We have had a BUSY week, y’all! I feel like I say that every week because it’s pretty much always true, but this week seems to be extra busy!
Today, I realized that these little hot air balloons would be perfect for place value. I had already printed this to use with my subtraction unit a few weeks ago, but we never got around to making them! So glad I had saved the copies and they were right at my fingertips! I might not have originally planned for these to go with place value, but so many things like this are super flexible!
My 2nd class made the place value cherries that I had prepped for today. Since I had initially planned to do both the hot air balloon and cherries in partners, I ended up having a class set of each craft. So, one got the hot air balloon, one got the cherries, and they both served the same purpose… showing me what they have learned! And, every student got to make their own individual model rather than share with their partner… that’s always a relief 🙂
