How many “times” today have you been asked…
WHAT TIME IS IT???
more FROZEN! And Frozen 2
Sorry if the song will NOW be in your head…
So…let’s add some FUN!
I DO! I DO!
My firsties are working on place value.
Struggling a little with the different variations on representing numbers.
So, what is a teacher to do?
My newest packet allows kids to build a snowman
AT THEIR LEVEL!
Snowballs are available in
base-ten, expanded notation, math mountains, & ten sticks.
If they are working on building a number in base-ten blocks
then only use the base-ten blocks snowball.
Want to extend?
Add a “expanded notation” snowball.
Add a few more….mix them up & have them sort…use as an assessment!
WOW! All in one!
Here it is!

Happy FALL, ‘Yall
We started in August.
We are SO LUCKY to get 2 weeks FALL VACATION
the first two weeks of OCTOBER.
IF you can survive SEPTEMBER!
Some whole class, some one-on-one.
AND then TEACH!
Don’t forget… report cards for ALL.
(Make multiple copies and then some!)
I had 100% attendance this year!
This has NEVER happened to me before!
I can get close… but 100%???
( Pat on the back ).
Finish 1st quarter lessons & skills.
Introduce 2nd quarter skills.
And… a new student on Thursday
before Fall Break!
We have no “BIG” plans.
Family is local ( we are catching up with family).
So, I thought this Fall break,
I would work on my TPT store,
a “little bit”.
Thank you, Misty Miller and Shelly Rees.
You helped MOTIVATE ME!
I kept asking myself, “What do I need this year?”
I asked friends, “What do YOU need this year?”
And here is what WE came up with.
FOR THE WHOLE YEAR!
Preview skills. Review skills. Assess. Interventions. Homework. Centers.
Whole Group. Small Group. Independent.
ALL DONE! WAHOO!
And a FREEBIE for YOU!
Take care of yourself.
You can’t pour from an empty cup. 🙂
Does the word “MATH” make you giggle, or grumble???
If you teach TK – 6th grade, you teach addition and subtraction.
Teach. Practice. Practice. Practice. Reteach. Over and over.
The numbers change. They get bigger.
But the skills and strategies don’t change.
The vocabulary changes ( occasionally), for example:
3 + 4 = 7 … Is this “all together” or “in all”?
I have taught them ALL.
Our newest math program has first graders using the yellow and red foam counters on day 1.
And, they need to “discuss” with their partner HOW they got their answer.
First of all, some can’t count yet, and they won’t “discuss” their mathematical thinking
with students THEY DON’T KNOW! Not yet!
Now I get the idea. Just a little FAST!
Some were poking them with pencils. flipping them in the air, and yes..one student chewed on the foam counter. Ewwwww.
And so, I am S L O W I N G things down, a bit.
Then we will discuss routines and procedures for using them.
Last, we will use them to create math experiences.
Add some skills and strategies, and VOILA! We will have mathematicians!
To help my littles with beginning addition and subtraction to ten,
I have included Addition Task Cards,
And student work pages for accountability.
Check out the video:
92 task cards for students to practice addition and subtraction with Ten Frames.
For the WIN! I may use this for guided math centers, interventions, and/or independent practice. We shall see!

I hope this helps YOU with planning
Lots of FREEBIES! Have a great school year!
