Featured Freebie Fridays - May 25th, 2017

It's summer vacation in the county that I live in for teachers. I hope you are about done for summer as well. I will keep sharing freebies on Fridays that you can use with your own children, tutoring, or print out and have ready for next year!

This week's featured freebie is perfect for 1st grade Common Core Standard: CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.D.7
Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 - 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.

True and False Equations and the Equal Sign Kites Task Cards can be used like typical task cards for Scoot, Math Centers, Stations, Rotations, Quiz Quiz Trade, Early Finishers, Small Groups, etc. or it can be used with the fun game board included. In this game when students land on a kite they get to go again, but if they land on an umbrella it is raining outside so they can't fly their kite and must go back to start. Click the picture to grab it for free and show your appreciation by leaving positive feedback. It cost me time and money to make these free for you. Did you know I now have 80 freebies? I appreciate you and your support that's why I keep creating them for you!

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 23rd, 2017

For some of you this is your last full week before you are off for the summer. Enjoy your wonderful kiddos!

Last Thursday, the little one I tutor had her last day of school so she's already out for the summer. Lucky her! We started off working on reviewing first grade skills using more of my 1st Grade Review Task Cards. We worked on identifying the one's place, counting coins, skip counting by 3's, telling time to the 5 minutes, adding 2 numbers without regrouping, adding 3 numbers without regrouping, telling what number comes next, adding 2 digit plus 1 digit with regrouping, identifying a fraction by shading in the part, fractions of a group, adding 2 digit plus 2 digit with regrouping, and 3 number equations! I put the cards as always with a fun game board. The game board does not come with these task cards. The game board can be found in my Primary Reading and Math Games Bundle with sight word cards.

1st Grade Math Review Task Cards


Then we worked on 3 digit plus 3 digit regrouping. Yes she started learning that at the end of first grade! Keep in mind she is private school. She did very well only missing a couple of problems. We used my Camping 3 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards that comes with a fun game board. If you land on shelter you get to go again, but watch out for the bears and raccoons they will chase you back to start!

When is your last day of school? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Friday!!! The year is winding down. Some of you may already be out. The county I live in their last day of school is next Wednesday for the kiddos.

This week's featured Freebie is a freebie I put out last year when I practiced silent letters with the girl I tutor. She loves hot air balloons. So I created Hot Air Balloon Silent Letter Bump. There are two different games. The sounds included are wr, mb, kn, and gn. Please remember to leave positive feedback for my hard work if you decide to download it. It also cost me money to create these free for you. After downloading it click the back button to go back to the product to leave a perfect rating.

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 16th, 2017

I hope the mothers out there had a Happy Mother's Day on Sunday!

Last Thursday, I started tutoring off with my 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Beach Task Cards. I used the shell game board from the pack. It also comes with a beach ball game board or can be used as traditional task cards. I love the cards as the kids can write on, wipe off with them. Then I gave her a quick assessment using my 2 Digit Regrouping Spring No Prep Printables. She got 100% on it!

 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Beach Task Cards


Then I used my fun Addition and Subtraction 3 Number Equation Fish Puzzles. I gave her 12 (of the 32) puzzles to put together and she did a great job! Even when it was down to process of elimination of where they fit she checked the equations to make sure I hadn't made a mistake creating them. These are in color and b/w. The below example is in b/w but printed using colored cardstock.

 Addition and Subtraction 3 Number Equation Fish Puzzles


Then we had time to play my Space Addition Facts Race working on sums of 12, 13, and 14. This one isn't yet updated in my Primary Reading and Math Games Bundle but it will be in there this summer along with some updated games. Grab it while you can before the price goes up and you'll be able to download what I add for free!

Featured Freebie Fridays - May 5th, 2017

Happy Friday! I hope that you have had a spectacular Teacher Appreciation Week whether it was celebrated this week or last week at your school. Do know that I appreciate you! I hope you had the chance to shop in the Teachers Pay Teachers and Teacher's Notebook sitewide sales. There is still time to shop at Teacher's Notebook. Now on to today's freebie!

