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!

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.

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.

Happy November! I bet those of you up north are enjoying the colorful leaves. Here in FL leaves don't change colors. My oak trees don't even lose their leaves until February.

Last week, I worked with the 2nd grader on some grammar that she was having some difficulty with in school. I understand why as even when I taught for many years we had such little time to teach grammar that we had to fly through it.

We started working on identifying nouns in a sentence using my Nouns Task Cards. We put it with my ghost game board to make it more fun. Land on a ghost go back to start. The game board can be purchased with my Ghost Sight Word Race. There are 24 cards in all and includes a recording sheet and answer key. Some have one noun and others have multiple nouns.

Next we worked on identifying the proper nouns in a sentence and correcting them by capitalizing it using my Proper Nouns Task Cards. This one I put with my Frankenstein game board. If you land on Frankenstein go back to start. The game board can be purchased with my Frankenstein Sight Word Race. There are 24 cards in all and includes a recording sheet and answer key. I had her correct them on a white board rather than use the recording sheet.

We finished by working on picking the correctly spelled plural noun in parentheses using my Plural Nouns Task Cards. I let her pick a game board and she picked the Zombies game board. That can be purchased with my Zombies Comparing Numbers to 1,000 Task Cards. The Plural Nouns Task Cards comes with 24 cards and includes a recording sheet and answer key. I laminated these cards and had her circle the correct plural noun.

Tutoring Tuesdays - October 31st, 2017

Happy Halloween to those that do Halloween activities. I always love seeing the kids dressed up in their cute, scary, and funny costumes. I would love to see what you or your children dress up as. Feel free to post the pictures on my Facebook page. Please no students in your class unless you have parent permission to post them on social media.

I started off tutoring last Wednesday adding 2 digit numbers 3 times using my Vampire 2 Digit Addition with 3 Addends With Regrouping Task Cards. This set comes with a game board that you can use if you wish. If you laminate them there is plenty of room to write on the cards. Land on a vampire you get chased back to start.

Then we worked on comparing numbers to 1,000 with my Zombie Comparing Numbers to 1,000 Task Cards. This one if you laminate it, students will be able to write the greater than, less than, or equal to symbol on the circle. Otherwise, use the recording sheet. We used the fun game board that comes with it. Watch out for the zombies they will chase your student back to start.

Tutoring Tuesdays - October 24th, 2017

One more week until Halloween. Wow time flies!!!

Last Wednesday, I started out working with the 2nd grader on practicing subtracting 9's by playing Pumpkin Subtracting 9 Bump. We worked on the trick I taught her to add 1 to the 2nd digit to get the answer. Example 15-9 = 5+1 so it is 6. Another example 17-9 = 7+1=8. Easy quick way to memorize it. Click the picture to grab it for FREE and be sure to leave positive feedback to show your appreciation. Remember it cost me money to make these free for you!

Next we worked on reviewing 2 digit by 2 digit subtraction regrouping with my Subtraction 2 Digit Regrouping Pumpkin Task Cards. It comes with a game board. Children make their way through the pumpkins and the first to the finish line wins. I laminate them so she can write on the cards. There is a recording sheet and answer key so you can use them with or without the game board. Click on the picture if you would like to use this in your classroom.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.
