New Products for Math Centers and Upcoming Giveaway!

Image
Thanks to snow we only had school 1 day last week! It was wonderful to get some rest, but boy am I dreading those make up days. :( I've used the time to get organized in my house, my TpT store and my lesson plans and ideas. We will be taking our district mandated benchmark tests this week so I have been looking for a lot of ideas for reviewing equivalent expressions. Here is my latest creation, free for a few days! Click on the image or here to get yours from TpT. 


I made two versions, one already matched into triangles and one scrambled. I prefer scrambled puzzles so that I can get help from my students cutting them out the first time we use them. It took me a while to get to the point where I trust them to cut them out straight. :) I have had very few mishaps and it's worth taking the pressure off myself to get one more thing completed outside of school hours. My kids really do want to help and feel valued when you allow them to. :)

My kids really enjoy using puzzles to practice their math and are much more willing to work on these than they are willing to complete worksheets. Win, win! Thanks to the extra day in the weekend I was able to put together a new one to introduce to my students tomorrow. They're going to be so excited! Now that I have them laminated and cut out I can reuse them next year. I love adding games like these to my classroom, every year I have less to do when I add reusable materials!

I made these a few months ago and forgot about them, woops! My kids enjoyed using these puzzles to review finding equivalent fractions, decimals and percents and were much more willing to work on these than they are willing to complete worksheets. Win, win! Now that I have them laminated and cut out I can reuse them next year. I love adding games like these to my classroom, every year I have less to do when I add reusable materials!

New Products, Saving Paper!

Image
Hello! I enjoyed some snow days this week and used the time to cut up some wonderful center activities I've purchased from TpT. I was very frustrated with how much paper I was having to dispose of and the never ending cutting required!

 I will often take something I've purchased and spend extra time working magic to make more print on a page or to eliminate unnecessary spaces that just end up being cut out and discarded. I found myself needing some additional resources for review and decided to make my own with a focus on reducing waste. Here is my first of the day. I don't know how many I'll get done, I have a very long to do list. :)

The best part? There is very little waste! I cut out several sets to get ready for next week and had only small strips along each side left to discard. Yay! 
What do you do to save paper and materials? Comment below. Have a great week! :)
