Last 20 days of school, each balloon has a special activity. Everyday you pop one balloon to find out what it is! (ex. sit wherever you want for the day)

First day of school! Students receive play dough and a writing paper. They make something from the play dough and write about it while the teacher is managing the details of the first day. Great idea!

"I did this last year and the kids loved it!! Countdown to last day of school. Pop one balloon each day. Inside is a special surprise for the day. Ex. No homework, read outside, work with no shoes on, chew gum in the morning, etc."

Cute for the end of school year https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=619100684786690=a.565419626821463.145026.565415993488493=1_count=1

Beaded number rods for subtraction! Great visual for students with special needs. Adding concrete materials when performing simple operations, helps build number sense to ensure students are relating quantities to symbols (numbers).