Today, I have a new freebie for you. I have been working hard on 2 digit regrouping with the 1st grader I tutor. So I decided to make a set of task cards for you too! These Sailboat 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards come with a fun board game. Of course you can still use just the cards with the recording sheet to play Scoot, Quiz Quiz Trade or any other cooperative group game, place at a center, station, or rotation, small groups, early finishers, etc. I have many suggestions included with the download. I appreciate positive feedback. Please remember it does cost me money to make these freebies free for you! It just takes you a minute to click back after downloading and leaving that feedback. Please do not place freebies on any website without permission from myself, which likely will be no. I want people to download them from my store so they can give me feedback.

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 9th, 2017

Before I get to my tutoring fun from last Thursday, don't forget Teachers Pay Teachers and Teacher's Notebook both have sitewide sales going on for Teacher Appreciation Week. Find out more about that in my blog post HERE.

Last Thursday, I worked with the 1st grader on Adding and Subtracting with 3 Number Equations. I laminated the cards so she could write the answer right on the cards to make it more fun. I put them with a fun game board that comes with my sight word and sight word fluency games. The cards without the game board are FREE!!! Did I say FREE? Yup! I appreciate you!

FREEBIE Adding and Subtracting 3 Numbers Task Cards

Silly me planned to work on more 2 digit addition regrouping with an Earth Day theme (as I didn't tutor last week), but I printed out the Subtraction ones instead. Oops! So we worked more with the Part Part Whole to 20 Love Bugs Task Cards. We worked on the last half of the cards that had the missing part that she had to solve. She used a dry erase marker to solve the equations. I put these with the Earth Day game board. That game board can be found with my 2 digit Addition, 2 Digit Subtraction, Multiplication, Sight Words, or Fluency Phrase Sight Word Race.

 Part Part Whole to 20 Love Bug Task Cards


Next we worked on some Review 1st Grade Task Cards that include many skills I have worked with her on this school year. These skills include addition to 12, subtraction to 10, time to the 5 minutes, counting coins including quarters, identifying 10's and 1's, and least to greatest. There are more skills included in the set that we will work on this coming Thursday. I put these task cards with a Karate game board (she does Karate twice a week). Land on a Karate kid you get to go again. The game board is with my sight word and R Controlled Vowel Race games.

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 2nd, 2017

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to my blog readers! I didn't tutor last week because the girl I tutor had a doctor appointment. So I will share some more fun things that I have used for tutoring in the past.

When I tutored her last year she was working on skip counting by 2's and 5's. A couple of the activities I worked on with her were skip counting by 2's with caps from water bottles and craft sticks. You simple put a number on each one and mix them up and the student puts them in order. We worked on numbers 2 to 20. Then 22 to 40 and so forth until she mastered counting all the way to 100. It seemed to work better by breaking it up into small parts.

Skip Counting by 2's Bottle Caps

Skip Counting by 2's Craft Sticks

I bought the foam butterfly at Dollar Tree. They come in a pack of a bunch with different colors. It was another easy skip counting activity where she had to lace the yarn which works on fine motor skills as well. She did have excellent fine motor skills and still does. I did paper plates as well that you can see in my blog post from last year by clicking HERE.

FREEBIE Adding and Subtracting 3 Numbers Task Cards


These are black and white task cards with equations with both addition and subtraction for each math problem.

These are perfect to use for Scoot, Quiz Quiz Trade, Numbered Heads Together, placed at centers, stations, or rotations, early finishers, partner work, RTI, small groups, journals as a problem of the day, send a sheet home for homework, or place with any game board like I do in tutoring.

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 25th, 2017

Last Tuesday, I continued to work on 2 digit regrouping by 2 digit with the 1st grader that I tutor. I found out at her birthday party that she loves Robots! So we played a board game with the Robot 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards that I recently created. If a student lands on a robot they get to go again because the Robot helps them do their work. I have included a recording sheet if you want to keep your students accountable or to play Scoot, Quiz, Quiz trade, etc. Click on either picture to grab it! I also have subtraction, sight words, and fluency phrases available.

Robots 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards

Robot 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards

I didn't show this video in tutoring as we don't do YouTube videos but I thought I'd keep with the Robot theme and share The Learning Station's video "Dancing Robots". Such a fun brain break your students will certainly love!!!


After we played that game we worked on these fun Part Part Whole to 20 Love Bug Task Cards. Students add the two parts together to make a whole! Click on either of the pictures of the hyperlink to grab it.

