Tutoring Tuesdays - April 17th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Half way through April already. Wow! I hope each of you are hanging in there as you near the end of the school year. I wish your students the best of luck on their tests. Last Tuesday my poor dog accidentally was cut under her eye at the groomer. :(  Next week she will get her stitches out.

Last Wednesday, in tutoring I started out with a worksheet that I will post sometime reviewing capacity conversions, feet to yards, yards to inches, days in a year, etc. We also did some division by 2 and telling if the time was A.M. or P.M.

Then we worked on ordering numbers in the thousands least to greatest using my Smart Flowers Ordering Numbers in the Thousands Task Cards. I simply gave her 4 cards and she put them in order from least to greatest. There are 10 sets of cards in all.

After that we worked on rounding numbers to the 10's place using my Princess Rounding Numbers to the 10's Race. She had asked me to create a princess game so I did just that! She did a fantastic job and didn't miss a single question!

Then we worked on some task cards where she had to name a third of a given number. There were dice on the cards to help her. This is a skill she was working on in school. These cards are not yet available for purchase.



After that we finished by working on giving back change using my brand new Giving Back Change Task Cards. I gave her money manipulatives to help her give back the change. I did them with her as I was helping introduce what she had been introduced to in school. Even her teacher said this is a very difficult skill for 2nd graders. I plan to do a few more with her this Wednesday.

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 3rd, 2018

Happy April! I hope each of you had a wonderful Easter or Passover if you celebrate! I am not tutoring tomorrow as the 2nd grader is on spring break and her grandma is coming to visit so tutoring update will be in a couple of weeks.

Last Wednesday, we worked on perimeter again using my Perimeter Task Cards. I worked with her on squares some triangles. Some with missing numbers for the sides and some without. She did a great job and didn't miss a single one! I put it with an Easter game board, which doesn't come with these task cards. You can use the task cards traditionally as it does come with a recording sheet and answer key.

Next we worked on multiplication by 3 with my Panda Multiplication Race game. I had cards for all of the facts for your students so you can use what facts you would like to use. Some of the spaces have a number on it. You can have them go forward that many spaces or backwards if they land on it for added fun!

Then we worked on some fractions with 3rds. We worked on shading fractions with 3rds using my Shading Fractions Task Cards and then did a few with my Fractions of a Group Easter themed task cards. There's only a few of these task cards and you can grab them HERE. The picture takes you to the shading task cards.

Next we worked on Division by 3 using my Division Multiplication Bump Fluency Games. These are not yet available in my store. Be sure to follow my store and you will get an email when I add it to my store!

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 27th, 2018

Wow already the last Tuesday in March! Is it already starting to look like spring where you are?

I had another great session of tutoring last Wednesday with the 2nd grader! We started out working on 4 digit addition using my 4 Digit Addition Task Cards. She did a pretty good job! Like always I put it with a fun game board. These cards don't come with the game board, but can be used like traditional task cards.

Next we worked on Division by 2 using my Clip It Bunny Division by 2 Task Cards. I had her clip the answer using the clothespin, but you can have them circle the answer, write down the answer on the recording sheet, write down the answer on a white board, or tell their partner. The cards can also be used for Scoot, Quiz, Quiz Trade, etc. She showed great improvement!

Next we worked on Multiplication by 3 using my Zebra Multiplication Race game. This game you can get for FREE in my Facebook VIP Group! Land on a Zebra you get to go again, but land on a lion it chases the Zebra back to start. Zebras are my favorite animal so I decided to make an easy game with Zebras! I also have a couple sight word games with Zebras in my store.

We finished tutoring working on Perimeter. I found a worksheet for her to practice measuring around with a rule and then adding the sides together. We also used my Perimeter Task Cards that you can see in action from my previous blog post. This time we focused on rectangles with a 2 missing sides. She did great and didn't miss any!

Next we worked on Perimeter using my new Perimeter Task Cards. Mostly just adding the 4 sides of a rectangle, but we did a few with 2 of the sides having a missing number. She did an amazing job and didn't miss a single question! I again put it with a game board that isn't included, but you can use it with any game board or any way that traditional task cards can be used for!

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 13th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! My dog seems to be doing better. She doesn't have a heart murmur, but they still think she has heart disease and is on medication.

Last week, first I gave the 2nd grader another mixture of skills worksheet: adding 2 digit numbers without regrouping horizontally, ordering gram, kilogram, pound, and ounce by smallest to largest and picking one is more than a pound or less than an ounce from a group of pictures. Someday I may put these into a packet.

Next we worked on subtracting across 3 zeroes using my St. Patrick's Day Bugs Subtracting Across Zeroes Task Cards. I love putting task cards with a game board so I used a game board that comes with my sight word game with these cards. Land on a bug go back to start, but land on a rainbow you get to go to the other side. So much fun! She drew little people on the rainbows! She did a great job!

Then we worked on Dividing by 1 using both both types of division. We used my Easter Eggs Division by 0 and 1 Race, which is a FREEBIE! These cards come with the fun game board. Land on an egg with a snake go back to start, but land on an adorable chick they get to go again! She did a super job! If you download the game please show your kindness by leaving positive perfect feedback. Remember it cost me money to buy the clip art and fonts. If you can't use the division cards, you can use the game board with any set of task cards or flash cards!

We finished by using my Multiplication Wheels for multiplying by 3's and did a few more money problems.

Tutoring Tuesday - March 6th, 2018

Happy first Tuesday of March! It is getting cooler again here in Florida. Back to the 60's and 70's after several weeks of the 80's. I would appreciate as many prayers as possible as I found out last Wednesday that my dog has possible heart disease. She seems healthy at home other than a small cough that won't go away, but apparently not as healthy as I thought. :(

Last Wednesday, I first gave the 2nd grader a review sheet I created that maybe I'll put up for sale some day of a mixture of skills they were reviewing in class: Missing Number for Addition, How many quarts equal 1 gallon, How many days in a year, How many inches in a foot, how many feet in a yard, writing dollar and decimal point with just coins, writing dollar and decimal point with dollars and coins, and skip counting by 3's and 4's.

After I helped her with that we worked on missing number (product) for multiplication using my Gymnastics Multiplication Missing Number Task Cards. These are for factors 0, 1, and 2 only. Children can write on the cards if laminated. The game board is not included, but you can grab it HERE with my sight word game. Land on a gymnast you get to go again. She absolutely loved this game! The cards can be used as traditional task cards.

We then worked on more Roman numerals from 50 into the 300's using my Roman Numeral Task Cards. I put these with a St. Patrick's Day game board. Land on a leprechaun go back to start. She wanted to make them good and go again so that is how we played it. The game board does NOT come with these task cards, but it is available in my store. The cards can be used like traditional task cards. So far there are 78 cards!

After seeing she had missed some with the coins and dollars and coins on the worksheet, I ended tutoring doing a several more with her. She did a much better job!

Happy Tuesday! Wow, already the last Tuesday of February. Where has time gone?

Last week I started out working with the 2nd grader on 4 Digit Subtraction using my 4 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Task Cards. Yes she is working on 4 digit problems in 2nd grade. She did a pretty good job. I put it with a game board that she chose. This game board does not come with these cards. You can use the cards as traditional task cards. It comes with a recording sheet and answer key.

We then worked more on Roman Numerals using my Roman Numeral Task Cards. We especially worked on numbers in the 30's, 40's and 50's.

I added a spinner that I created that I plan to add as an exclusive freebie sometime soon in my Facebook Group. We again used a game that is sold with other products that you can purchase HERE.

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.
