October Currently

It's October, my favorite time of year, cool days, changing leaves, and of course, Halloween candy :)
I have been with my students for approximately 6 weeks and I have been quite busy.  I teach math intervention for grades 2-5 so I have a lot to juggle on a daily basis.  Currently, I am planning workshops for parents, grades K-2, next week will be grades 3-5.  This is definitely one of my favorite parts of my job.  The parents always want to help their little ones and the math always seems so new to them. It is like a tutoring session for adults.  They love it and I am so happy that I can help.  

Thanks for stopping by.  What are you up to?

Making Apple Boxes - Combinations of 10

Today, my "farmer friends" helped me make new combinations of 10 apples!  I explained that I prefer red apples and my husband prefers green.  To our surprise, the shop keeper only sold boxes of 1 color, all red or all green!  My little guys agreed to help us use the apple boxes template and counters to help find all the combinations of 10 apples. 



Some kiddos were stumped.  Are we making different arrangements or combinations?  This was a wonderful teaching moment for this pair!

Template, recording sheet, and number cards are part of the TPT download.  I hope you farmer friends enjoy it as much as mine did! :)
