Multiplication Wizard -- Freebie!

Happy Labor Day!

It's the last day of our Fall Break. If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know that our district is out for a week while our town celebrates the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration and names the World Grand Champion on the Saturday before Labor Day.

I've had a great break...spent a little time at the beach reading, eating, and sunning...cleaned out some closets at home...spent some time with friends.

I'm trying to get back in the school-frame-of-mind, so I thought I'd make a multiplication game. This one is all based on multiplying by multiples of ten.

Click on the pic above to get your game...and please think about leaving a comment. Do you use stations in your math class? Are games a part of those stations?

( TpT Store is all marked 20% off today!)

Here's a freebie for you to give your kiddos practice on sorting multi-syllable words. It's also a good way to introduce suffixes that change the part of speech of the base word.

Free Reading Task Cards

Really? It's only Tuesday? Are you sure?
I've presented three sessions for our district's Core Conference over the past two days. 

I wore heels.
I don't know why.
I love sharing ideas with teachers.
I don't like doing it in heels.

Enough whining.

One of our sessions was on using formative assessments to differentiate the activities in your literacy stations.
Here is a set of reading task cards I thought you might like that I shared with the teachers.

Each is leveled according to whether the student is Approaching (At-Risk), On-Level, or Beyond.

Here is the TREE material for Opinion and Argument writing.  I think you can slide these materials right in to the themes I've posted over the past several days. If I added a graphic to match each theme, I thought it looked too busy. This packet includes small copies for attaching to a student's desk or in a writing journal.

I will work on the material for narrative writing next.

I hope this works for you. Please keep checking back for the narrative info. I have meetings every day this week, so It might be a little while before I get it posted.
