I can't believe how much is going on this week! Besides digging out from 2 feet of snow, we are facing a week filled with activity! Tomorrow is the beginning of Chinese New Year. Tuesday is Mardi Gras. Thursday will be Day 100 as well as as Valentine's Day. Plus, next Monday is President's Day. I have a Professional Day and a Personal Day coming up this week, so that means 2 days of Sub Plans. How do I squeeze it all in?
Well, for one, I thought I'd squeeze a little Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day into math time with THESE math problems.
Since I'm going to be out on Tuesday, this is the perfect activity for the children to do that day.
But first, I'll read them a book on Mardi Gras and let them make some masks on Monday. (That way, the math problems will make a whole lot more sense on Tuesday!)
How do you manage to squeeze in the fun stuff this busy time of year?
