This year the standards (TEKS) in Texas changed in math. One of the big changes for 2nd grade is with place value. Before, we were required to teach up to 999. Now we teach up to 1,200. I knew I needed some new material to work with so I got busy whipping up my latest unit. Let me just say that I’m a tad bit excited about it. I want to use it tomorrow but I’ll have to wait a few more weeks. I’ve been saving this super cute clip art from Graphics from the Pond for months and finally found a use for it.
