I’ve been away from my computer the last few weeks.  Thank goodness I didn’t have much going on this weekend.  One of my kids begged me to come to his Pop Warner game this morning so I froze my buns off in the stands this morning {Hi Fall, I’m so glad to finally see you!}, then came home and whipped up some chili in honor of the weather.  I’m now sitting on the couch, planning and grading, finishing some laundry, and watching some football.  These are my favorite kinds of Sundays!  How about you?

This week in math we worked on adding two and three digit numbers.  We talked about when we need to regroup and when we don’t.  We used the football numbers from my Football Fever set.  I made a few new recording sheets and added them to the set.  Click the image below to check them out or redownload the unit to get the new sheets.

We also used centers from a couple other sellers.  We used some centers from this awesome unit from Amy Lemons.

And some from this awesome Halloween themed set from Linda Kamp.

We’re going to be reviewing subtraction with and without regrouping this week and so I’ll be using resources from all three of these this week as well.
We also spent some time talking about problem solving and developed a plan of attack for story problems.  We do quarterly math problem solving and so our first formal assessment is coming up shortly.  I wanted the students to have a better plan of attack than they had when we did our baseline in August.  I created these free posters and put them up in my room.  You can click on the image below to get them for FREE.
Last, but not least, I was in Austin, TX last weekend for a fantastic governmental affairs conference with my favorite non-profit.  We got to tour the capitol and had our meetings in the general chambers.   It was the experience of a lifetime!  

Since I was there I reached out to two of my favoritest, sweetest blog friends in Austin and asked if we could meet.

Here I am with Kristen from A Day in First Grade and Reagan from Tunstall’s Teaching Tidbits.  Both of them are as sweet as can be in real life.  We talked kids, classes and TpT and had some delicious migas and mimosas!  I loved being in Austin and was a little bit envious of them- except I wouldn’t handle the heat well at all!

I need to get back to this grading so I can finally actually get myself caught up.  I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
