Long Weekend and a freebie

We had a four day weekend and I should have gotten a lot more done. I was really lazy on Friday and didn't feel all that great. But we stayed busy Saturday and Sunday. My hubby is a boy scout leader. This is one of the things that I really love about him. He was an Eagle Scout himself and just took over the troop about a year ago. We had a ceremony for four boys to cross over from the cub scout pack into the boy scout troop. I was not only very proud of my hubby for being a part of this but it was neat because 3 out of the 4 boys I have known since they were in kindergarten and one of them was in my class for kindergarten and first grade. Sot it was neat to see how they have grown up. This is one of the things I love about living and working in a small community. Sunday we spent most of the day with church related stuff. My hubby and I are youth leaders and our youth group was singing at a a benefit concert. Last night I finally got around to doing a few things on my to do list. One of those was to make a place value write the room. I had one in my winter math workstations pack but I wanted to update the clipart to be non seasonal. I have some great new clipart from Ashley Hughes. After making this activity, I think I'm going to make a whole math unit using some cat and dog clipart. My kids are obsessed with pets.

I hope you can use this freebie. I plan on using it this week. My kids need some more practice with place value. I didn't get much done today either. I still have quite a few things on my to do list. I spent the day with my mom, sister and niece. We had a lot of fun shopping and hanging out. My two year old niece Sophie is a mess. I did get one other project finished this weekend. It's my alphabet soup pack. These are foldable books and graphic organizers for each letter.
Check it out on TPT here.  I hope you had a good weekend even if it wasn't a long one. It's time to get back to the grind tomorrow. Our next break is Spring Break which is the first week in April.
