Happy Monday! Monday’s are so hard. I did not want to get out of bed this morning. It was all warm and cozy. But I did it!! And it was a good day. I must admit, that I love Monday because the monsters are dazed. That means a calm and quiet and drama free day. Of course, Mr. Greg still likes to get cray cray so we have fun. And of course, tomorrow will be back to our normal drama filled days! YAY!!!
Today we started learning about greater than and less than. We have been doing this as part of our daily calendar for a while, so it was no surprise that the monsters mastered this on day one. Let’s face it, those monsters are amazing. Brilliant little geniuses. And they have a stellar teacher, so really, would you expect less?!
I always kick off my greater than and less than with a fun whole group activity that gives each student a chance to be “greater gator!” I use an alligator mouth and groups of students. Greater gator gets to eat the group that has more!
