My last attempt at embedding this survey came out messy (it published differently than the preview). Please click the button below to take a super quick 5 question survey that will help me improve my blog. Thanks!
I’ve put together some puzzles to help kids become more familiar with the hundreds chart. I want my kids to be so familiar with the hundreds chart that they can make one by themselves on scratch paper during a test, and can also identify patterns in our base-10 number system. I’ve made a series of puzzles that increase in difficulty.
As standardized testing draws near, it’s time to review! I made this blank clock worksheet so I can draw in the hands to review whole hours, half hours, to the minute, etc. depending on the grade I’m teaching. When making materials, I try to make them transferable between grades when possible. I’ve made 2 whole sheet pages and a half-sheet.
I’ve seen this idea many times before, but I’ve most of the pages I’ve seen are too “cutesy” to get away with in 6th grade. I made this one that’s pretty standard and has enough space for kids to adequately explain themselves. Although kids don’t like this kind of assignment, it’s where the standardized tests are trending towards. The more practice kids get, the better prepared they’ll be. I recommend doing a problem everyday that focuses on the topic you’re teaching, so that by the time testing rolls around, your kids are used to these kinds of questions.
If you’ve never heard of BrainPop, you’re missing out! It’s a cool internet resource with games, review videos and other stuff for kids. There’s a paid membership available, but you can find tons of stuff for free without it. There are many free, animated movies (available for all content areas) that seem to appeal to kids. many of the review videos include a cute story line and dialogue between Tim and his robot friend, Moby.

The following worksheet will help kids review their understanding of numbers by coloring in ten frames to represent numbers (20 or less). This page would be fitting for kindergartners or struggling first graders.
