigger than we expected, and we had to fill hundreds of water balloons. We had parents working all week long to get the balloons ready! Friday was the big day, and we had so much fun. Well, at least until our students decided to gang up on us teachers-I think the bruises are almost gone!
I've also given my place value unit a complete overhaul. It looks much better and now has additional hands-on activities and games, and I've downloaded the place value concentration game to share. I've been going back and forth on whether or not to add pictures to the cards. What do you think?
