We've been working on place value around here this month, and it's been a lot of fun too. The kids caught on quite quickly, as normal, and we've been playing games to enforce what they've learned. One of our favorite games is The Place Value Game. Today, though, I taught the boys how to play Place Value War, which they found, "Totally smashing!"

This week was not my best week since my mind has definitely been on spring break but I thought I would share some posters we made. We read A Curve in the River from our Houghton Mifflin series, and after we wrote our own messages in a bottle. The paper was a little big to put the caps on our bottles and I said we wouldn't throw them in a river because that would be littering but they still loved them. Here's my pre-writing activity (don't make fun of my person, I am terrible at drawing…
