Just Published ~ Color By Numbers Divide By One

 Color By Numbers Divide By One By Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Available at TeacherspayTeachers.

Just published and oh so adorable! This resource contains three color by numbers, a little boy, a little girl and a cat. Every resource in my Third Grade Math Unit Seven has a "Friend" theme, with the friends looking for animals, zoo animals, jungle animals, pets, I've mixed it up for all sorts of cute, consistent variety. This resource also contains three additional pages with just math problems for you to use for morning work, homework, bell work, seatwork, quizzes, pretests or post-tests. The first one has math problems for dividing by one in order, the second page has math problems for dividing by one in mixed order and the third page has missing number problems for dividing by one.

I liked to organize my students' work with pocket notebooks, very inexpensive and easy to store in a basket on the center of their tables or in their desks.  You know how you get a phone call or someone comes to your door and you lose complete control of the class? 

NO? Me neither, because I would keep some high interest sheets in their folder and when "put your heads down for a few minutes" would just NOT be appropriate, tell them to get their folders out and they can work on their color by code pages. You look good, you can talk to the adult at the door, or the principal on the phone, the class is well behaved and they are STILL actively engaged in learning. Win-Win!

Bulletin Board Trim Tip

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas Bulletin Board Trim Tips for Back to School.
Bulletin Board Trim Tip That I Wish I Had Known Sooner!
Each year I pick out one color and I use that trim for the entire room, yes, the entire room! Your students and parents will love what you put ON the bulletin board. They will not go home thinking, "That Mrs. Smith, she used all red trim this year." 
When you use one color for all your boards, you will never run out of one little, last piece. If a student trips and grabs the board, ripping some off of the bottom, you will have back up trim left over!

No stress of running to the store right before school starts because you ran out of a certain pattern for a certain board!

PS. The green index cards in the picture on the board reminds me what I want to put there. Back to school is so tiring, some mornings I would walk back into my room and think...Was that a math bulletin board? Was that going to be a word wall? By writing it down quickly on an index card I could finish what I started the next day! :)
You have enough to worry about during the first week of school, I hope this tip helps! :)

Are You Teaching How to Use the Break Apart Strategy For Place Value?



The Break Apart Strategy For Place Value

Breaking a 2-digit or larger number apart, or ungrouping the number, is a strategy that helps students see the value in place value. The tens place is not just a 4. It’s value is 40 or 4 tens. The more mental math tips that students have in their tool kit of skills, the easiest each step of the harder math skills become.


One of the best ways to each this strategy is with base ten blocks. I teach my students a "banking method" I'm taking a ten and I'm going to the bank and returning with 10 ones. It is a lot of fun to model it in the beginning, taking your ten piece and walking over to another table to trade it out for 10 ones. Later as they are practicing and reviewing this skill by themselves, it is wonderful to hear, "I'm taking these three hundreds to the bank..."

I like base ten blocks that are all one color, that way the students don't get confused with trading "red" for "green" instead of the skill of trading ones for tens. The above picture is a wonderful set at Amazon that are magnetic for your board or an independent center. 


Another great way to practice is with dice, specifically place value dice.


Students can roll their dice at the same time and the winner is the one with highest number. They can play to ten points, or if you have a few minutes before lunch or dismissal, play the lightening round... winner needs two wins. By having the students check each other's dice, there is more mental math going on in a short period of time.









More Matching Resources for Your Lessons
For each unit, I stick to one color to make it easier for the teacher to make, sort and store the lessons each year. For each section of the lesson I try to use the same adorable student clip art. That way, indirectly, the children know the task cards, the color your answers printables and the center games are all focusing on the same skill.
