Place Value

Lately I have felt the need to drill some basics in for the boys and one of those, I guess the biggest one is 10's. yes that simple thing of 10 and how many are in any given number and how many ones and so on. PLACE VALUE people! I finally feel I am making headway with both boys and they are really understanding it. It is so important since our entire math system is based off of it. Here is what we worked on today and a cute pic from last week at the end of our habitat unit.

Yes they are dressed as pirates!

Here is a little preview of what I am planning for little man... I got a lot of these from the Totally Tots blog which is awesome

Shipley Nature Center

Last week we had our habitat field trip to end our month of habitats! This field trip was Amazing! The staff were very knowledgable and great with the kids.

My Big Guy got to be the leader!

"Eyes on the side, I like to hide"
"Eyes in front, I like to Hunt" an awesome lesson about prey and predators that included getting to see lots of real animal skulls.

SCAT! In this hut we learned about animal scat (poo)! The boys got to see several samples of scat from different animals and see what they had been eating...eeewww....and awesome.


Yes, we got to pet the snake and tickle his underside, no really he was ticklish!

Furs! Mammals have Fur!

Little Man lost interest at the end but loved climbing the trees.

And last but not least insects!

Petting a Beetle!

I would do this one again any time!
