I've been busy working on a TpT request and have created a vintage look to classroom signage to match up with her existing theme.  

Here's what it's looking like so far...any thoughts?!

Place Value Chart

This was a bigger project to create than I thought but I think it turned out well...We'll see if I get any comments from my teacher friends :)

 Place Value Chart
The Place Value Chart is a visual aide to designed to help students understand the value of the digit based on its location in the number with colorful place value strips. Students will work with the place value to determine place value from hundred billions to hundred thousandths and to understand how to read and write numbers and decimals as well as their relative sizes. 

The Place Value Chart set includes:

- Place value headers (billions, millions, thousands, ones, decimals)
- Place value strips (hundred billions, ten billions, billions, hundred millions, ten millions, millions, hundred thousands, ten thousands, thousands, hundreds, tens, ones, tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths, hundred thousandths)
- Number sets color coordinated with place value strips (numbers 0 - 9) 
- 3 comma cards
- 1 decimal card
- Color place value mat for students
- Black and white place value mat for students
- Blank black and white place value mat for students

Student Dismissal Tags and List

Keep the kids straight at the end of the day with dismissal tags and a class dismissal list.

Dismissal tags will make the end of the day much easier for teachers and parents. Make one tag for each child in your class and have them attach it to their book bag or for the little ones have them wear it on a lanyard and collect it as they get on the bus, in the car or turned over to a parent as a way to keep track of who's been dismissed.

Student Dismissal List
Student Dismissal Tags

Student Dismissal Tags and List includes:

- Dismissal tags are color and image coded for bus, car rider and walker. 

- 2 tags per page, just print cut in half horizontally, add student name, homeroom, bus # (for bus tags) then fold in half, laminate, hole punch at the top and insert string or lanyard.

- Dismissal list to record and post in classroom

Star Numbers Matching Game

Just added the Star Number Matching Game to my TPT store! It is aligned with common core math standards and helps students to understand the relationship between numbers, names and quantities. Students will know number names, represent and compare whole numbers using tens frames, count objects in a set to tell the number of objects and practice writing number names.

The Star Number Matching Game includes:

- Number star cards
- Number name cards
- Tens frame cards
- 2 Recording sheets 

Common Core Standard
K.CC.4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

Star Number Posters with Tens Frames

I just finished creating some math posters!  I think these are really fun (!) and used stars in the tens frame. You can check them out at my TPT store.

Star number posters (numbers 1-20) are a visual aide to help students understand the relationship between numbers, names and quantities.

One poster page per number. Each includes:

- The number
- Number name
- Representation of number on a tens frame
