Teaching Math Lessons:
I tried out Daily 4 Math and really enjoyed it, but when I took my Winter MAP tests, my math scores weren't where they should've been (Reading scores were fine, Daily 5 Reading works like a CHARM). After that, I decided to change my math lesson structure!
During every single math lesson, we do three different types of teaching: whole group, partners, then individual work.
We start working through problems as a group, they work on their problems along with me on the board, then we split up and work with manipulatives and white boards with our partners. Finally, they take all our lessons learned from that day and apply it to their workbooks by themselves.
I have seen a great change in their math scores and understanding.

This was one of my first products on TPT and I'm pleased to reveal its new updated look.
Kids in Action:
Here are a few of my kiddos doing some double digit subtraction games!
Letting them get down on the floor in center or partner time makes the world of a difference.
These two games are part of my Double Digit Subtraction Center pack!
