Featured Freebie Fridays - April 28th, 2017

Happy Friday to everyone!!! Today's freebie is a new one that I made this week to use for tutoring. Adding and Subtracting With 3 Numbers Task Cards.

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. Children have to pay attention to the signs to know whether to add or subtract each number in the 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. I will share how I used it on Tuesday on my blog! Be sure to click the picture to grab it for free and leave positive perfect feedback. If you find a problem just let me know and I will correct and you can redownload it. Follow my store so you don't miss any more freebies!

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.

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.

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.

Where The Wild Things Are Book, Song, and Video

One of the most popular classic children's books is "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. This great book helps spark children's imagination.

Did you know that this classic book is a song and now has a music video for it? That's right The Learning Station just released a video for their internationally hit song "Wild Things". This is a fun brain break song with incredible graphics. Children will love doing the fun movements that the wild thing makes. Children absolutely love Freeze Dance songs and this is a freeze dance song! The song is featured on the hit CD "Literacy In Motion" by The Learning Station. The hit CD also includes songs like "Five Little Monkeys", "I Know An Old Lady", "Green Eggs and Ham", and many more!



"Where The Wild Things Are" is also now a movie! It would be great to have children read the book, watch the movie, and listen to the song and then compare and contrast them!



There are affiliate links included for the movie and book. It doesn't cost you a penny more.
