Formal/Informal Language -- Freebie!

We've been wanting a snow day, and we got a snow week! I've done a little bit of school work and a lot of Netflix! (Just when you think you feel sorry for Don Draper, he does something to make you throw up your hands again!)

Here's a freebie for you on identifying formal and informal language from my latest packet on Penguin Chick, compatible with the second grade Journeys reading textbook.

Just click on the pic above to get your freebie. 
And if you don't mind, leave a comment with your ideas for teaching students to identify formal and informal language.

Happy Snow Week!

Valentine Math Quick Writes -- Freebie!

Here's a variation on a Math Quick Write activity in my new packet. Students draw a card, set a timer for three minutes, and write as many addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems as they can that have the answer listed on the card.
My TPT store is on sale through midnight tomorrow, so it's a good time to get twenty percent off on any of my products you have on your wish list.

Valentine Divison Scoot -- Freebie!

Are you beginning to plan your Valentine-themed activities with your kiddos?

Here's a great activity to use as either a whole-class Scoot game or in a center for practice in using division to solve word problems.

If you use it as a Scoot game, put one problem card on different desks around the room. Students can work alone or with a partner to rotate through the cards. After they work one problem, they find the next card. For a little bit of fun, add a timer and give them five or six minutes at each card before they have to move on. Give students blank paper to use to record their answers.

If you have some students needing more practice working word problems, punch holes in the cards and put them on a ring. Place the cards in one of your math stations.

Here's Hoping for Some Snow Days!

I'm hoping for some snow days this winter! I love my job, but I love spending time at home, too.

I spent some time this weekend making a multiplication freebie.
My kiddos have always loved playing games if they have to race against a clock to complete a task. Print this off on card stock and add a timer and you've got a math station that's ready to go!

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!)
