Math Here, Math There, Math Everywhere: ~ Math Printables Color By The Code Puzzles To Practice Addition And Subtraction Math Skills

~This Unit Is Aligned To The CCSS. Each Page Has The Specific CCSS Listed.~

This set includes 4 math puzzles to practice math skills.

Skills Covered:

~ One puzzle with addition facts
~ One puzzle with subtraction facts
~ Two puzzles with addition and subtraction facts mixed.

This unit would be a great addition to your Dr. Seuss Unit or theme day.

Details Of CCSS Skills Covered:

CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)

20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).

CCSS.Math.Content.2.OA.B.2 Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.

CCSS.Math.Content.2.NBT.B.5 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.

CCSS.Math.Content.3.NBT.A.2 Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.

Set also includes 4 answer keys for the 4 puzzles.

Very First Sight Word Sentences ~ Guided Reading Levels A and B
Sep
30
2014

These sight word sentences are designed to help kids build confidence with early literacy skills. A high level of picture support is provided. Just one sight word is added on each page.

The focus words in this pack are: I, like, my, see, can, the, go, to, we, you, big, is, with, for, he, she, little, have, here, are & and.

Because of the highly supportive format, these sight word sentences can be read during small group instruction, chorally with your whole class and/or in literacy centers.

These sentences are designed to be introduced at school, and then sent home for repeated practice. I encourage kids to color in a star each time they read the page at home, and to return each sheet to me when they complete it. I often offer a small treat when kids return these completed sheets. (If a child does not have the necessary support at home, he/she reads with a partner or parent volunteer at school. However, because these sheets are quick and straight-forward, most of my students do complete them at home.)

Repeated reading of these passages helps students master these first sight words and also develop fluency in reading.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Anne Gardner, NBCT

Very First Alphabet Sentences
Sep
30
2014

Hi, It's the middle of April and I still have a Kindergarten student who needs lots of work with letter identification. He's very sensitive to the idea that his classmates are reading, but he needs to work on letters.

So ~ I created this set of Alphabet Sentences. We are working with letter identification, but he is very excited to be reading a full page of "real sentences."

He begins by finding all the "target" letters on the page and tracing them with a thin marker. (On the c page, he will find, trace and say each letter c.)

I am able to point out the upper case letter at the beginning of each sentence and the punctuation at the end of each sentence. He is able to firm up his understanding of voice to print match and return sweep as we work.

Once he has mastered a letter, I sometimes like to "mix it up" so he reads sentences with all the letters he has learned. To do so, I print the pages on tagboard and cut across to create individual sentence strips. I can then give him a pile of sentences with the letters he has been working on. He enjoys reading through the pile, as he experiences a great deal of success.

We work on vocabulary and initial sounds as I introduce the alphabet sentences. At times, he is able to generate two possible words and then select the correct word based on the initial sound. (This was the case when he came across the picture of the jacket. He first said coat, but then when I asked it he could think of another word for the picture that starts with /j/, he was able to come up with jacket.)

When he comes to a word that will be new vocabulary for him, I simply tell him the word and have him clap it with me. We look at how many claps (syllables) the word is and how long the word is.

I'm finding this Alphabet Sentence series very useful, as it helps this student experience a great deal of success. In the fall, I plan to use these sheets as I initially introduce letters.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

:) Anne Gardner (NBCT, Literacy)

*** This set includes a page for each letter except for x, y, z. I have combined the sentences for x, y and z onto one page. A parent letter explaining how to support students as they work with these sentences is also included.

This emergent reader, “Let’s Plant” is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut it in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The 13 pages include a title page “Let’s Plant” then each of the remaining 12 pages contains black and white pictures at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture.

This emergent reader focuses on a variety of sight words including: will, some, in, the, get, my, help, me, with, is, pretty, are, too, of, and like.

Look at the preview to see each page included.

Here are the sentences for each page:
Page 1: Title: Let’s Plant
Page 2: I will plant some flowers.
Page 3: I will plant some flowers in pots.
Page 4: I will plant some in the ground.
Page 5: I will get my bag.
Page 6: My gloves help keep my hands clean.
Page 7: My tools help me dig.

Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page to add details. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.
