We are ready to play.  The first card I drew was 5.  I have to try and place this 5 in the best spot I can.  I am trying to make the biggest number possible.

I put the 5 in the hundreds place.  Next card was an 8.

2014-05-19 11.29.41

I put the 8 in the thousands place.  My next card was a 3.

2014-05-19 11.29.55

I put the 3 in the ones place.  My last card was a 9.

Did I make the biggest number I could?

We play and play again!  I also use Aces to stand for a 1, and 10’s I use for a zero.  Enjoy!

Week 5 for Lollipop

Monday, Lollipop went home with Andy.  He met Andy’s puppy and they had fun together.  Lollipop drew a picture with Andy’s pencils and they had a blast!

2014-05-19 11.11.35

While Lollipop was at Andy’s house, a new friend joined.  Andy gave Lollipop a frog friend.  There are other “Humphrey” books and some of them have a frog in them too.  Thank you Andy!

Nicky took Lollipop home on Tuesday.  Lollipop rode on Nicky’s puppy, ate Mexican tacos and then he met Nicky’s other three dogs.

Lollipop went home with Tegan on Wednesday.  They went to Burger King for dinner and Tegan got a cheese burger.  They watched movies and Tegan tossed Lollipop into the air.  They read some more of the “Humphrey” book that night.

Dylan took Lollipop home on Thursday night.  They went to the store after school.  They bought chips and cereal.    Dylan’s mom then gave him a quarter for the quarter machine.  He got a blue Angry Bird eraser.  They went home and had chicken, potatoes and green beans for dinner.  They had ice cream for dessert.  After dessert they watched TV and went to bed.

Mrs. Miller took Lollipop home for the weekend!  Lollipop met Arlie and Makenna.  Mr. Miller was fishing that night so they got Sonic and watched Frozen before bed time.  Saturday, they did some work around the house first.  Mr. Miller took Makenna to see “Bears” at the movies.   She liked it a lot too!  On Sunday, everyone got more work done around the house and had Makenna’s favorite dinner!

 

 

Week 4 Lollipop

Monday May 5th, Lollipop went home with Stephanie.  He helped her with her homework and the family ate hotdogs and chicken for dinner.  Stephanie put in “Casper Meets Wendy” to watch.  They ate chips and salsa for a snack.  The kids played Hide and Go Seek and Lollipop picked a very good spot to hide!  That next morning he went with Stephanie to Walk to School.  They had fun.

Tuesday, he went home with Jacob.  Jacob let Lollipop play on his tablet and they played Subway Surfers.  They ate pizza and had fun.  Lollipop was left at Jacob’s home for a few extra days by accident but it sounds like they had fun.

Lollipop went home with Cynthia on Friday.  They first went to Cynthia’s aunt’s house to get her little sister and then to McDonalds for a soda.  They watched “Frozen” when they got home.  On Saturday Lollipop jumped on her bed and had ice cream for lunch.  They watched her uncle play Guitar Hero and then they went to the lake.  Sunday came and Cynthia finished the “Huphrey” book.  Her aunt came over to cook dinner and Cynthia had to clean her room.  It was a fun weekend.
