I wanted to throw away as much as I could and not just shove things into my cabinets. Why is it so difficult for us to throw things away? Why do I need to keep my kindergarten materials from six years ago when I now teach second grade?
My theme this year is monsters. I had my students pretend they had a monster for a friend. They loved making their monsters and writing about their monster friend.
We made these adorable monsters for math. We are learning about place value and the different ways to write a number. I wanted to do a fun activity with my students so we made these place value monsters.

I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for their "Where" linky party.
