Tutoring Tuesdays - September 18th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Just a few days away until Fall/Autumn comes. Many of you will enjoy the beautiful trees with their leaves changing colors. That doesn't happen in Florida! I am jealous. I hope someday to go on vacation somewhere during the Fall to see those beautiful trees.

I started out tutoring reviewing multiplication by 4's using my Multiplication Facts Bump Fluency. She did a terrific job!

Next we worked on shading fractions with denominators of 7, 8, and 9 using my Identifying Fractions Task Cards. Like always I put it with a game board to make it more fun. These cards currently have denominators of 2 through 10. There are 48 cards, 2 recording sheets, and 2 answer keys.

Identifying Fraction Task Cards

We then reviewed fractions of a group by using my Apples Fractions of a Group Task Cards. There are 12 in all, plus a worksheet. She no longer needs them, but you can get the little apple erasers at Target or Amazon and have the children use those to put into groups! After missing the first one as it had been a long time since this was practiced she didn't miss another question!

I introduced rounding to the hundred's place with my Scarecrows Rounding To the Hundred's Place Task Cards. This game comes with a game board. Land on a scarecrow the student gets to go again, but land on a crow and go back to start! It comes with 24 task cards, a recording sheet, and answer key.

Tutoring Tuesdays - September 11th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! I hope those who finally started back with their kiddos had a great first week of school! Today is a sad day in our history. I know many of you remember 9/11. Prayers to all the family members of those whose who lost a loved one on that very sad day.

We started off tutoring by counting dollars and coins using my Counting Dollars and Coins Task Cards. This is also available in a huge bundle! I had her write the amount using the dollar sign and decimal point on a white board. If you would prefer there is a recording sheet that they can write the answers on. I put it with a game board as always, which doesn't come with the cards, but any game board would work!

Counting Dollars and Coins Task Cards

Next we worked on drawing hands on a clock to the 5 minutes. I wrote the digital time and she drew the hands on the clock. The clocks are available from Graphics from the Pond.

We finished tutoring reviewing rounding to the ten's place using my Fall Zombies Rounding to the Ten's Place Task Cards. Students who land on a Zombie get chased back to start! It also comes with a recording sheet and answer key if you prefer to use them to play Scoot or hold them accountable at a center!

Tutoring Tuesdays - August 28th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Those who aren't back to teaching yet probably have about a week left if you are in the United States. Rest up and then have a terrific school year with your students!

I'm now tutoring on Tuesdays, but I will be sharing what I did the past Tuesday. Last week, we worked on 5 digit subtraction regrouping with my Wild West 5 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Task Cards. There are 24 task cards in both color and black and white. It includes a recording sheet and answer key. I always put it with a game board even though the set of cards I sell don't come with a game board. It is just another way to use the cards. I do have cowboy games that include a game board in my store.

 Wild West 5 Digit Subtraction Regrouping Task Cards

We next worked on elapsed time again, but we also practiced drawing hands on a clock to the hour and half an hour. I created a digital and analog clock and laminated it so she could write on it with a dry erase marker. The clocks came from Graphics From The Pond.

We finished tutoring practicing dividing by 2, 3, 4, and 5 using my School Supplies Division Race. This game includes facts to 12 (I just pulled the 2's - 5's). Children who land on any of the school supplies get to go again. This game does come with a game board!

Tutoring Tuesdays - August 21st, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Many more of you have started back to school with your wonderful students. I wish you a great year. Today is my brother's birthday. Happy Birthday to him!

Last Monday, I started out tutoring working on comparing numbers to the ten thousand and hundred thousands place using my Comparing Numbers to the Millions Task Cards. If you laminate them as I did the students can write on the cards with a dry erase marker! It does include a recording sheet and answer key for those that want to hold their students accountable.

Comparing Numbers to 1 Million Task Cards


Next, we reviewed division by using my Apple Division Race game. We worked on dividing by 2, 3, 4, and 5. If the student lands on a worm they have to go back to start because who likes eating worms? haha

We finished tutoring working more on elapsed time.

Tutoring Tuesdays - August 14th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Kids here in Central Florida are already back in school! Has school started where you live? Let me know in the comments!

We switched tutoring to Mondays from Wednesdays last week. I will still be posting a recap of the fun things we did on Tuesday for the previous Monday (the week before) to give me time to take pictures and write the blog post.

This week we started out reviewing multiplication by multiplying 0 through 5 by 11 or 12 using my Back to School Multiplication Race game. These cards have 0 facts all the way to 12 facts. I just print the ones who are working on! It comes with a fun game board.

Back To School Multiplication Race

Next we worked more on elapsed time by the hour and a half when given a clock that has the time to the hour or half hour. We used my Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour Task Cards. I blogged about how I used those cards for Elapsed Time HERE.

