The Queen of Ten

On Wednesday it was the 10th day of school!!! The Queen of Ten came for a special visit. She brought her Queen of Ten wand, which was made of five yellow Unifix cubes and five blue Unifix Cubes. The tricky thing about this wand was that it broke easily,and this was compounded by the fact that the Queen of Ten was very clumsy. We had to help the Queen put her wand back together again.

Class Math Routines we do everyday! On the 100th day of school we have a BIG celebration!
