Integration Is the Name of the Game

Abraham Lincoln, 100th Day, Valentines Day, George Washington, and I am still teaching about penguins! This is the craziest month of the year and I am probably confusing my students incredibly. Oh well. I will do my best to get through all this curriculum and have a little fun! They loved these math mats because I made up addition stories using their names and any penguin vocabulary my brain could come up with. I was so ridiculous but it made them laugh. Integration is the name of the game! So they take the cubes from the penguin's belly to the number line and read the last number to get the answer. They have to give me the equation.

February is such a crazy month Fran! I feel like I do a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Just a taste of things that they will learn more about in later years. Thanks for the adorable books on George and Abe! I am using them both. Happy Friday and Happy Birthday coming soon!
