Spring Math Journal Prompts!!!

Happy Monday, y'all!! It's already been a busy week helping all the little first graders in my grade level get ready for their "Barnyard Moosical" on Thursday!!! We had our first play rehearsal today & the kids were too precious for words!! It's going to be sooooo sweet!! But I am e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d because having our awesome play means no planning time for me!!! Once my sweeties were dismissed, my hubby showed up with a big, delicious SB latte to ease the pain. That is LOVE people!!! Not to mention the sweet man was up past midnight helping me cut out my centers!! Bless his poor heart. He didn't know what he was getting into when he married this crazy teacher!!

 
My students and I LOVE math journal time!! I've witnessed an amazing amount of progress with their problem solving abilities and confidence in "thinking outside of the box" this year because of the daily prompts. Last night, I posted my next set~ Spring Vol.1 . The majority of the prompts in this packet center around Saint Patrick's Day and the beginning of spring. There are a variety of skills covered: addition, subtraction, word problems, place value, number representation, number combinations, comparing numbers, number patterns, counting coin combinations and more! Many of the prompts promote higher order thinking and multiple solutionsYou can check this volume out {HERE}! More to come soon so you can have a complete year of them if you're interested!!

I know I've already posted about my Lucky Learning Math & Literacy Centers, but I wanted to come back and include a preview of all the centers in this packet!! I'm looking very forward to beginning them next week!!

Here's a sneak peekaroo of the lucky fun in this packet!!
