 I just want to stop in for a quick happy Valentine's Day and a festive Mardi Gras!  This year, Valentine's Day (14th) and Mardi Gras (17th) fall in the same week.  I'm from New Orleans, and Mardi Gras very often overshadowed Valentine's Day.  So, this year, I have created some new products that are a combined Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day theme.
Ya'll know about my Number of the Day units.  They are a great daily practice of number sense for your students in Kindergarten through Second grade.    I have two new units in my store:
Kindergarten Number of the Day
This unit introduces number sense from the Kindergarten Common Core Math Curriculum.  It works with numbers 1-10 and a variety of skills.
Number of the Day practice includes:
**Counting. (K.CCA.1) (K.CC.A.2)
**Writing numbers. (K.CC.A.3)
**Representing numbers through pictures. (K.CC.B.4)
**How many? (K.CC.B.5)
**Comparing numbers. (K.CC.B.6)
**Add and subtract within 10 (K.OA.1., K.OA.2)
**Representing numbers on a ten frame. (1.NBT.B.2)
This unit is aligned with the Kindergarten and First Grade Common Core Math Standards, and includes twenty days of practice with a Valentine theme.  The pages are divided into four sets of five with a cover page.  These pages can be used as a daily warm-up/spiral review, work for fast finishers, or for homework.  This unit includes practice with the numbers 1 - 20.  Each successive number of the day unit will increase in difficulty.   It will provide a spiral review of each number from 1 - 20 and the many ways to represent those numbers.
Second Grade Number of the Day
Number of the Day February Second Grade Edition gives your students a lot of practice working with numbers, representation and relationships.  All students need daily practice working with numbers to effectively develop their number sense.
Number of the Day practice includes:
**Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. (2.OA.2)
**Odd/Even. (2.OA.3)
**Missing numbers to one thousand. (2.NBT.1)
**Skip counting-number patterns. (2.NBT.2)
**Writing numbers. (2.NBT.3)
**Number line completion. (2.NBT.3)
**Representing numbers using base ten blocks. (2.NBT.3)
**Expanded form. (2.NBT.3)
**Comparing numbers to 1000. (2.NBT.4)
**Adding and subtracting numbers to 1000. (2.NBT.5) (2NBT.7)
**Ten more, ten less, one hundred more, one hundred less. (2.NBT.8)
This unit is aligned with the Second Grade Common Core Math Standards, and includes twenty days of practice with a Mardi Gras/Valentine’s Day theme.  The pages are divided into four sets of five with a cover page with a name space and two final pages with a completed 120 chart and more practice counting to 1000.  These pages can be used as a daily warm-up, work for early finishers or for homework.
I use ‘guided math’ in my classroom.  I begin my teaching time block teaching/spiraling math concepts as a whole group, but most of my math block is devoted to guided practice in small groups followed by independent or small group practice, centers and intervention.  I begin my math time every day with a page from my “Number of the Day” series.
and from last year:
First Grade Number of the Day practice includes:
**Counting forward and counting back from the number-Number line completion. (1.NBT.A.1)
**Skip Counting-Number Patterns. (1.OA.5)
**Writing numbers. (1.NBT.1)
**Number line completion. (1.NBT.1)
**Missing numbers on a hundred chart. (1.NBT.1)
**Representing numbers using base ten blocks. (1.NBT.2)
**Adding and subtracting single digit numbers from numbers less than 100. (1.NBT.4)
**One more, one less. (1.NBT.C.5)
**Expanded Notation. (1.NBT.6)
**Odd/Even. (2.OA.C.3)
