Tricks & Tips for Teachers 4.16.15

Hello BLOGGY friends!
Welcome to
It's THURSDAY!
I am linking up with Becca @ Foxwell Forest
for 

This week my Tip is for ...
MATH  PRACTICE
I KNOW...ICK!!!!
NO MORE Worksheets!
I can't stand them to do another worksheet!
I don't won't to CORRECT another worksheet!

So HOW do we practice?

In MY classroom...we play SCOOT!
BUT....we don't make a whole NEW game...we just use what we have!

We use...MONKEY MATH!
You can check it out here..

Monkey math practices 
 20 - Grade 1 Math Skills

Right now they are on my wall...

But...when we want more practice on a single skill..
We take them out & 
SCOOT!




Instead of hanging them on the wall (like I do now)...
We now...place them on desks..
use our white boards ( or  lined  paper )...
and we 
SCOOT!
After we do 10-12 practice problems..
we exchange papers  ( or whiteboards) 
 and correct them!
Practice and  math talk 
...music to my ears!

FYI....Monkey Math is for Grade  1
BUGGY MATH is available for Grade 2
