I have finally finished the next set of my daily math and morning worksheet pages (weeks 16-20). I also have the answer key!!! Yippee! I plan to do this for any future products that I post – It is so hard to go back and edit after I post them. Things pile up and it gets put aside. Well, let me show you some screen captures
I kept the same layout I went through the common core math standards and typed up problems to match. I did try by best this time around to make some differentiated problems. You will find that problems are related and build upon each other.
I am very proud of this set Thanks for stopping by!
My students go to a math ‘Worksheet Station’ everyday. They complete a daily math warmup worksheet with a buddy, and then play a math game. I was running low on math games, so I made the following three.
One is a board game that has multiplication and division task cards to go along. The next two are puzzle games that review the distributive property of multiplication and the fact families. All games have answer keys and recording sheet
My students also made a distributive property craft We used white copy paper, but there is a pumpkin clip art in the packet if you’d like to use that. Hope everyone is having a great year so far!
I have finished the comprehension tri-folds for Unit 3 (McGraw Hill Wonders). See preview below. These stories were jam packed with information (mostly nonfiction), so I am so glad to have these to keep our thoughts organized.
I also added a bundle of units 1-3 to my TPT site. I will create a bundle for units 4-6 when they are complete, but it won’t be until towards the end of the year.
I typed the following sheets to share with my grade level This is the first chapter in our social studies book, and we thought it would be a fun interactive way to start if off!
Please see preview for a detailed description of what is included. Everything is ready for you to print! Students cut, glue (or staple) pages on the sheet of writing paper. Students then summarize the picture cards into paragraphs.
I plan on starting this next week!
UPDATE: I have now finished units 3 & 4 of 3rd grade vocabulary board games Below are the previews.
There are a total of 10 board games (5 for unit 3, 5 for unit 4). The games include the spinners that tell you how many times to move and also what activity to complete. I did keep the same choices from last time (say a sentence, act it out, define it, draw it), but I also added some different ones. Students are asked to say an antonym of the word or synonym of the word.
Click here to view the TPT listing. I will be working on 2nd grade vocab. games next.
I always want to take pictures, but find that it’s the end of the day and I’ve had no time to take out my phone and snap a pic. I will try and take more, but here are just 2 for right now. One is a picture of a student’s reading notebook. We read the leveled reader together and searched for cause/effect. The second is of the jobs chart and ar chart.
On another note – I sent Humphrey home for the first time this week! It will be interesting reading his first entry. (The students are to write a journal entry of Humphrey’s visit with them. It’s from Humphrey’s point of view.)
And now to catch up on things this weekend – and of course, enjoy my family
I will be sending these pages to get copied this week. Students will start taking this little hamster home and writing a journal entry from his point of view. I plan on putting the little hamster in a Ziploc bag that reads: Please keep our little Humphrey away from food/drinks/smoke. Thank you Please return Humphrey and his Journal by Thursday.
Below are screenshots of the pages I plan to print. You can download the PDF file by clicking HERE.
I made the following vocabulary tri-fold for Unit 1 – Lesson 4. I plan on assigning this for homework. I may continue with the rest of the lessons.

We are almost done with chapter 2 from Go Math! We made 4 different types of data tables in groups today! That was really really nice, because I had the students create the different tables on their own. I will have to take pictures of their finished products. I plan on using the practice sheets that I made last year to review before the test.
I also made the following activity for students to complete with groups. It’s currently a freebie at my TPT store

This will be a quick activity for them to complete. I plan on having them make the questions, make a key – and switch the questions with other groups. This will be a nice quick activity to review before the test.
We had a very busy first week of school! We managed to do all those required things (code of conduct, bus video, etc.) and also start on some fun things!
I registered all of my kids on Manga High – one of the coolest math websites out there! They already started playing the 3 challenges that I’ve assigned them. They think I’m the coolest teacher …as they review their addition/subtraction facts. Manga High is great, because I can start the games at 2nd grade level and move them on through 3rd grade common core standards and beyond.
Now to register them for reading, science, and social studies!!! Talk about homework for teachers . It will be well worth it in the end, because parents can access the textbooks and interactive features.
I did find two pictures that I took of my room while I waited on Meet the Teacher.
This is the back of my room – You can see the behavior clip chart, job chart, ar chart – and vocab/spelling words display. (Also the stack of math books and binders..)
This is my unfinished math wall – I went back and created a group 5 and group 6. I also made a similar (just different color) display for my reading stations.
We also started the daily math/grammar pages – we did the first week (back to school activities). Now we get to start the math part – I hope this goes well!
I also already started building two things into our routine: 1. watching brain pop/safari montage video during snack time. 2. reading a chapter book for 15. after recess. So far so good!
This week it will be practicing the math and reading stations
