Monday Made It - January

I have been waiting to share these made its since the Christmas break. I was fairly productive over the break. 

I have started Daily 3 for Math in my classroom and I knew I wanted to engage my students when they were doing "Math with Someone", so I made game boards for them. I wanted them to be fun and inviting, but where I could switch them out too. I made some that are seasonal and some that can be used all year round. 

Throw some dice and counters in a bag and viola', GAME ON

My 6th graders have been using them for almost a week now. They love them. I think the options for these are countless and can be used for any grade level, any subject. 
You can check them out here.

If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen this. 
This is week 2 of meal planning. 
Last week, I made lunch, breakfast and my husband made meat for our dinners for the entire week. 
It was GREAT! 
This week, I have my breakfast for the week completed and lunches too. 
We didn't cook meat this week, but we do have food ready and now what we are eating for most of the week. My major concern is breakfast and lunch and that is set. 
I know so many people do this, if you don't, you should. 

Planning prevents failure!

  1. HA! Food always makes it into my posts too! I know I do SO much better when I plan meals--with our crazy schedules it can be SO hard!

  2. I made gameboards over winter break too and they've been a hit! I love how the same board can be used in different ways to keep it focused on the concept and not trying to learn how to play the game! I only wish I could attempt to do a weeks worth of meal planning and prepping. Looks like it was a great success!

  3. I would love to know how you are doing daily 3 math in your classroom!

    1. live post tomorrow!!! be sure to check back!!! I am so excited to share it!!!!
