Day 56- Delayed reaction

I mentioned Tuesday that I was impressed with how well behaved my students were after trick-or-treating the night before. My students came in ready to learn and they did a great job! Well today, the sugar finally kicked in to their systems. I'm not sure how to put it other than this... they were OFF. THE. CHAIN.

That doesn't mean we didn't get learning done. In fact, we learned a new song to go with out new math topic: subtraction.

The biggest number goes on top!
Goes on top!
Goes on top!
The biggest number goes on top,
when you subtract!

Cute, right?! So we practiced easy subtraction, as well as practicing compound words!

 We practiced making compound words, then we turned them into math facts! Students counted letters and wrote the addition sentences. I passed out the dry-erase paddles and split them into teams: boys vs. girls.

Here they are showing their answers! Foot (4) + Ball (4)= Football (8)

After a few rounds of addition, we moved to subtraction. The students had to split the compound word into its' separate parts. 
Waterfall (9) - fall (4) = water (5)

My soldiers were so good at this by the end of the game! It's a shame we had to stop and go to lunch. :) My girls won, by the way.

Here are the pictures from literacy centers.

Sorry this is such a short post, but I am exhausted! Have a great weekend!
