Data, Valentines Day, and Fonts!

Wow! It has been a crazy week...it is crazy some of the stuff that happens at our school. I guess that is what I get for working in a lower income school. I do truly love all my students and it makes me more grateful for what I have everyday! I just introduced to my students data and how to find the minimum, maximum, median, range, and mode. I wanted to bring this into our calendar time everyday. We do calendar time for about 5 minutes at the beginning of math. Here is what we cover:

-Month, day, year, and full date
-Days in a Week/Months in a Year
-Day of school with place value
-Minutes in a Hour/Hours in a Day
-One More/One Less*
-Ten More/Ten Less*
-Even or Odd*
-Rounding up or down*

Each of the ones with a * next to them I pick a number on the chart and we answer each one of those questions for that number. I wanted to add data to this because I feel like it will make a HUGE difference in my students data knowledge.....so....TADA....

I also wanted to share with you my Valentine's Day math centers! We have a short week so I am going to try really hard to get them all in. We have Parent Teachers Conferences Wednesday night and Thursday during the day!

I also have been playing around with Ifont maker...thanks to Hadar! I LOVE it! Here is my first creation! 

I would love to share it with all my bloggy friends but I can't figure out how to upload it to my blog post for you to download...if anyone knows that would be great! 

I hope everyone has a great rest of their Sunday!

I try to do the same in the morning with calendar. It's so useful for them and you can cover a lot in a little bit of time.

As for your font, you could also offer it on TPT as a freebie and anyone can go there to download it. It's pretty easy to upload fonts :)

I love the font! You've inspired me to try it myself! I second what Maribel says, you should put it up on TPT!
