I am baaaack!!!!

I am back, school is back, and so is the famous TPT Back to School Sale!

I am so sorry that I abandoned all of you for the summer!  However, I am back and ready for the new school year!  I spent the summer working horse shows in Colorado. It was amazing!  The view was unbelievable!  Pictures will be added soon!

I ended up doing a number of custom orders for TPT this summer.  I am excited people were so brave and asked if I could help them!  Many of these custom orders came about because of my center signs.  It seems like teachers are not only using them for centers, but also general locations around the room, and even as a visual schedule!  I love your creativity!  Make sure you check out my center signs if you don't have them yet!


Don't miss out on the famous TPT Back to School Sale!  I am offering 20% off everything Sunday and Monday and TPT is offering another 10% off by using promo code BTS13 which means you will get 28% off the original prices!  Now is a great time to scoop up everything you might need to get your year started!

Engage NY - Devil's Advocate

Engage NY Math is quickly becoming a hot topic across the country. NY Department of Education developed curriculum to support Common Core and published it online for free. Our district has adopted the math portion. I would like to play devil's advocate and see what everyone thinks about Engage. Pros:
~It is free online
~It dives deep into numbers, both composing and decomposing and makes our kiddos think differentlyCons:
~It is only available online which means everything must be printed, no materials can be purchased pre-made
~ Each lesson is an hour long of direct instruction
~ The first grade lessons include a lot of papers, typically three double sided pages each day if you do the homeworkQuestions:
~ Does it say anywhere that it is research based?
~ Why hasn't a publishing company picked it up? Post your thoughts in the comments.

Favorite Board Games For Math

I don't know about you, but I love board games!  I grew up playing cards and board games and building puzzles with my family, and those are some of my favorite memories.  You know that I also love technology, but sometimes, it's nice to unplug.  Here are a few of my favorite games to use in the classroom for math.  This list is constantly growing, so keep your eyes peeled for another post in the future.

Chutes & Ladders This is one of the first games I introduce in my classroom.  Kiddos love the idea of playing "games" at school.  Chutes and Ladders is setup like a hundreds chart and the perfect way to get kiddos familiar with the layout of the chart.  Students learn to take turns and ease into math centers in my room.
Connect Four This is a great game to build your math center routines and procedures.  Students are learning problems solving and creating strategies while cooperating with others.  To add a little more math to it, use a p…
