50th Day Goodies

     I can't believe we're getting ready to celebrate the 50th day of school.  It feels like we just started!  We don't do much for the 50th Day (compared to the extravaganza on the 100th) but I like to do a few fun games during math time.  Help yourself to any that you might be able to use on your 50th day!
     First, we'll let the world know that we're 50 days smarter with some colorful badges.  I usually have the kids glue them onto a sentence strip to make a crown or punch a hole and add some string to make a necklace.
     Then, we'll play a game that's always a favorite - Race to 50.  It's played in pairs and each partner chooses a different color crayon to use.  Taking turns rolling a die (or 2 dice if you're kids are ready for that) the kids color in the number of squares on the game board that matches the number that they've rolled. How fast can they get to 50?  Be prepared for a noisy math time!
     Next, when we need to restore a little peace and quiet, we'll end the day with a search and color activity.  There are 50 shapes inside the number 50.  First, the kids color in the shapes according to a color chart (hearts are red, etc.) then they count and record the number of each shape that they've found.
     I hope your first 50 days have been fabulous!

  7. I like this...but, I modified it. I made sure there were 10 of each shape on the #50 so that my students could count by 10's. I'm not sure why it was done the other way...

  10. Disclosure Park Campus - Discovery Park is a diversion retreat, stressing the science and society of the Gila Valley, from mining and agribusiness to space investigation. A full-movement test system takes visitors on a ride past Mt. Graham to visit the nearby planetary group, and the nature's hideaway riparian environment, only east of the grounds. check cashing

  11. Additionally you ought to avoid individuals who say that getting your auto is liable to endorsement, then offer you long, higher appraised credit rates, and in light of the fact that they imagine that their individuals won't ever re-read the agreement, and that they can escape with charging to a great degree high financing costs.payday loans

  12. As already said, numerous auto dealerships have their own particular money arms and might have the capacity to offer financing guaranteed by the automakers rather than the banks. The loan cost they charge can regularly be set apart up to give the dealership an edge of benefit on every reimbursement you make. check cashing
