Tutoring Tuesdays - May 15th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! You survived Monday Funday! The county I live in has just 7 school days left. I hope your school year is winding down as well. Be sure to follow my store to not miss any new resources including freebies!

I started out tutoring reviewing Multiplication facts up to 5 times 12 with the 2nd grader using my new Multiplication Camping Race. If the student land on shelter you get to go again, but watch out for the animals they will chase the student back to start. So much fun!!!

We finished tutored working on Multiplication and Division Fact Families using my Multiplication and Division Fact Family Houses. There are 24 task cards included. If you laminate them students can write on them with a dry erase marker. I did include a recording sheet, but they will have to write very small to fit all 4 equations. Otherwise use notebook paper. An answer key is included. She didn't miss a single fact family! The example below was printed black and white on colored card stock. They are available in color and black and white.

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 1st, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Much better Tuesday for me than last week. My dog is okay thankfully. She got her stitches removed last week and the cone as well. Unfortunately she has to have eye drops in her the rest of her life. Be sure to follow my store by simply clicking HERE if you are logged into TPT!

I'm having to use a different browser and it is not letting me link the pictures so click the hyperlinks to check out my products!

We started out reviewing Multiplying by 4 and learning 5's using my Ocean Animals Multiplication Race. This game has all facts up to 12x12! Silly me left the game board at home so I had her pick a game board of her choice. The picture shows the correct game board. Land on a dolphin and you get to go again, but land on a shark and it chases you back to start!


Next we worked on reviewing tally marks to 10 using my FREE Earth Day Tally Marks Clip It cards. If you laminate it you can also have the child circle the answers. If you download this please show your kindness by leaving positive perfect feedback!



Then we worked on division by 4 using my Beach Division Race. These go all the way to 12 facts. I again forgot the game board at home so she picked one. The correct board game is pictured.


We also did some elapsed time to the hour. I just gave her a card with a clock on it and told her to tell me the time if it was an hour later. This is not pictured, but I have many telling time cards HERE.

We finished with just an introduce to rounding dollars using my Ice Cream Monsters Rounding to the Nearest Dollar Task Cards We didn't use the board game that does come with this one due to time, but we'll be doing this one on Wednesday so check back next week to see it in action!

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 24th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Anyone who is a prayer warrior please pray today. My dog as many of you know had under her eye cut at the Groomer's accidentally two weeks ago. She goes in today to hopefully get the stitches out and also hopefully the cone. It is also exactly 6 months ago that my Grandma went to Heaven.

For some reason it is not allowing me today to put a link in the picture so please click the hyperlinks if you want to check any of these out. Thank you!

Last Wednesday, I started out working on multiplying by 4 using my new Strawberries Multiplication Race with the 2nd grader. Land on a space with a number and you can have the student go forward that many spaces or backwards! Depends if you want a quicker game or a shorter game so I left that option to you! It also includes some fun cards that you can use if you would like. This game covers all of the multiplication facts in the 3rd grade standards.


Next we worked on putting numbers in the thousands in order from least to greatest using my Stars Number Order In The Thousands Task Cards. There are 10 sets in all.




We then worked on A.M. or P.M. using my Telling Time A.M. or P.M. Task Cards. This was a skill her mom said she sometimes has difficulty with. I put it with a game board like I usually do in tutoring to make it more fun. A board game is not included. You can use these as traditional task cards. A recording sheet and answer key are included with the 24 cards.



We finished tutoring doing a few more problems with giving back change. I focused on amounts where dollars weren't needed last week. You can see it in action from the last tutoring session HERE.

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 17th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Half way through April already. Wow! I hope each of you are hanging in there as you near the end of the school year. I wish your students the best of luck on their tests. Last Tuesday my poor dog accidentally was cut under her eye at the groomer. :(  Next week she will get her stitches out.

Last Wednesday, in tutoring I started out with a worksheet that I will post sometime reviewing capacity conversions, feet to yards, yards to inches, days in a year, etc. We also did some division by 2 and telling if the time was A.M. or P.M.

Then we worked on ordering numbers in the thousands least to greatest using my Smart Flowers Ordering Numbers in the Thousands Task Cards. I simply gave her 4 cards and she put them in order from least to greatest. There are 10 sets of cards in all.

Ordering Numbers In The Thousands Place

After that we worked on rounding numbers to the 10's place using my Princess Rounding Numbers to the 10's Race. She had asked me to create a princess game so I did just that! She did a fantastic job and didn't miss a single question!

 Princess Rounding Numbers to the 10's Place

Then we worked on some task cards where she had to name a third of a given number. There were dice on the cards to help her. This is a skill she was working on in school. These cards are not yet available for purchase.



After that we finished by working on giving back change using my brand new Giving Back Change Task Cards. I gave her money manipulatives to help her give back the change. I did them with her as I was helping introduce what she had been introduced to in school. Even her teacher said this is a very difficult skill for 2nd graders. I plan to do a few more with her this Wednesday.

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 3rd, 2018

Happy April! I hope each of you had a wonderful Easter or Passover if you celebrate! I am not tutoring tomorrow as the 2nd grader is on spring break and her grandma is coming to visit so tutoring update will be in a couple of weeks.

