These task cards have been a life saver. I have a handful of students that are SPOT ON!
Their work is accurate, nice and done quickly. They are also the type of personalities that LOVE an extra piece of work/fun. I copied only 1 of each set ( 12 sets in all), put them on a silver ring and hung them on the wall. These 7 kids have the student booklet to record their answers and now independently complete the tasks. I had a few students ask, "Teacher, how do I get one of those booklets?"
Another student mentioned to his neighbor on another occasion... "I'm going to start working harder so I can get one of those booklets, too!" :)
I don't hide the fact that I LOVE mathematics.
I didn't as a child, but as an adult... somehow I learned to embrace it.
This little do-dad is just that... a fun spin on the 12 Days of Christmas song only with a mathematics spin. This file includes a student booklet and charts for group singing.
Daily 5 has changed my Reading, Writing, Word Work instruction! I love it! My word work consists of 12 literacy centers that the kids must get through each month. ABC Order, Synonyms, Antonyms, Compound Words, Prefix, Suffix, Contraction... etc. We have mini lessons during our "regrouping periods" of Daily 5, but by January, they are on their own. This file contains a hands on activity and assessment for each of the 12 areas. January - June include a monthly booklet for students to complete during their WORD WORK choice.
Beginning December 1st, a fabulous winter file full of amazing products will be available...AND... your purchase helps out our fellow educators who have been devastated by Tornadoes. Many bloggers have jumped on board to assist in the fundraiser. I donated one of my newest winter printables... Brrr... It's Cold. I'm sure you won't be disappointed and I'm sure many little hands and teachers will be grateful for your support and kindness.
I have about 10 kids that I have given the Fall and Winter task card booklets to.
Whenever they have a few extra minutes (because they are so darn smart and fast)... they work on the task cards. They have LOVED them. I put each set (A-L) each on a small silver ring... then hung them on a wall with push pins. It was totally easy and low maintenance but a fun addition.
They've been asking for the "next" set... (after the FALL set) I was hoping to introduce the WINTER set when we were at least experiencing a cold streak... however, it's been sunny and beautiful so they got them today anyways ;)
The January set is being printed and laminated as I type...
I've promised not to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving...however, before I go home from school tomorrow... I'm going to switch out the Thanksgiving Banner in my window for my new Christmas one ;)
No one will see it until after Thanksgiving break...but it will be great fun to arrive to Christmas cheer on Monday morning ;)
