Fern's Freebie Friday ~ The Difference is Zero! Subtraction Center Game!

Each Center Game File Focuses on One Concept and Includes:
* 6 Delightful themes in full color with student directions included. Teaching the concept in March? December? May? There should be a theme that will work with your weekly/monthly units!
* Over 50 PAGES of printable center games including a variety of different ways to play the game.
* Distinct Cover Sheet to glue on the folders, or place in a Ziplock Baggie.
* Each theme has two pages of Matching Problems & Answers in Color to be cut apart as playing cards. Or use one page as a game board and one page cut apart as the matching playing cards.
* Each theme has one page of student directions.
* Everything also comes in Black and White if you want to save on color printer ink!
** Extra Bonus! A Cover Sheet for your students to organize their own folder for individualize center games.
This center game is designed to be printed, cut apart for your classroom and laminated if desired. It is cute, colorful and is completely designed to be an independently led student activity. EXCELLENT for when the teacher is working with small reading or math groups. It also contains the ENTIRE file in a black and white version so that you can copy some and send it home as weekly homework. Great for the students to cut out and practice fine motor skills as well as reinforcing the math activity of learning the subtraction secrets to "The Difference is Zero!" {"Doubles" Subtracted} for quicker mental math!
Your students will ♥love♥ it!

Back To School ~ CHAMPS In My Classroom 2012 Update!

Easily using a CHAMPS behavior prgram for Small Groups!
 CHAMPS for Small Groups!
My students and I have been living together for ten days, because of CHAMPS, they are so good!
I believe in CHAMPS, it works! I've used it for over four years. Basically if you tell the children your expectations, they will live up to them. Our school is suppose to have the worse kids, I adore them, they behave for me! :) CHAMPS is one of the reasons! When you attend a CHAMPS workshop or read the book there is sooooo much to choose from, it is designed for K -12th and for any class type.


CHAMPS Stands For
C = Conversation
H = Help
A = Activity
M = Movement
P = Participation
= Success!
Well if you teach K to 6th, this is what works for me and it might work for you. I teach two ways in my room, a mini-lesson with direct instruction for about 10 - 15 minutes and then small group center work. So I only have to have two choices for each expectation. I use thumbtacks and the yellow cards are back to back, so while I am reviewing the expectations, I can very easily flip them over.

During Whole Group Instruction
C = Conversation
0 No Talking
H = Help
Raise Your Hand
A = Activity
Listen
M = Movement
None
P = Participation
Everyone {This never changes!}
S = Success!

 During Small Groups
C = Conversation
2 Whisper
H = Help
Ask 3 Then Me {When I am working with small groups and the students are in centers, they need to ask three other students first, then interrupt me at small group. Very rarely will they have to interrupt the teacher. This definitely needs to be role played at the start because you will have some that can't wait to "ask 3!" If three children cannot help the child, then I need to stop and make sure the entire class understands the directions.}
A = Activity
Learning
M = Movement
Restroom {When I am working with small groups the students may not go from center to center, but they may go to the restroom without asking.}
P = Participation
Everyone {This never changes!}
S = Success!
I hope this helps you jump start

Before and After Classroom Pictures For the 2012 School Year!

AFTER: Front & Center of Room, Ready for Meet the Teacher Day
Since I worked Summer School Reading Camp, I was able to keep my room up. Nothing faded and since I really liked the dark blue-light blue-black theme, I was going to use it again this year. It is really hard to make the 1970's brown wood paneling exciting, but here are my before and after pictures as we get rolling this year! 
BEFORE: Front & Center of Room
 
 BEFORE: Back Left of Room
 AFTER: Back Left of Room
Math Center, Math Supplies, Vocabulary Board & 
Gathering Area for Math "Areas of Concern" Board
Vocabulary Board
Math "Area of Concern" Board
I'm going to use this board to spiral and review the areas that our school wide test results show we are lacking in ~ fractions, measurement and geometry.
 BEFORE: Back Right of Room at Front Door
 AFTER: Back Right of Room at Front Door
I got a new {actually old and busted, but storage is storage} cabinet and new posters based on our "Areas of Concern." The bottom six pages are third grade's Common Core Standards in kid friendly language.
 Plants are trying to come back to life....
Not a cook and not a gardener, oh well, acceptance is part of life! :)
AFTER: Back of Room, U-Shaped Table is 
Ready for Meet the Teacher Day.
 BEFORE: Entire Right of Room at Front Door
  AFTER: Right of Room, Ugly Green Shelf. 
Curtain hides the extra TEs & student editions I keep as team leader, etc.
 AFTER: Two Black Shelves 
The cubbies for the red and the blue group.
Treasure Box & Magic Frogs ~ they hold the reward blue and red tickets.
 AFTER: Two Black Shelves For Cubbies
 BEFORE: CHAMPS and Behavior Board, Needing a Pick Me Up! 
AFTER: New and Improved CHAMPS Board!
  BEFORE: CHAMPS
By writing REDO on stuff, I don't get lazy and use it again!!  I remember what I want it to say, but I redo it to look new, fresh, etc.
 BEFORE: Left of the Front of the Room at "Back"Door
 AFTER: Now the Couch and the Computer Areas
AFTER: Vocabulary Word Wall and the Computer Area
 BEFORE: Entire Left of Room at Back Door
BEFORE: Start of Library Fix Up and Restroom Door
 AFTER: Library, Bean Bags & Math Magnets
AFTER: Rest of Library Facing the Couch
 AFTER: My Beloved Elmo, Organized, Untangled and Ready to Use!
 AFTER: My View While Using the Elmo & Restroom
I love that I can face the class instead of the way they were originally installed, with a teacher's back to the class ~ hello...No One Had Asked a Teacher's Opinion!! 
 AFTER: My Desk, Fridge & Micro
NOTICE ~ Sub Plan Folder smack dab on the left hand side of my desk!
The front of my desk is a fractions area, another "Area of Concern."
Well everyone, that's it...it's old, brown paneling, but I love it! My friend in fourth grade calls her portable a LEARNING COTTAGE & so my hubby now calls mine a LEARNING CABANA! 
I ♥love♥ it no mater what we call it!