Love Bugs Part Part Whole to 20 Task Cards


I put this with my spring game board that comes with my Spring Sight Word Race game to make it more fun. Land on a bee you got stung go back to start, but land on a child with a net the child caught the bee and you get to go again. With the task cards, the game board is not currently in the set but I have included a recording sheet and answer key for you to use for Scoot, Quiz, Quiz trade at centers, stations, rotations, RTI, small groups, etc. This set also includes one of the parts missing with the whole being given. Your students have to find the missing part. We may work on that this Thursday if we have time. There are 36 cards!

Love Bugs Part Part Whole to 20 Task Cards

The Love Bugs Part Part Whole are also currently available with numbers to 10, multiplication, and even contractions!

Featured Freebie Fridays - April 21st, 2017

Easter may be over, but many teachers teach about animals as the year comes to a close so I thought this week I would share one of my very first FREEBIES "All About Rabbits" task cards. These cards are great for learning about Rabbits. Have your students go on the web and search for the answers to the task cards as they learn all about rabbits!

FREEBIE All About Rabbits Task Cards




You can also read them some books on rabbits and then play Scoot, Quiz, Quiz trade, place at a literacy or science center, station, or rotation or play any other cooperative group activity. Another favorite way to use task cards is to use them with any game boards. Click on the picture to grab it for free and be sure to leave positive feedback. Follow my store so you are notified of more freebies and other great teaching resources! Sometime in the next several days I will be posting a new freebie!

Share in the comments or on my FB page how do you use task cards? What are you working on that you would like to see me make task cards for? Any specific themes? I am happy to create things that meet your needs! I do not write stories so comprehension is not an option.

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 18th, 2017

Last week I actually didn't tutor, but went to a birthday party for the girl I tutor. The kids had so much fun bouncing in a bounce house and her dad hooked up a bubble machine that was very cool! I found out she loves Robots so I have been working hard making some robot teaching products.

Today, I will share some things I used for tutoring in the past.

To practice telling time to the 5 minutes I used this clock. The minutes are self checking as you can lift up the tabs to see how many minutes. I made clocks like these for 2nd graders many years ago.

Telling Time to the Five Minutes DIY

After doing some telling time with the clock I made we played a game Apple Race Time to the 5 Minutes using these task cards. A game board is also included that I didn't take a picture of.

Apple Race Time to the 5 Minutes


These 3 Digit Addition Task Cards I used with one of my sight word game boards Fish Sight Word Race to help making adding 3 numbers more fun. We did not use the sight words just the game board from it. Task cards are so perfect with game boards. I laminate the task cards so they can be written on with dry erase markers making them even more fun! They work well in the classroom, in tutoring, or home school.

Check back next week to see what I do this Thursday in tutoring with robots!

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 11th, 2017

Welcome to tutoring Tuesdays! I really tutor on Thursday afternoons, but this gives me more time to show some things I worked on the previous week and possibly other sessions when I don't tutor. Pictures were taken before or after tutoring. Currently I tutor a 1st grader so these will be primary activities. These activities will work well in the classroom and for home school students too.

One of my favorites to use during tutoring is the game Bump! Bump is a fun engaging game where children roll a die (dice) or a spinner and cover the number on the game board (or word if a reading game). Then the next player goes. If the same child gets the same number (or word) twice they place a 2nd cube or counter (same color) on it and then that space is locked. If anyone gets it again they simply lose their turn. However, if there is only one on the space and the other player gets the same number or word they bump them off and take the space! This game can take 10 minutes or a half an hour. Here is a free one that we played yesterday perfect for Easter. Easter Baskets Subtracting from 13 Bump.

FREEBIE Easter Subtracting from 13 Bump

I also worked on Easter Addition 2 Digit Regrouping Task Cards using bunny task cards. I placed a game board that comes with the 30 task cards to make it more fun. Children solve an equations and  roll one die and move that spaces on the game board. If they land on a snake they go back to start, but if they land on a chick they get to roll or spin again. This game also comes with bunny spinners. I forgot to take a picture of that.

Easter Addition 2 Digit Regrouping Task Cards

Easter Addition 2 Digit Regrouping Task Cards

I have a lot of task cards and race games in my store for addition, subtraction, multiplication, sight words, fluency phrases, etc. They are a favorite of kids!

I finally we worked on some Addition and Subtraction Word Problems to 10. I gave her one task card at a time and she solved it on a dry erase board showing how to solve it.
