Can you count by 2's and 5's and a giveaway!

I think I have mentioned before that we use Math in Focus in our district. There are parts I love and parts I don't. I think the biggest thing is the order in which we teach it. I had always taught shapes and patterns the first month of school. With MIF, we did it right before Christmas break. Like after we learned our numbers to 20. Anywho....after break we begin odd/even, counting by 2's and 5's. The pace calendar for MIF allows like 1-2 days on counting by 2s then switch to 5s for like 2-3 days. Not.so.much. I'm spending a week on both. I created this unit to use with my students for fun games to reinforce these skills. Is this something you can use in your classroom? Go to my store on TeachersNotebook and grab your copy!


During the holidays and between Holly Bloggy Christmas I reached 200+ followers so I decided to do a giveaway too! I'm giving away a $10 Starbucks gift card and a copy of this unit to one lucky follower. Here is how you can enter:
- Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment (one entry)
- Add me as a favorite shop and leave a comment (one entry)
- Leave a comment letting me know what you are teaching in math once we return from break....I'm curious!

Contest will end Friday, December 30th at 11:59p.m. I will announce winner on New Years Eve!
I am really hoping to add more and more items to my store! Thanks to First Grade Parade, I've finally figured out it is MUCH easier to create items in PowerPoint then covert to PDF. Also, if you were a participant in Holly Bloggy Christmas...make sure you link up below and show us what you sent and/or received!

  3. When we get back from break I am teaching....
    place value
    data analysis
    number patterns
    addition/subtraction word problems
    2d and 3d shapes

    or, at least, that's what my pacing calendar tells me I'm doing this quarter!

  18. I teach money when we return!!! :( WHY is that skill so hard for them...I mean it's money--they know what it is, they want it, they need it, they spend it!!!

    Definitely not my favorite skill!!! Not too keen on time either.... :) However, I LOVE regrouping (well except for the first day!)!!!

    My second graders can always use some skip counting practice :)
