Wednesday our day started with no electricity at school! What a way to start a week from a 4-day weekend (for the kids, we had in-service Tuesday)!! We called all of the parents and about half of our kids were picked up before the power finally came back on. This completely changed my day! I didn't want to give a test with only 8 kiddos in 1st grade, so I decided to wing it (don't you love those days??). Another teacher across the hall pulled out some of her random sorting materials from teaching kindergarten and had her students make a picture and number bond to go with it. The kids LOVED it! And it really seemed to solidify number bonds for those 8 little ones. I decided to make a few 10+ projects around the same concept for upcoming stations. If you're interested they're available on TpT!
