Mrs. T's First Grade Class: "We are learning about cardinal directions, so we used a 101-200 chart and post-its to help practice. The students put an x on a number I called out and then I would tell the students to go North 3 boxes and East 2 boxes. The students would have to color in the number they landed on."
