This has been a CRAZY, BUSY week!!! Next week I go back to school, so I'm finishing up my summer projects. Since it is super hot out, we've been getting lots of chores done inside!
After having a bracelet custom made at a bead shop in Colorado, my daughter and I decided to try and make our own. Michaels was having a sale this week! I highly recommend Stretch Magic for the elastic cord.
Here are a few of our beads!
We bought a tray that helps you figure out how many beads you will need to make the bracelet.
These were the ones we made this week! I think they are so cool and aren't like anything I already owned :)
We had fun with spray paint. This was an old, old tv stand (from 1985) that had been spray painted lilac, but was chipping and was a MESS!
Below is an old brown frame that needed some sprucing up! My husband collects old, old football programs. This was from 1958.
These are the after pictures!
I worked on this during the week! My goal was to create a packet that had lots and lots of opportunities for students to practice reading and create math word problems! This packet has 17 open ended math stories, and students do the work and create the problems.
There are so many different ways that students can solve these problems! For first grade, at the beginning of the year, it is done as a whole group. In second grade, students could come up with their own problems. This set includes stories that cover addition, subtraction, time, and collecting data.