We then worked on comparing numbers to the thousands and ten thousands using my Comparing Numbers to the Millions Task Cards. I put it with a game board that is not included, but you can use it as traditional task cards. If they are laminated students can write on them with a dry erase marker. It comes with a recording sheet and answer key.

Comparing Numbers to the Millions Task Cards

We finished tutoring by me asking her how many days in a week, year, how many months, and converting inches to feet, feet to yards, quarts to gallons, etc.

As always thank you for hoppin' by Hopkins' Hoppin' Happenings! Keep on smiling!

The Day That A Ran Away - Book Review and Giveaway

I was asked if I would like to review a new book called "The Day That A Ran Away" and after looking at the information about the book, I jumped at the chance!


The Day That A Ran Away Children's Book

"The Day That A Ran Away" by B. C. R. Fegan is a hilarious story where the teacher, Mrs. May ask a student Jet, why he didn't write down the alphabet? He goes on to tell her why each letter of the alphabet left his page while he was walking to school that day! You'll have to read on to see what happens to Jet after giving her his clever excuse!

The beautiful illustrations by Lenny Wen have things on each page that start with the letter. This is a great book to teach the order of the alphabet, letter identification, beginning sounds, rhyming words, and predicting.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give a book to one lucky reader thanks to Arielle at TaleBlade Press. This giveaway will start on Sunday and end at 11:59pm on Wednesday. Enter below using Rafflecopter. By sharing the giveaway you can come back and enter daily. Click on the above picture if you would like to purchase the book. You will have 48 hours to respond to my email with your mailing address so I can send it to the publisher or I will select another winner.

Mr. Fegan is also the author of the book I gave away earlier this year called "Don't Ever Look Behind Door 32."

Tutoring Tuesdays - July 10th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! I hope those of you in America had a great 4th of July! The next two weeks I won't have a Tutoring Tuesdays post as the family is on a fun vacation!

Last week, we started tutoring working on filling in the missing number in multiplication equations with one of the factors being no more than 5 using my Summer Crabs Multiplication Missing Number Equations Task Cards. There are 24 task cards, a recording sheet, answer key, and fun game board. Land on a crab and you get clawed back to start!

I finished tutoring helping her learn elapsed time to the hour and a half. We used my Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour Task Cards. I had her tell me what time it is and then tell me what the time would be if it was an hour and half later. I first had her tell me an hour later and then add the half an hour. This is a very tough concept and I will continue to work with her on this. Toward the end of teaching her this concept her mom brought out an alarm clock that had the hands so I could turn the clock and she could see the hands move.

Tutoring Tuesdays - July 3rd, 2018

Happy first Tuesday in July! I wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July who live in the United States. It is our Independence Day. 

This week I am just sharing the cards I used during tutoring rather than showing how I use them with a game. Most of them do not come with a game. You can use any of them with any game you have or buy other products in my store that have a game and combine them. 

I started tutoring by introducing comparing numbers in the thousands by using my Patriotic Comparing Numbers in the Thousands Task Cards. There are 24 cards in all and it comes with a game board, recording sheet, and answer key. They are only in color. You can use them like traditional task cards. By laminating the cards, children can write on them with dry erase markers and wipe them when done.  Grab it for $1 on July 3rd and 4th, 2018.

Patriotic Comparing Numbers in the Thousands Task Cards

Next I taught her how to compare fractions with like denominators using my popular Comparing Fractions with Like Denominators Task Cards. There are 24 cards, a recording sheet, and answer key. The cards are only in color, but as you can see print really well in b/w. These can also be purchased as part of a fraction bundle! She did not miss a single question and this was the first time she has worked on comparing fractions! Impressive!!! Just like the others if laminated the student can write on the task cards with dry erase markers!

Comparing Fractions with Like Denominators Task Cards

We finished tutoring by reviewing adding 4 digit numbers by using my new Jungle Animals 4 Digit Addition with Regrouping. There are 24 cards in color and black and white, a recording sheet, and answer key. Some of the questions have no regrouping so students must understand when to regroup and when not to regroup. She also did not miss a question!

Tutoring Tuesdays - June 26th, 2018

Happy last Tuesday in June! Wow time is flying by! I did not tutor 2 weeks ago, but I did last week and had another terrific session!

I started out tutoring with a new skill for her. We worked on place value in the 1,000's place using my Fireflies Place Value in the 1,000's Task Cards. She was given a number and she had to read the question at the top to see if it wanted the ones, tens, hundreds, or thousands place. She did a fantastic job. If you use the board game like we did if you land on a firefly you get to go again.

