Math Start Ups

First Day they did a math about me worksheet that just got them to thinking about how numbers are all around us.
Day two I read How Much Is A Million and we discussed numbers and math.
The rest of the week I gave some fact tests to see if they knew their addition and subtraction facts. Then I game some simple word problems to see if they could solve them. These were not graded, juts used as a marker to show where they were with their math skills.
Allowed them to use manipulatives in centers so we could discuss how to use them properly.
Our first topic of focus was always place value.
