Math Test Prep, Daily 5, and more

Hello fellow educators! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I went to the mall today and got some pretty sweet pink jordan kicks :) I went with my boyfriend Mike, and he was jealous since they are his favorite brand of sneaker.. I just decided to treat myself since I haven't in such a long time!

I am going to be moving into my new apartment at the beginning of June.  It's crazy how excited I am and it feels like a whole new start :)
I found these on-line and thought they were very cute to buy for my longer closet-- if you like them and want to buy them, they are on ebay from now 2 for 18 bucks! Click the pic!


My school introduced me to the Daily 5 reading program and I absolutely love it.  I feel like with the combination of them making their own independent choices, engaging mini lessons, conferences, and guided reading groups, I don't know how I lived without it!

My coworker and friend Second Grade is Splendid has created AMAZING references for Daily 5! If interested in the program or would like to improve and enhance your teaching with it, please visit her blog:  You can also check out a few of her previous Daily 5 posts..




Also, a website that both of our second and third grade kids love to go on is abcya.com.  There are a lot of fun word work and math games that they REALLY could play hours on! Check it out --


HOORAY! My Common Core Math Printables are FINALLY finished! It is not as long as I wanted it to be, but my hands are cramped and tired.. I am very proud of the final product though with cute fonts and pictures :)
HERE ON TEACHERS NOTEBOOK AND HERE ON TPT!!!

  5. Wow, Laura, this is great work! Just wrapped up a 2 - day 'training ' on the CCSS - M & was shocked at the lack of materials for classroom teachers who need to implement the standards. Your worksheets are just the trick! Teresa Kelley - Brooks mtkelleyb@gmail.com

  7. Great activities...I think it is fair to say we do a lot of test prep using old tests, but your formatting makes the activities look more like valuable learning opportunities. Love it!
