October Math war games and Halloween stories

We played math war games today with a deck of uno cards. The girls practice our addition, subtraction, multiplication and even division. I divided the cards in half and gave each girl one deck. We started by playing addition math war game by laying two cards down and adding them together and who ever had the highest number got all four cards. We did the same thing with subtracting the cards, multiplying, and dividing the cards. Then I made the girls draw cards and they had to see if they could make them equal to 20.

Since Halloween is upon us I decided that the girls needed to do a writing assignment. I got them both a pumpkin cookie for a reward and said they could write about anything and it had to be 5 pages. McKenzey’s book was done in 1 hour with pictures and all – she really wanted that cookie. Belle did a great job on all of her pictures but had a hard time on her writing, but tomorrow we are going to try again so she can finish and get her cookie. Enjoy Mac’s story…
