Place Value Camp Fun!

We  had a great time doing our place value camp this week.  We got this great idea from Missy Johnson from T.G.I.F.
 
The kids were so excited about it and we all had a blast!  Like Crystal said, the best part about it was that it helped them.  By the end of the week, they seemed to have a better understanding of place value-YEAH! 
 
The part that was really hard for me was the smiling part-we told them that there was no smiling during place value boot camp....which Crystal and I had to watch each other and try to stop one another from smiling and laughing throughout it.  :-)  The kids had a hard time with it as well.....LOL! 
 
Crystal and I decided that the last day of the week, we were going to take a break from the boot camp....oh how the kiddos were disappointed.  They liked it so much and wanted to continue to do it.  We even had some students dressing in camouflage.  :-)  So, we decided that since we only have 3 days with the kids next week (parent teacher conferences), we would do another boot camp.  Only this time it is going to be Money Boot Camp. 
 
Check out some of the pictures that we took! 
 
 








 
We hope that Money Boot Camp will be beneficial to our students and that they continue to have a blast with it next week! 
 
Have a great week!  Kristi
