Zero the Hero

Today was our 30th day of school! I can hardly believe we've made it through a whole six weeks together. The beginning is always so's nice for it to slow down a little bit!


You know how we've been living in the apartment for the last 5 months?! It's nearing an end! PTL! I can't say it enough...apartment living is no joke! We are NOT cut out for it! We miss our swing set and the big back yard and our neighbors to play with...

We are closing on the new casa on Halloween if everything goes through without a hitch. We can't wait! If you follow me on Instagram, I posted a pic over there!

Back to Zero... does Zero come and visit your classroom every ten days?! My kids LOVE him! My teammate has a cute Zero the Hero puppet that we pass back and forth. I need to invest in one- do you have any suggestions where I can snag one up?

So today was day 30..our first "10" we made into Zero himself. Then on 20 we were studying apples and made apples out of the 20. We are beginning a unit on fall so we (can you guess it?!) made a fall tree out of "30" to add to our interactive notebooks.
{ignore those huge gobs of glue. Progress, people. We're taking baby steps!}

What fun activities do you do for Zero?!



  1. We've made a pattern bracelet out of 20 beads and sorted and graphed 30 skittles. This looks great! This is my first year with Zero and I haven't a clue what we're going to do on day 40.... but the kids are LOVING it!

    1. We made a thumbprint pumpkin patch for 40 and it turned out super cute! I let the kids draw faces on their pumpkins with black or brown markers too. They loved it!

  2. I love your trees!!! I just started Zero the Hero this year and love it! If you find a puppet, please share where I can buy one! :) And I love your trees! They are adorable!

    ”Dots” of Fun!
    1...2...3...Teach With Me

  4. Goodness, I remember trying to explain the number zero! I like the globs of glue- they give the work "character"!
