Back to School September Math Activities Super Pack Extravaganza!!!

Wow! I finally finished it! I’ve been working on this month long Math Activities Unit for about 3 weeks and it is awesome!

I even took a break in the middle and printed out some of it and let my kids cut apart the pieces and test out some of it. They had a blast!

There is so much in this pack, I’m not kidding when I say you can use it for a whole month! I plan on using it for the whole month of September and I made it to be used as a major part of my math workshop.

The main piece is a set of 1-200 number cards that form the foundation for the math pack. This pack is intended for beginning of the year second grade and in my class I really want the kids to start mastering their numbers 1-200.

There are lots of workpages to go with each skill….

This is just a sampling of the worksheets I included. And notice that each workpage has a journal entry, Activity and Challenge! Can you say vocabulary and differentiation?! What What?!

All of the activities are set up to be used in a pocket chart but you could totally use the floor or a table! Here are a few…

There are also 12 different story problems…

There is a big focus on our campus for Numerical Fluency and also problem solving. I use this model for problem solving….Study, Plan, Act, Reflect! This model helps the kids not just scribble an answer after the problem.

To top it all off…there is a short Unit Test that could totally be used as a pre-test and then compare the measure progress!

Wow!!! That’s a lot of Math!!! You can get this NOW from my TpT store!!!

Get it here!

Have fun in Math this September!



Owls Math Activities & Problem Solving!!!

So here goes my continued foray into creating materials for the classroom! I used my Owls in the Night graphics to create a beginning of the year math station to cover at least the first week. Click on any of the pictures to go to my Teachers Pay Teachers Shop! From there you can pick up these Math Stations for your classroom!

Last time I made a math station pack, I ended up using it for two weeks because the kids really enjoyed doing the same activity a couple of times. This is totally fine with me because it is sort of a pet peeve of mine to spend a lot of time creating something that they use for ten minutes!

Since I decided to make owls my new classroom theme, I thought it would be fun to do owls stations in the beginning before I get into holidays themes! I included 4 activities, 4 story problems that are matched to the activities, recording sheets for each activity, and a skill check assessment.

Since I have a thing about too much paper. I made each recording sheet so it was to be cut in half, so you get two for one. This also makes it the right size to glue into a notebook with room for “reflection” or a “what did you learn today?” sentence or two.

The Skill check is formatted the same as the Daily Problem Solving, so the kids are familiar with the themes and vocabulary. It should also help them feel more successful in the end!