Last Wednesday, we worked on perimeter again using my Perimeter Task Cards. I worked with her on squares some triangles. Some with missing numbers for the sides and some without. She did a great job and didn't miss a single one! I put it with an Easter game board, which doesn't come with these task cards. You can use the task cards traditionally as it does come with a recording sheet and answer key.

Perimeter Task Cards


Next we worked on multiplication by 3 with my Panda Multiplication Race game. I had cards for all of the facts for your students so you can use what facts you would like to use. Some of the spaces have a number on it. You can have them go forward that many spaces or backwards if they land on it for added fun!

Panda Multiplication Race

Then we worked on some fractions with 3rds. We worked on shading fractions with 3rds using my Shading Fractions Task Cards and then did a few with my Fractions of a Group Easter themed task cards. There's only a few of these task cards and you can grab them HERE. The picture takes you to the shading task cards.

Next we worked on Division by 3 using my Division Multiplication Bump Fluency Games. These are not yet available in my store. Be sure to follow my store and you will get an email when I add it to my store!

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 27th, 2018

Wow already the last Tuesday in March! Is it already starting to look like spring where you are?

I had another great session of tutoring last Wednesday with the 2nd grader! We started out working on 4 digit addition using my 4 Digit Addition Task Cards. She did a pretty good job! Like always I put it with a fun game board. These cards don't come with the game board, but can be used like traditional task cards.

4 Digit Addition Task Cards

Next we worked on Division by 2 using my Clip It Bunny Division by 2 Task Cards. I had her clip the answer using the clothespin, but you can have them circle the answer, write down the answer on the recording sheet, write down the answer on a white board, or tell their partner. The cards can also be used for Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, etc. She showed great improvement!

Next we worked on Multiplication by 3 using my Zebra Multiplication Race game. This game you can get for FREE in my Facebook VIP Group! Land on a Zebra you get to go again, but land on a lion it chases the Zebra back to start. Zebras are my favorite animal so I decided to make an easy game with Zebras! I also have a couple sight word games with Zebras in my store.

We finished tutoring working on Perimeter. I found a worksheet for her to practice measuring around with a rule and then adding the sides together. We also used my Perimeter Task Cards that you can see in action from my previous blog post. This time we focused on rectangles with a 2 missing sides. She did great and didn't miss any!

Next we worked on Perimeter using my new Perimeter Task Cards. Mostly just adding the 4 sides of a rectangle, but we did a few with 2 of the sides having a missing number. She did an amazing job and didn't miss a single question! I again put it with a game board that isn't included, but you can use it with any game board or any way that traditional task cards can be used for!

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 13th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! My dog seems to be doing better. She doesn't have a heart murmur, but they still think she has heart disease and is on medication.

Last week, first I gave the 2nd grader another mixture of skills worksheet: adding 2 digit numbers without regrouping horizontally, ordering gram, kilogram, pound, and ounce by smallest to largest and picking one is more than a pound or less than an ounce from a group of pictures. Someday I may put these into a packet.

Next we worked on subtracting across 3 zeroes using my St. Patrick's Day Bugs Subtracting Across Zeroes Task Cards. I love putting task cards with a game board so I used a game board that comes with my sight word game with these cards. Land on a bug go back to start, but land on a rainbow you get to go to the other side. So much fun! She drew little people on the rainbows! She did a great job!

Then we worked on Dividing by 1 using both both types of division. We used my Easter Eggs Division by 0 and 1 Race, which is a FREEBIE! These cards come with the fun game board. Land on an egg with a snake go back to start, but land on an adorable chick they get to go again! She did a super job! If you download the game please show your kindness by leaving positive perfect feedback. Remember it cost me money to buy the clip art and fonts. If you can't use the division cards, you can use the game board with any set of task cards or flash cards!

We finished by using my Multiplication Wheels for multiplying by 3's and did a few more money problems.

Tutoring Tuesday - March 6th, 2018

Happy first Tuesday of March! It is getting cooler again here in Florida. Back to the 60's and 70's after several weeks of the 80's. I would appreciate as many prayers as possible as I found out last Wednesday that my dog has possible heart disease. She seems healthy at home other than a small cough that won't go away, but apparently not as healthy as I thought. :(

Last Wednesday, I first gave the 2nd grader a review sheet I created that maybe I'll put up for sale some day of a mixture of skills they were reviewing in class: Missing Number for Addition, How many quarts equal 1 gallon, How many days in a year, How many inches in a foot, how many feet in a yard, writing dollar and decimal point with just coins, writing dollar and decimal point with dollars and coins, and skip counting by 3's and 4's.

After I helped her with that we worked on missing number (product) for multiplication using my Gymnastics Multiplication Missing Number Task Cards. These are for factors 0, 1, and 2 only. Children can write on the cards if laminated. The game board is not included, but you can grab it HERE with my sight word game. Land on a gymnast you get to go again. She absolutely loved this game! The cards can be used as traditional task cards.

We then worked on more Roman numerals from 50 into the 300's using my Roman Numeral Task Cards. I put these with a St. Patrick's Day game board. Land on a leprechaun go back to start. She wanted to make them good and go again so that is how we played it. The game board does NOT come with these task cards, but it is available in my store. The cards can be used like traditional task cards. So far there are 78 cards!

After seeing she had missed some with the coins and dollars and coins on the worksheet, I ended tutoring doing a several more with her. She did a much better job!
