Teaching Place Value

Here are some ideas from Pinterest to help teach place value.  I'll add to this post a tutorial this afternoon on how to create a dry erase expander.

How to Make Dry Erase Place Value Expanders

Place Value Cups
My Second Grade Journal! Mrs. Ts First Grade Class: How to teach #number placement#!  Great Idea.  Just push the cups in and you would have 132.  Add the zeros for what ever place you are teaching.  Using different color of cups or pens would designate more clearly the value.
My kiddos love making these.  You just have to make sure the cups are facing the right way;)

Back to School Teacher Fashion

I had scheduled this one to post yesterday, but apparently that didn't happen.  SO here it is...

This was my inspiration for my outfit yesterday.  From Pinterest, of course.  I don't know how to do the cute bun. If anyone has any tips, I'd love to know how!  I'm sure I could look it up on Pinterest, but it's not the same as getting fun comments from you. 

I'm hosting a linky party until September 4th where you can share your Back to School Outfits.  You can even share the outfits your children are wearing on their first day!  Can't wait to see all the cuteness!  Link up at the bottom of the page.
