FREEBIE!!! Test Prep Worksheets


We've all been prepping for testing all year long. Just the other day, one of my kids had asked that one question all teachers get asked at one point or another, "Why do we need to know this?" Before I answered, another student spoke up and said "It's going to be on the test, duh." That just really can get to me sometimes. I really don't like having to prep so much for a test that isn't truly going to show the intelligence of a child. There are so many things that can affect a test result. You have students who have test anxiety, or they may not take their time or care for that matter. Then in the end, all of this is reflected on you the teacher. To get off my soap box now, I'm offering another morning work FREEBIE. If you're in need of some 3rd or 4th grade math review in multiplication, adding and subtracting multi-digit whole numbers, and word problems, check out this limited time FREEBIE

Have a great week!

Center Ideas for a Large Class...with a FREEBIE

This year has been a great year, but I seem to consistently struggle with my group time because my class is so very large! I'm used to my fourteen little babies from last year, but it just doesn't work as easy with thirty kids in my room. I've gone to other teachers classes to see how their groups are ran and I've borrowed an idea from a fellow educator that I hope will successfully ease our group transitions. Of course, this teacher only has fifteen kids, but I still hope to give this idea a try. This will also work well for subs because they will be able to see where we are for that day.

My group board is very cute and this sample below is the one I borrowed the idea from, but I only have a picture of a group board completed by a guy teacher, he's an awesome teacher, though.





Here's a FREEBIE to get your group board started just like ours! Enjoy!
