Freebie- Homework/Morning Work

Our school corporation has a homework policy. First grade must have math homework twice a week. Normally I send home math fact practice, however that's not always beneficial for all of my students. I have a few exceptionally high students that know their Math facts forwards and backwards. I find some time to enrich these students. We've worked on double digit addition and subtraction and now I am moving them to rounding. I know a lot of 3rd graders struggle with rounding, so I figured I'd go ahead and get home of my first graders ahead of the game.

Click below to get some rounding freebies- Rounding to the tens and rounding to the hundreds.

Enjoy your last few days of school before Christmas break!!

Helping Others

I love Christmas time... for so many reasons.
One of those reasons is Christmas stories. I LOVE reading Christmas stories to my class. In fact, I think most of our days revolve around different Christmas stories once we are in December.

I read my class the book The Best Christmas Ever. After we are finished reading, they will go back to their desk and write about a time they helped someone. You could honestly use this prompt with a number of books. You wouldn't even have to read a book in order to use this prompt. You could even find a way to use it as a personal narrative.
