They sat at the carpet and I had a little chat with them. Asked them what respectful and responsible kinders look like. And they told me. And I asked, "Are you looking like this?" And they said no. So then I took the bit of Whole Class Teaching with the smiley and sad face on the board and the reward they were working towards was a little bit of free time. Sadly, they never got it. I won't go into details, but let's just say I earned my money in full today lol.
Oh how I wish they would have been sweeter. But they weren't. Speaking of sweet, I made a Sweet Math game. Students put numbered jelly beans and/or candy into numbered jars. They have to use +, -, X, or /. It's great for all ages because the little ones can stick to + and - and the older kids can use the X and /.
I include blank jars and candy so you can write your own. And only one page of colored candy since I know many of you are restricted on color :) And there's a record sheet so kiddos write what number sentences they made.
This can be found at my TN store.
But the first three commenters with their e-mails get it for free! Hope that helps someone elses Monday get better!
