Yesterday I talked about being organized. The teacher also had a few things that I loved. The kids today were all about the schedule! I love having a schedule and will write it on the board because I don't like walking around with lesson plans to check for the times.
I find that the kiddos love having a schedule posted because they know what is coming next, there are no surprises, it's a routine, and it feels familiar. Even if the kiddos are in kinder, they can have a schedule with words and pictures, even if there are no times posted.
I wanted to post something that was SUPER helpful to me yesterday. The teacher had a list of names with the kids' pics with them. I was able to memorize a few so that when they came in, I felt like I already knew them :)
She listed their names alphabetically by first name. This would be also great for writing if they want their friends' names.
Now on to my Scoopin' Math. I was inspired by a few classes I've been subbing for lately who are studying fractions, percents, and decimals. Some of those kiddos are not connecting the three together and so I decided to make a beginners pack, mainly focusing on 25, 50, 75, and 100 but I think I threw in a few thirds in there.
I included posters about what each are and 8 problems for each and a final activity/review that combines all three topics. And the theme is ice cream. I am in love with how it turned out.
- 8 fraction problems
- 8 decimal problems
- 8 percent problems
- 3 answer keys
- 3 posters
- 3 record sheets
- Match Up activity
It's at my TN store and I've listed it for $2 :)
