Tutoring Tuesdays - October 17th, 2017

Halfway through the month. Where has time gone? Let's get to the tutoring fun from last week!

First we worked on skip counting using my Skeleton Skip Counting Task Cards, which comes with this fun board game. Land on a skeleton and you get chased back to start. The cards are for 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, and 10's. 2's, 5's, and 10's have patterns up to 100 where 3's and 4's go no higher than 30. Click the picture to grab it!

Next we worked on telling time to the hour and half hour. We used my Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour Drawing Hands Task Cards. If laminated children can write on the cards. There is also a recording sheet and an answer key. The recording sheet has the clocks on it so your student can draw the hands on the recording sheet after looking at the task card to see what time to draw in case you want them to turn something in. This game board is NOT included, but you can get it with my Witches Sight Word Race. I used the game board to make the task cards fun in tutoring. Land on a spell book you must go back to start! Click on either picture to grab it.

Last we worked on subtracting 9 using my Trick or Treat Subtraction Race game. The game has subtraction facts to 20.

Tutoring Tuesdays - October 10th, 2017

We moved tutoring to Wednesdays which gives me even more time to get this blog post up. Check out the fun games I did with the superstar 2nd grader that I tutor.

The first thing I did was review before, after, and between numbers to 120 using my Bats Before, After, and Between Numbers Task Cards. I put them with the Bats game board that goes with my Bats Sight Word Race game. Land on an owl go back to start as it eats the bat but land on a bat you get to go again. These cards can also be used to play Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, etc. They come with a recording sheet and answer key. Click on the picture to grab the task cards (without the game board).

Bats Before After Between Numbers to 120 Task Cards


Next we worked on ordering numbers to 1,000 least to greatest, but they can also be used greatest to least. We used my Fall Greatest or Least to 1,000 Task Cards and the game board that goes with it. The game board has spots that tell children to go back to start or go again. Click on the picture to grab the task cards with the game board.

Fall Greatest and Least to 1,000 Task Cards


We ended tutoring with my 3 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards and put it with my Spider game board which can be found on my Spider Sight Word Fluency Phrases Race teaching resource. Children who land on a spider have to go back to start. These cards are great for Scoot. A recording sheet and answer key are included. There is enough room to actually write on the cards. I always give her a dry erase marker and have her solve it right on the card. Click on the picture to grab the task cards (without the game board).

Tutoring Tuesdays - October 3rd, 2017

Wow, it is already Fall/Autumn! It has been awhile since I last posted for tutoring Tuesdays because I didn't tutor for 3 weeks. I last tutored last Thursday so this post will be about that. I also was without power a couple of days due to Hurricane Irma and then had to get my computer fixed to turn on. It's been an adventure but I am same and unharmed. We did not get hurricane winds here on the space coast in Florida. Thank goodness it went west. I still had some damage to the roof and fence, but it sure could have been worse.

Anyway, back on topic I had a great time tutoring the superstar 2nd grader! She is such a smart cookie. We started working on reviewing missing number equations by filling in the missing addend using my Scarecrows Missing Number Equations Task Cards. These can be used as traditional task cards for Scoot or any other cooperative group game or placed at a center. I put it with my Scarecrow Sight Word board game that you get with the sight word race game. Land on a crow go back to start, but land on a scarecrow you get to go again. Click the picture if you would like to use the task cards with your students!

Next we worked on place value to 1,000 using my Fall Monsters Place Value to 1,000 Task Cards which includes the board game. In this game children pick a card and read to see if they need to tell what number is in the ones, tens, or hundreds place. Then they roll one dice or a spinner and move that many spaces. Watch out for the monster as it will send you back to start! A recording sheet and answer key are included if you would prefer to use it for Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, etc. Click the picture if you would like to use the task cards with your students!


Fall Monsters Place Value to 1,000 Task Cards

Next we used a Bump game from my Subtraction Fluency Bump Games to practice 9 facts. I taught her to add the two digit together in the 2 digit number to be able to subtract 9 quickly. So if it is 14-9 add 1+4 to get 5 for the answer 14-9=5. She picked that up really quick! Click the picture if you would like to use the task cards with your students!

We ended with my Counting Coins Task Cards. I put it with my Community Helpers Sight Word Race game board. If you land on a community helper you have to go back to start. The money task cards come with a recording sheet and an answer key so you can use it for Scoot or any other cooperative group activity or for early finishers.

Tutoring Tuesdays - September 5th, 2017

Many of you are finally back teaching the kiddos. I wish you a successful school year!


Last Thursday, we reviewed telling time to the 5 minutes with the amazing 2nd grader! We played Apple Race Time to the 5 Minutes. After telling the time, the student rolls one die (dice) or a spinner and moves that many spaces. Watch out for the worm as it will send you back to start. There is also a recording sheet and answer key so if you would prefer to use them like traditional task cards for Scoot or another game or activity you can!

 Apple Race Time To The 5 Minutes

Then we reviewed comparing numbers to 120 with my Clip It School Comparing Numbers to 120. It is perfect for also working on fine motor skills as children clip the answer. I have also included a recording sheet and answer key if you would prefer to use it for Scoot or another activity. You can also laminate them and have the students circle the answer.

Clip It School Comparing Numbers to 120

Next we worked more on 9's addition facts with my FREEBIE Crayons 9 Addition Facts Race where children solve an addition problem on crayons and move around the game board. Some of the notebook papers on the game board say to go back to start or go again.

School Addition 9's Facts Race

We finished tutoring reviewing putting numbers in order using my Number Order to 120 Task Cards. I put them with a game board that I have as she likes playing games. You can put them with any game board or play Scoot, Quiz, Quiz trade or any other cooperative group game, place at a center, use for early finishers, etc. There is a recording sheet and answer key included!

