Source: Sunny Days in Second Grade     Getting students to take responsibility for supplies (and figuring out who likes to smash the tips, who leaves the cap off, etc.): Source: The Go-To Teacher     A math word wall, color-coded for Common Core: Source: Blair Turner's TpT Store     Number of the day board: Source: Simply 2nd Resources     Number Grid "Window" Source: Teacher Tipster     Expanding Place Value:  Source: Parents.com/Homeschool Den       Individual Stick Game:  Source: Lesson Plan Diva     Boggle-Inspired Math Board: Source: Live, Laugh, and Love to Learn     Using cards to have students identify maximum, minimum, median, etc.  Source: Debbie Diller     In the spirit of math-related items, I've decided to put all of my math games and activities on sale until the end of the month.  Head on over and grab a great deal while you can :)  Items are anywhere from 15% to 33% off.  Click on the picture below to visit my store and see what's marked down!       Oh, and you still have a few days to enter the giveaway for a new pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies:
