1 & 2 Give the kids place value blocks to make their name. have them calculate the value of their name. I am so doing this in our math journals this week! - Step into Grade with Mrs. Lemons: More Mudge and Place Value!
self esteem - students write complete sentences on each petal about what makes them special or proud. could also do a version where other students write complete sentences about the student in the center of the circle =) that'd be so nice. OR ADJECTIVES!
