Saturday Swap Day!

 Saturday Swap Day!
Hello Friends,
Today the rush of the Thanksgiving holidays is over and we're all preparing to head into December. To help make the month run a little smoother for you and your students, Latoya, from Flying Into Learning and I have put together a little giveaway fun to help you!
Two friends from Flying Into Learning and two friends from Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas will win Latoya's First Grade Morning Work and my Time to the Hour and Half-Hour Task Cards.

I would like to take a minute to share how great Latoya's resource is for your classroom.
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/SmallBusinessSaturday-Time-Centers-Task-Cards-Printables-Notebook-Activities-1209494
This resource comes with 10 weeks of morning work. Fifty-two pages including 10 problems per page, quick and easy if you need to determine an assessment grade. It covers a variety of first grade skills and including the common core number in each box. 

This resource would also be perfect for the end of the year for kindergarten or the beginning of the year for second grade, depending on the level of your class. The bottom box of each page is an activity for the blank back of the page for your early finishers! Win ~ Win!

I love how the first problem is for practicing letter writing. I use to have my boys and girls circle the letter they think was their very best effort. That way, in one quick repetitive step you have taught them self reflection of their own work.

I like to have a Morning Work Folder that the students know to get out of a class basket or bucket each morning. By having a class routine and training the students at the beginning of the year, it allows for a quiet, smooth transition into learning. This morning routine also allows you a few minutes to take attendance, pass out a band-aid, answer a family member's question, etc. Latoya's Morning Work is perfect to start this routine right from the beginning of the year.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/SmallBusinessSaturday-Time-Centers-Task-Cards-Printables-Notebook-Activities-1209494
The students can keep their morning work and any other unfinished work in this folder until they have an opportunity to finish it. Then at the end of the day, papers get turned in according to your routine and the empty folder goes back into the basket for tomorrow!

Please visit Flying Into Learning to view my resource today and enter to win the giveaway!

As another FUN SIDE NOTE: Latoya and I are also part of a small Instagram hop this weekend and we're giving away a $100 TpT Gift Card! 
Wouldn't that also be fun to win? 
You could buy all sorts of resources, resources, resources for December and the New Year!

You can start the IG hop for either of our accounts! Good luck!

Are You Teaching Equal Groups?

Are you teaching Equal Groups? Pin this post for ideas in using Equal Groups Task Cards for differentiation and small group work. #FernSmithsClassroomIdeas
Equal Groups Task Cards

Balancing concrete (manipulatives) & abstract thinking skills  (pencil and paper) can be quite difficult in the elementary classroom. Not everyone is at the same stage, which is why math centers and small groups at a table with you is the best type of math instruction. However, what is "terrific" and what you can fit into your schedule are two different things! :)

I have a set of Equal Groups Task Cards at TpT that have 36 different task cards, the first 18 ask the students to draw the equal groups and the last 18 ask them to count the equal groups and include a final answer. I have included two different recording sheets, one has #1 to #18 and the other has #19 to #36. If you students are advanced enough to complete all 36 task cards in one day, you can copy the recording sheets front to back for one answer sheet.

This activity can give you a terrific assessment grade for the week or, completely different, you can use the cards to remediate with a couple of students in your small group using manipulates and white boards. The possibilities are endless!
