Another Freebie

Type of Sentences Use as a single page or cut them as flashcards to help students learn the 4 types of sentences. You can also get the single page poster size at my TPT store:

Almost a third of the school year has already past! This has been another challenging year with two classroom reorganizations in less than 40 days of school. Now I have 24 eager first graders, 22 of them are English language learners in early stages of language acquisition.
As we are learning types of sentences, I created this single page poster to rhelp them remember each type of sentence and its proper end punctuation.
Download it for free from my TPT store

You can also get the poster size cards for a super cheap prize. Thank you for your support!

Roll a Word, Write a Word

More Phonics practice with this fun activity. Teachers write target words on index cards, for example I am reviewing the short vowel sounds with my First graders. I make one pile with words for each vowel sound, I've also added a column for sight/high frequency words review.
Students pick, read, and write one word from the piles. The first to complete the worksheet WINS!
I've also included a blank worksheet for targeting different sound patterns.

Short 'a' Word Families

While enjoying this long weekend, I decided to share some more files with you. I've created these short "a" review cards to help my students practice their phonics skills. You can decide to use it as a whole class activity or assign it as an independent workshop activity. The cards could also be printed on card stock and laminate for reuse. For my struggling learners I assign them to work with a partner in finding, writing, and reading the words.
Let me know how other ways would you use in your classroom!
Happy Teaching! Happy Learning!

Math Freebies

Hello Everyone,

We have been in school for a week now. I've made these math worksheets to introduce the conception of addition. My students love them because they not only get to play with dice, draw, write, and solve their number sentences but afterward they get a chocolate chip cookie. Enjoy!

The implementation of the Common Core Standards, across the country,  give teachers new challenges in helping our learners how to best accomplish their learning goals. One strategy that I have used in the past, and which can be easily implemented as early as first grade, is the use of the SQ3R strategies. In a nutshell, SQ3R is a study guide for readers to best accomplish their reading assignments. To help my students I use this template!

Do Your Best on the Test!

It has been a while since I last posted! Changed schools, grade level, new program, getting ready for common core standards, etc. etc. This has been a challenging school year, and I can't believe that's almost over...My students will be taking their state standardized tests this week, so to motivate them I created this bookmarks. I thought I share it with you. So glad to be back!
