Math Awareness Month Freebies!

Did you know that April is Math Awareness Month?
Me, either!

In celebration, I'm sharing some of my favorite Math posts from my blog....plus I've joined in with a few other teachers to put all of my math products  in my TpT Store on sale for April 1-2!
Click on the pic above for more sale info. Click HERE to go directly to my store.

Now for the oldies, but goodies! Click on each pic below for more info on your freebies!
My kids loved playing Last Man Standing. It's great practice for interpreting place value and is even better when the kids are ready to give the clues!

Simple, but effective! Based on the old Concentration games, Fraction Memory Match is perfect for a math station on equivalent fractions.


Rolling Perimeter is one of my newest freebies, but it's been popular so I wanted to be sure you didn't miss it. Simple, easy activity to practice perimeter.

Have a great Math Awareness Month!

Space Jam Multiplication Freebie!

Need a fun review for multiplication fluency?
Make this freebie, add a timer, and get ready for some fun!

Set the timer for five minutes. Students draw a card and answer the problem. If they are correct, they keep the card. If they are incorrect, they put the card back in the pile. If a Space Jam card shows up, they have to put all of their cards back in the pile! The winner has the most cards when the timer buzzes.

Lucky Sentences for St. Patrick's Day -- Freebie

Can you believe it's almost St. Patrick's Day? Until the past few years, elementary teachers and kids were the only people I noticed celebrating. Lately, though, you see St. Patrick's Day celebrations everywhere.

To help you celebrate, here's a quick activity to put together for a literacy station. Give your students a card with a simple sentence and have them expand it into either a compound or complex sentence.

Just click on the link above for your freebie.

If you'd like a chance to get a free copy of my St. Patrick's Day Lucky Sentences pack I just posted in my TpT store, leave a tip for my readers on how you teach expanding sentences in the comment field below. I'll pick the two most original ideas and send you the entire packet. Please leave your comments by midnight on Tuesday, March 10. Be sure you include an email address so I can send you the pack.

Valentine Divison Scoot -- Freebie!

Are you beginning to plan your Valentine-themed activities with your kiddos?

Here's a great activity to use as either a whole-class Scoot game or in a center for practice in using division to solve word problems.

If you use it as a Scoot game, put one problem card on different desks around the room. Students can work alone or with a partner to rotate through the cards. After they work one problem, they find the next card. For a little bit of fun, add a timer and give them five or six minutes at each card before they have to move on. Give students blank paper to use to record their answers.


If you have some students needing more practice working word problems, punch holes in the cards and put them on a ring. Place the cards in one of your math stations.

Here's Hoping for Some Snow Days!

I'm hoping for some snow days this winter! I love my job, but I love spending time at home, too.

I spent some time this weekend making a multiplication freebie.
My kiddos have always loved playing games if they have to race against a clock to complete a task. Print this off on card stock and add a timer and you've got a math station that's ready to go!
