Tutoring Tuesdays - January 23rd, 2017

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great Monday.

Last Wednesday, I tutored the wonderful 2nd grader. I started out reviewing 2 digit Subtraction and also a few cards for 2 digit Addition. We used my Snowman 2 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Task Cards and Snowman 2 Digit Addition Regrouping Task Cards. We especially worked hard on the Subtraction ones with a difference of 1 digit in the ones place like 8 and 9 or 4 and 3. The board game I used with her is NOT included with the task cards. The board game comes with my Snowman Sight Word Race game.

We spent the last half of tutoring again working on 1 More or 1 Less. We used my new Valentine's Day One More, One Less Race game from the centers pack. I wrote One's, Ten's, and Hundred's on a white board and had her draw to show how many one's, ten's, and hundreds. I then had her show one more or one less and circle groups of ten and move them over to the next place or cross out a ten or hundred to borrow 10 tens or 10 ones. I used this strategy to hope that helps her understand the ones where carrying or borrowing would occur if writing it out as a math problem. This does come with a game board. Plus some other fun centers.

Tutoring Tuesdays - January 16th, 2017

Welcome back to Tutoring Tuesdays! After a couple of weeks off of tutoring I tutored last Wednesday. I hope each of you enjoyed your extra day off this week celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

This week we mostly worked on 1 more or 1 less to 1,000. I focused mostly on numbers where the hundred's or ten's place changes as that is where she has difficulty. For example what comes after 299 or 349. What comes before 500 or 750. We used my new Numbers to 1,000 Penguins Race. As she showed me again if the kids write really tiny on the cards it will fit the numbers, but I recommend using a white board or the recording sheet that is included. It comes with a game board or you can use it for Scoot, Quiz Quiz Trade, etc.

That took most of the hour. Then we worked on measurement to the nearest half inch. I planned to work on the nearest quarter inch with her, but her mom told me she had just had difficulty with half inch so I used these cards for half inch instead. The answer key that comes with my Measurement to the Nearest Quarter Inch Penguins is for quarter inch, but use it as you see fit. I made them both with the box in case you want to laminate them and cut them out for a mini center or small group or without the box to be used as a worksheet. You can download this for FREE by clicking on the picture! Did I say FREE? Yup! Please leave positive feedback if you like this center/printable. Remember it cost me money to create this for you as I pay for the clip art and the fonts. Thank you!

Tutoring Tuesdays - December 26th, 2017

I hope those that celebrate Christmas had a wonderful Christmas!

I won't be tutoring the next two weeks while the wonderful 2nd grader enjoys her vacation, but be sure to hop back to my blog this Thursday and January 1st for some awesome deals!

One thing she has had some difficulty with in school is counting by 1's from a given number to 1,000 and counting backwards from that number so I created these Numbers to 1,000 Bug in my Marshmallow Before/After Numbers to 1,000 Task Cards. I didn't think it was possible to write on them even if laminated as I had to make the spaces small to create this center. Well the 2nd grader showed me it is possible if you write really small. Otherwise, they can tell their partner the answer, write it on a white board (which we started doing) or write it on the included recording sheet. Since Christmas was near I used my Reindeer game board with it, but it comes with the game board pictured with bugs in the marshmallows. Land on a bug go back to start! So much fun! I will be working more with her on this skill especially where she has to write what comes next after 199, 299, 399, etc. and counting backwards from 200, 300, or a ten like in 230, 280, etc. Those were the tricky ones for her. She will get it though with more practice!

After playing this one I worked on groups of a fourth with her using these Snowmen Fractions of a Group Task Cards. She circles how many are in the group and then tells me the answer. If your students have trouble I suggest using manipulatives and 4 cups and have them divide them into 4 cups. Target has cute snowmen your students would love in their dollar section.

We finished with answering questions on a graph that I found on TPT. Another skill she's been working on.

Tutoring Tuesdays - December 19th, 2017

Happy Tuesday! Everyone should be headed out on winter break soon or those in Australia, New Zealand, etc. heading on summer break. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas that celebrates this wonderful holiday. Happy Holidays to everyone else.

I started out with the 2nd grader reviewing adding 9 on a freebie I found on TPT. I forgot to take a picture of that. She had to try to get 3 in a row before I did. She is doing a great job memorizing her addition facts!

