Happy Saturday! I've got to write this post as quick as I can, because we've got to head out to my in-laws for a family reunion in about an hour, and I still have two kids and myself to pack for and get ready, so you *might* say that I'm running a bit behind. I didn't want to miss out on this fun little linky with Mrs. Brainbridge's class though! She made a TpT superlative graphic to get us even more excited about the upcoming TpT sale!
Addition and Subtraction for the Common Core Standards
I chose my addition and subtraction unit as my teacher's pet, because it was the math unit that I put off making for years! I just couldn't wrap my head around how I wanted to make it, but after I finally got started it was so much fun to create! I'm also thrilled with the fact that I finally have all of my addition and subtraction ideas in one place, and I now have a bunch of new ideas for teaching multi-step word problems that focus only on addition and subtraction.
Third Grade Fluency Passages
I love using fluency passages to improve my students' reading fluency, so I know that they work! I've used a variety of passages for many years and have seen great results. I love the fact that these passages will increase fluency AND allow students to learn more about social studies and science. It's such a great way to integrate multiple subjects!
Number of the Day and Weekly Word Problems
This will be the third year I've used these two items for my morning work, and I don't know what I'd do without them. I'm not just saying that either, I really count on this for essential skills practice. We go over them together every single day, and they work! At the beginning of the year, my students have such a difficult time with word problems, but every year they become AWESOME at them.
Now, just in case you don't know yet, there is the BIG, BIG, BIG sale this Sunday and Monday on TpT. Everything site wide will be 10% off, and I'll mark down everything in my store an additional 20% off for a total of 28% savings!!! Have fun shopping, and let me know if there's anything I just have to have!
