Product Swap: Ice Cream Cone Ordering Numbers

I joined Jessica Stanford's Product Swap linky party.

I am excited to share with you the product I received from my product swap partner Sue Lattea. I am always looking for creative things to use in my math instruction and Sue's Ice Cream Cone Ordering Numbers 0-20 is a perfect to use in math centers and what kid doesn't love ice cream?! (Check out Sue's blog below):

Sue's pack comes with three colored sets of ice cream scoops with numbers 0-20 on them. This pack also offers the ice cream scoops in black and white, which is nice if you have a black and white printer or you want to save on ink. I love that she added four recording sheets that students can complete, two of these sheets are shown below.

I plan on placing magnets on the back of these scoops and allowing students to use them on our magnetic whiteboard. Here are a few pics. of what is offered in this pack.

Get the Scoop on Story Elements, Comprehension Skills & Strategies

I am linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics with her Monday Made It.
I wanted to share with all of you my story elements, comprehension skills & strategies "scoops" that I made. I made these mini scoops to display in my classroom. I think I am also going to use them in centers as well. I plan on putting magnets on the back of each scoop and displaying them on my whiteboard. These scoops will be a great reference for students.

These "scoops" are great for introducing various reading elements, skills and strategies. Each scoop has a short description on it as well as a corresponding picture. You can check them out by clicking on any of the pictures below.

Happy Monday!
