Mister Rogers' Neighborhood . Build a Neighborhood Come play again later! Come play again tomorrow! Games for Learning English, Vocabulary, Grammar Games, Activities, ESL Monday Made It III Yo! Linking up with Tara again at 4th Grade Frolics! This week's Monday Made It is simple yet awesome. I know everyone has heard of Boggle (and many use the game in their classroom) but have you ever heard of Noggle? No? Well that's probably because I just invented it. Here's what you need to make your own Noggle Game - Sentence Strip holder (I found some for $1 at the Target dollar bins) The object of Noggle is to multiply number neighbors together to try and get as close as possible to 100. My hope is my students practice their multiplication and develop a better understanding of what a number is worth! And if you're wondering where I got the odd name of Noggle, here's my thought process: since the game is similar to Boggle except with Numbers, I took off the B and added an N.... :) Cheers!

Mrs. Beattie's Classroom: 2013 - Year In Review Happy New Year! 2014 has arrived, and while I'm very excited to see what this year will hold, I am also taking some time to look back and reflect on everything that made 2013 awesome!

I am thrilled that over 400 of you have chosen to read the things I write here! Some of you have been with me since the very beginning, and others are fairly new, so today I am going to count down my Top 10 Most-Viewed Blog Posts of 2013! Click the headings to visit the original posts for more detail! #10 - Learning From Crayons This may be THE most appropriate place for me to begin for this new year! #9 - If I Were a Thanksgiving Turkey.... This was one of the most engaging writing activities I did with my second & third graders in the fall, and was a great way to discuss point of view. #8 - I Heart Math
