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.

Thanks for hoppin' by Hopkins' Hoppin' Happenings!  Keep on smiling!