Fireflies Place Value in the Thousands Task Cards

Next, I had her work on again putting numbers in the 1,000s place in order using my Books Ordering Numbers in the 1,000's. She did a great job, only missing a couple.

Books Ordering Numbers in the Thousands

Then I introduced her to ordering fractions from least to greatest. These cards are not for sale, but you can get them from Jason's Online Classroom. He sells them as clip art. First I had her label each fraction. We worked on halves, thirds, and fourths. Then I had her put the halves in order, then the thirds, and last the fourths. She did a fantastic job!

Fractions

We finished tutoring working on counting dollars and coins with twenty dollar bills. On a white board I had her write the amount using the dollar sign and decimal point. She did a fantastic job especially with counting those twenty dollar bills. I put it with a game board, which is not included with the cards. You can use them with any game board or as traditional task cards. A recording sheet and answer key is available!

Tutoring Tuesdays - June 12th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is out for the summer now in the United States.

Last week in tutoring, I started out tutoring working on multiplying 11 or 12 by 0 through 5 using my Summer Monsters Multiplication Race. The cards in this set have all products from 0 to 12. I just took out these specific equations to work on with her. If you land on a monster you have to go back to start! Tons of fun!!!

Monsters Multiplication Race

Next, I had her work on putting numbers in the hundreds in order since she had a mega ton of difficulty with putting numbers in the thousands in order the week before. We used my new FREE Beach Buckets Ordering Numbers in the Hundreds. Please leave positive feedback and rating for my hard work. Remember it cost me money to purchase the clip art and fonts. She did a fantastic job, so we went back to working on ordering numbers in the thousands using the Popsicles from last week. She got 8 out of 10 right this time.

FREEBIE Beach Buckets Ordering Numbers in the Hundreds


I also reviewed with her how many days in a year, month, week, and some metric conversions. I plan to do that quite a bit especially the metric conversions until she has it ingrained in her head. Then I had her measure a few things on a free measuring page I found on TPT. 

We finished tutoring by reviewing dividing by 3, 4, and 5 using my Unicorns Division Race. Land on a unicorn you get to go again, but land on the rainbow poop and you have to go back to start. So much fun!!! Facts go from 0 to 12's in this game. I just pull the cards that I plan to use for tutoring.

Tutoring Tuesdays - June 5th, 2018

Happy Tuesday! First Tuesday in June man is the year flying by! Be sure to read through the whole blog post to grab your FREEBIE!

This week, I started tutoring reviewing one more with numbers in the hundreds using my one more game in my FREE game Surfing One More One Less Race. I had her roll one die (dice) and move that many spaces. Then she told me what the number would be if it was one more. If she or I landed on a shark we got chased back to start, but if we landed on a surfer we got to go again. She did a great job!

 FREEBIE Surfing One More One Less Race

Next we worked on reviewing ordering numbers in the thousands using my new Popsicles Ordering Numbers in the Thousands Task Cards. I gave her 4 cards (they are all color coded) and had her put them in order from least to greatest. You could have students order from greatest to least, but the answer key is for least to greatest. This skill she had a lot of difficulty with so this week I will have her work on numbers in the hundreds and then move back to the thousands next week.

Popsicles Ordering Numbers in the Thousands Task Cards

We then worked on one less with numbers in the hundreds using my Surfing One More One Less Race game. She rolled one die (dice) and moved that many spaces and told me the number that is one less. She only had difficulty with one on this game. 

FREEBIE Surfing One More One Less Race

We finished tutoring working a little bit with counting money with $20 bills.

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 29th, 2018

I'm back! Happy Tuesday! I didn't tutor two weeks ago, but I was back to tutoring last Wednesday. I can't believe that May is almost over. The kids are out for the summer in the county that I live in.

We started out working on multiplication facts playing a Bump game that I downloaded free from another seller.

Next, I worked on with her ordering numbers to the thousands as she had some trouble with that this school year. We used my Beach Buckets Ordering Numbers to 1,000 Task Cards. I had her order them from least to greatest. That is how I have the answer key set, but you can have them order them from greatest to least if you want. There are 10 sets of cards.


Ordering in the Thousands Beach Buckets

We finished tutoring working on some division playing by playing my Summer Trolls Division Race game. Land on a troll you get to go again, but land on a monster it chases you back to start!

I started out tutoring reviewing Multiplication facts up to 5 times 12 with the 2nd grader using my new Multiplication Camping Race. If the student land on shelter you get to go again, but watch out for the animals they will chase the student back to start. So much fun!!!

Camping Multiplication Race

Next we worked on dividing by 5 with my Division Bump Fluency Game. I am still working on finishing this set. Follow my store to know when it is for sale!
