Tutoring Tuesdays - February 20th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! You survived Valentine's Day and all the sugar after it! We are just a month away until spring. It already feels like spring here in Florida as we have been in the 80's for a couple of weeks now. I LOVE it!

I tutored on Thursday last week because the 2nd grader was sick on Wednesday. We started out again counting dollars and coins while writing the amount out with the dollar sign and decimal point. We used my Counting Dollars and Coins Task Cards. I again put it with a game board that you can get here. The game board doesn't come with the task cards, but you can use the task cards for Scoot, Quiz Quiz Trade, centers, small groups, etc. There is a list of ideas included with the cards along with an answer key and recording sheet.

After we worked on that skill we worked on Roman Numerals to 30 using my Roman Numerals Clip It Cards. You can have your students clip them or even circle the answer if laminated. They can also be placed on each desk to play Scoot. She did a great job, only missing one. You can check out a picture on my previous blog post!

We then worked on beginning multiplication skills using my Multiplication Equal Groups Groups Task Cards. She circled groups of 2, 3, and 4. The cards also have a few that go to 5 or 6. There are 18 task cards in all.

We finished tutoring practicing multiplying with 0 and 1 using my Presidents Day Multiplication Race. These cards go up to 10X10 and come with the game board included.

The 2nd grader was on top of her game as we had time to do several activities and games last week. We started out working on counting dollars and coins while writing it out with the dollar sign and decimal point. We used my Counting Dollars and Coins Task Cards. I put it with a game board like I usually do. The game board is not included with the set. It includes a recording sheet and answer key so you can play Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, etc.

We next worked on Roman Numbers to 13 using my Roman Numerals Clip It Cards. She knew all but number 13!

We then did a quick multiplication game that I bought on TPT from another seller to practice multiplying by 2's. She only missed 2x0 and 2x1. She did terrific!

Next, we worked on telling time to the 5 minutes using my Telling Time to the 5 Minutes Task Cards. I again put it with a game board. We used my new unicorn game board. The game board is not included with this set of task cards, but the cards come with a bunch of suggestions!

Then we worked on mixed number fractions using my Mixed Number Clip It Cards. Here she was given a circle of a fraction, whole number, or mixed number and had to identify it.

We finished tutoring with a few 3 Digit Subtraction Task Cards that you can see in my previous blog post.

Tutoring Tuesdays - February 6th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Wow, it's already February! I hope those of you who watched the Super Bowl enjoyed the game. I watched the Puppy Bowl instead.

Last week I worked with the 2nd grader more on counting dollars using my Counting Dollar Bills Task Cards. We worked on counting 1 dollar bills, 5 dollar bills, and 10 dollar bills. It also includes 20 dollar bills but we did not get that far. She only missed a couple. I put it with a new Unicorn game board. The game board is sold with my Unicorn Games. If you land on a unicorn you go again but if you land on the rainbow poop you go back to start!

We also worked on counting coins using my Counting Coins Clip It Task Cards. There are 24 cards where she had to find the the correct amount with the decimal point! She did an excellent job and didn't miss a single question! This set also includes 24 cards without the decimal point and just has the cent sign with different choices for answers.

We finished using my Valentine's Day 3 Digit Subtraction Task Cards. We only had time to do a few cards. I put them with the Valentine's Day Monster Board Game, which is not included with these task cards. You can get the game board for FREE. Land on a monster go back to start, but land on a bunny you get to go again!

Tutoring Tuesdays - January 30th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! The last Tuesday of the month. Where has time gone?

Last Tuesday, we started working on reading a thermometer and telling the temperature if it was 5 degrees higher or lower using a thermometer where that counted by 5's using my Temperature Task Cards. The task cards come with 24 where the student tells the exact temperature and 24 where the student tells the temperature if it was 5 degrees more or less. For tutoring, I put it with my groundhog game board that can be found in many of my groundhog products HERE. The game is not included with these task cards. They can be used to play Scoot, Quiz Quiz Trade, etc.

Next, we worked on counting dollars with my Counting Dollar Bills Task Cards. We worked on counting one dollar bills and then one dollar with five dollar bills. The 24 task cards include bills to $20. I put this one with my Bug in My Marshmallow game that can be found HERE. The game again is not included with the money task cards.

We finished working with 1 more or one less using my print and play game boards from my Valentine's Day One More or One Less Centers. In the game pictured students roll one dice and tell what number comes next. There is another game where they roll one dice and tell what number comes right before. Numbers are between 100 and 1,000. Land on a bunny you get to go again but watch out for the monster as it will send you back to start!

Tutoring Tuesdays - January 23rd, 2018

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, 2018

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!

Christmas Lights Rounding to the 10's Place Task Cards


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.