Tutoring Tuesdays - August 23rd, 2017

Happy Tuesday! I hope each of you got to see the eclipse yesterday. That was really cool! We didn't have full totality but 89% was still awesome!


Last week, we reviewed comparing numbers to 100 using my Comparing Numbers to 120 Task Cards and a game board that doesn't come with the task cards. Usually I laminate the cards but this time I let her write the answers on a dry erase board. It does come with a recording sheet and answer key if you would like to use it for Scoot or any other cooperative group activity. She struggled in school as she hadn't done this skill in several months, but after the first couple of reviewing it she didn't miss another question. She did incredible!!!

Comparing Numbers to 120 Task Cards


Next we worked on reviewing telling time to the 5 minutes using my Racing into The Sun - Telling Time to the 5 Minutes game. This game also comes with a recording sheet if you would like to use it for cooperative group activities.

We finished by reviewing 9 facts using my apple race game that I mentioned previously.

Tutoring Tuesdays - August 15th, 2017

Tutoring Tuesdays is back! The little one was on vacation for a couple of weeks and I was busy setting up a brand new store so I did not write any post on Tuesdays.

We first reviewed 2 digit by 2 digit subtraction regrouping using my 2 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Apple Task Cards. I have her write on the cards as I laminated them. Otherwise you can give them scrap paper. I use the game board that came with it but you are welcome to use it for Scoot or any other cooperative group activity. If a student lands on an apple with a worm they get chased back to start. She decided to put the worms in jail so it was a safe spot. She drew jail bars over the worm. She has an awesome imagination that many kids don't have anymore. I let her as to me it's all about the child learning the skill and she did terrific!

Next we worked more on the 9's addition trick that I mentioned before using this game board that I will be adding to the Primary Reading and Math Bundle. They simple roll one die (dice) and move that many spaces on the game board.

Reading and Math Games Growing Bundle Primary Grades


Last we worked a little bit on 3 digit addition regrouping with my 3 Digit Addition 4 In A Row game. There are 4 different game boards. Children can either share a game board like I did with her and spin two spinners and adding them together. Then they find it on the board and put a counter on it. Get 4 in a row they win! This way they can wind up blocking each other. Or you can give each student a game board and they just try to get 4 in a row with no chance of anyone blocking them.

Featured Freebie Fridays - August 4th, 2017

Happy Friday! Teachers are back to work here in the county I live in and kids return on August 10th. I think the soon to be 2nd grader who I tutor starts on August 9th. So I know many of you are returning to the classroom soon if you haven't already. I wish you a wonderful year!!!

Before I get to my freebie this week I did not post one last week because I have been working on setting up a new store! I currently have 777 products up there as I write this. Kind of funny it wound up all 7's but it did. Maybe it's lucky right? I will have the ability soon to give coupons and also you get reward points for leaving feedback (including on freebies) and sharing the products. That part is in the works. Come be one of my first followers!!! Click HERE. You will need to register an account to even download freebies and get the rewards.

Alphabet Race FREEBIE


FREEBIE Alphabet Race


I used this game the first day of Kindergarten a few years ago when I last taught. ABC Race is a game where students pick a card and name the capital letter. They then roll one die (dice) and move that many spaces on the game board. The first to the finish wins. Very simple game that is easy for Kindergarten students. You can differentiate by having the student tell what sound the letter they pick makes or name something that begins with that letter. Grab it on TPT by clicking the pictures or on Teacher's Dojo by clicking HERE.

Back To School Sale 2017

I am happy to announce that TPT is having their Back To School sale on August 1st and 2nd. There is a change for all future sales. Before most sellers including myself put everything on sale for 20% off and then with the code TPT took off 10% after the 20% was taken off thus you saved 28% (more off bundles). Now most of us including myself will still put everything on sale for 20% off, but TPT's code will get you 5% which is added on to the 20% so you will save 25% off everything. Bundles you can save more on at least in my store as they are already heavily discounted! Use code BTS2017 to save 25%. I will keep my store on sale on Thursday. Click the picture to head to my store!

Tutoring Tuesdays - July 25th, 2017

Last Thursday I had another great tutoring session with the incoming 2nd grader! I will miss her the next two weeks as she goes on vacation. The next time I tutor her she will be a 2nd grader. She continues to amaze me with how much she learns. She knows far more than most incoming 2nd graders having learned how to add up to 3 digits with regrouping (they don't use the term regrouping in her private school as they use traditional terms like carrying and borrowing), 2 digit subtraction with regrouping, time to the 5 minutes, money including quarters, and even multiplying 0's and 1's!

 Silly me when I started teaching her to subtract with 2 digits I started right out with 2 digit by 2 digit subtraction, which she has done excellent on. So I backtracked last week and did 2 digit by 1 digit just to be sure she could do it. We worked on these 2 digit Mermaid Task Cards with a game board, which will be including in my Primary Reading and Math Games Bundle when I get it updated. Grab it now at the low price before I added it and the price goes up. It comes with the fun game board where if you land on a mermaid you get to go again.

Primary Reading and Math Games Growing Bundle


Next we worked on Adding 9 to a number using the board game from my Addition Facts Snake Games. I taught her a trick to make adding 9 even easier for when she does timed tests. Take 1 from the other number you add 9 and that is the ones. Then put a 1 in the ten's place and you have your answer. Example 9 + 4. 1 less than 4 is 3 so the answer is 13.  7+9. Take 1 from 7 and get 6 so the answer is 15. She picked up on it quickly!

Addition Facts Snake Games


We also worked again on multiplying 0's and 1's to make sure she hasn't forgotten the skill with my game Trolls Multiplication Race. Land on a Troll and you get to go again, but watch out for the monsters they will chase you back to start! Their are cards that go through the 10's facts.

Trolls Multiplication Race
