Math Freebie and Gameplan for the New Year

So I haven't blogged in what seems like eternity (over a year!!). My new (school) year's resolution is to post at least once a month. That sounds doable, right?


Answer me!...

Aw, there's probably nobody reading this poor blog anymore. I'll have to work on that with a little freebie! :)

I helped with a little math PD at my school this week and I shared some things I'm using for fact fluency for my little firsties. I've loved many of Kathy Gursky's ideas from for many years. Go check her out (click on number families for math stuff). I've used her fact booklet with my kids for years but this year I changed up the order a little so I thought I'd share it here. My kids keep their fact booklets in their take home folders so it goes home with them every night (no excuse for not practicing those facts!). When they pass a set of facts I mark a smiley face in the box so parents will know to move on to the next set. If you want details on how I assess math facts I can post it later but you'll have to wait a month as I'm fulfilling my quota of posts for this month :) Click each picture to download.
**Disclaimer- That parent note that will be on the back of the booklet once it's folded is pretty specific to my classroom/school. You may want to type up your own and paste it on top. Sorry this isn't editable.

Now for my gameplan for this year.

At the end of last year I was thinking of how much my kids needed to practice and use polite manners. After a little searching for a manners unit I decided to just make my own. I finished it just in time since we start school next week, eek!!! I made an interactive student booklet that will go along with 2 weeks worth of character ed. lessons on manners.

I just posted it in my teachers pay teachers shop and I'm going to mark it down 20% for the big back to school sale! I'd love for you to take a look at it (click image)! And if you like it follow my shop so you get notifications when I post new things or have sales. Thanks, you're awesome :)