Next, I introduced her to a new skill rounding to the 10's place. We used my Christmas Lights Rounding to the Ten's Place FREEBIE. She had some difficulty as many students do, especially the first time learning it. I showed her for a number like 64 on a number line that the 4 is closer to 60 then it is to 70 so you round down to 60. After showing her a few examples she seemed to get it! This is a FREEBIE! Watch out for the white light bulb it burnt out so you must go back to start! I did not put a question on each card so you can use them for odd/even, what number comes next or before, mentally add 10, pick 4 and put in order, etc. They can also be used as traditional task cards. Click the picture to grab for FREE and show your kindness by leaving positive feedback. It cost me money to make it free for you!

We wrapped up tutoring working again on 2 digit subtraction with regrouping. Thankfully she is in a private school and does not do Common Core so we can work on them in the traditional way. She doesn't even call it regrouping. She has been taught it is called borrowing like I was taught when I was a kid in school! We used my 2 digit Subtraction Christmas Task Cards. These are traditional task cards and do NOT come with a board game. I however, almost always put them with a board game to make it more fun. You can purchase the task cards by clicking on either picture.

Tutoring Tuesdays - December 12th, 2017

Happy Tuesday! Just a couple of weeks until Christmas for those who celebrate! The kids are getting restless so check out some of the fun things I did in tutoring that you may want to use in your classrooms.

First we reviewed nouns using my new Winter Activities Nouns Task Cards! This new set includes 18 task cards and a fun game board. Land on a child doing a winter activity and children get to go again! So much fun. Of course the task cards can be used in traditional ways as well like Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, etc.

Next we worked on plural nouns with my new Plural Nouns Christmas Task Cards. This set doesn't come with a game board, but I put it with a fun game board anyway as that is a fun way to use task cards during tutoring or in the classroom at a center. This set includes 24 task cards, a recording sheet, and answer key, and all the sentences have to do with Christmas.

We finished with reviewing nouns and verbs using my Nouns and Verbs Task Cards. This is a big set of 48 Task Cards, recording sheets, and answer key. It does not come with a game board, but I again put it with a game board to make it more fun in tutoring.

Tutoring Tuesdays - December 5th, 2017

Wow, it is already December! I hope each of you had a great Thanksgiving break and had a blast shopping until you dropped at the many stores and perhaps my little online stores. 😀

Last week, I started out reviewing 2 digit subtraction with the amazing 2nd grader. We used my new Christmas Trees 2 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Task Cards with the game board that comes with it. She did a great job!

Then we reviewed fractions with my new Ornaments Fractions of a Group! I brought out cups for her to put counters in them to help figure out the fraction of the group, but she didn't really need it. You can have the kids use those two colored circle counters or buy little erasers. Target, Amazon, etc. has cute little Santa ones that would work great with this activity. It includes a worksheet.

Tutoring Tuesdays - November 21st, 2017

Two more days until Thanksgiving here in the United States. I hope each of you has a happy Thanksgiving that celebrates this holiday and enjoys your time off work.

Last week, we reviewed nouns. I gave her a practice sheet and she had some trouble circling many pronouns instead of nouns. So I added some cards to my Nouns Task Cards and let her pick a game board. The additional cards will be added soon and when they do the price will go up. We used my pumpkins game board that can be found with my Pumpkins Sight Word Race.

Nouns Task Cards

Then I checked to see if she remembered plural nouns. Again, she had forgot. These skills just aren't practiced enough in school due to time. So I reviewed with her using my Plural Nouns Task Cards. I added some new ones to this set as well. We used the game board from my Fall Monsters Place Value to 1,000 Task Cards. Land on a monster go back to start!

Plural Noun Task Cards


After I rechecked her using a practice sheet and she got them all right!

Tutoring Tuesdays - November 14th, 2017

Happy Tuesday! Thanksgiving is getting close. I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall/Autumn weather.

Last week, I worked on a skill the 2nd grader told me she was working on in school. She has to solve two addition equations with 3 addends and then compare the two. So I created this FREEBIE for it called Turkey Thanksgiving Equations Comparing Numbers Task Cards. I used the game board with her as she loves games, but you can use it for Scoot if you prefer or any other cooperative activity. Click the picture to grab it for FREE and leave perfect positive feedback to show your thanks!

Next we reviewed Odd and Even Numbers using my Squirrels Odd or Even Task Cards. These come with a fun optional board that of course we used! The child can simply say if it is Odd/Even like I had her do, underline the answer on the card if it is laminated or placed in plastic sleeves, or use the recording sheet provided.

We finished tutoring doing a little bit of 2 digit Subtraction Regrouping with my Turkey Thanksgiving 2 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Task Cards. These come in color and b/w. We used the same game board as above which is not included. You can get the game board for free though with the comparing number task cards above! Click on the picture to purchase the task cards.
