Common Core Missing Number Math Game and Much More!


Today we played another version of "Eye Spy" with unknowns, but this time with unknowns is ALL positions of subtraction and addition equations. It's a tricky concept, but my students did pretty well. They quietly walk around and stop at a card with less than 3 people. They write the equation and solve it. Then, they visit another card.  I only did 10 cards today and we'll do the other 10 tomorrow!





Waddle We Learn?



Let's talk about the CUTEST chevron BORDER and LETTERS! I am seriously obsessed with it.  Thank you to Teacher Created Resources!  I really love their new chevron line. Check it out!




How cute are these pennant banners? LOVE!

And another one of my favorites from their chevron line is the computer paper.  I know Natalie will make something adorable with it! Go check it out!!!



And now on to my newest favorite thing (and the envy of all the teachers around me)...my new LOCK SMOCK from Brianna Price.  Our district has required that our door remains locked at all times in case of a lock down (so we aren't in the hall trying to lock up our door and putting ourselves in danger).  But, that means that our students were constantly locked out of our classroom...we tried to use magnet to stop it from "locking", but we were always losing them.  Finally, Brianna saved the day!  This Lock Smock allows us to keep our door locked, but we'll never be locked out.  I can easily unclip the Smock incase of a lockdown drill.  This Smock also makes it SUPER quiet when our door shuts!

Love your sweet lil penguins! Our friends are in need of your eye spy game. Working hard on math facts right now. When 1+1=3 we have a problem. Never in all of our years have we had this answer! Yikes!

Awesome freebie! Sounds like your kiddos had a good time with it. I really love that lock smock idea. It should be adopted in all schools. It's so much safer than having to go out and lock the door from the outside!

Great activities for common core math learning. Learning math can be so frustrating, and not all kids have the same learning style, so it is nice to offer them more than just traditional teaching methods. I really like the products from City Creek Press because they use pictures and stories to keep kids engaged. Here is a link to the site where you can send for a free catalog:
