Let's Go Dawgs... I mean Bama!!!!

I have no idea where to start with writing tonight.  I took one day off and now I'm thinking, "Oh, my goodness!  Why do these people all want to follow me?"  I keep trying to think of a funny story and honestly, I can't think past the football game in the background.  I'm a Georgia fan at heart (sorry Dad - it's not my fault), but ultimately I'm an SEC fan!  I like the guy from Hawaii on Notre Dame, but I have to say, I hope Alabama slaughters them.  

Now, changing directions, this week we are working on types of sentences, so I threw together a quick sheet.  If you guys are anything like me, we have the new common core standards, but our old resources don't align.  At the beginning of the summer, I took apart every resource I had and realigned all of my notebooks.  It took 4 days to do, but they are a work of art and MUCH better than a filing cabinet.  However, many times there are only 5 problems on a page or the page is too easy or too complex.  So, now I'm obsessed with creating my own sheets.

Anyway, I'm saying all of that to say I have three new freebies for you.  The first one is a rounding sheet.  Honestly, I'm not sure it's a first grade standard anymore.  I thought it was when I created it, but I've looked through all of the standards and our first grade teacher's guide and I can't find it, so I'm not sure.  I do know the other two sheets are in our standards.  One of them covers true/false addition problems and the other one covers declarative and interrogative sentences plus punctuation marks.  If you like them, CLICK HERE to get them.  


Oh, and for all of my cat lovers out there (See Saturday's post), my hubby has changed my picture on his phone to that picture.  Now, every time I call him, the picture of the cat pops up.  That's okay... I'm sure I deserve it.  I did sneak a boiled egg into his work boot a few years ago ;)

Hope you guys are off to a good week!

  2. Your robot sentences are amazing! I was just thinking that I needed to make a sheet like that. Thanks, I can't wait to use it! Oh, and I am about to teach rounding in the next week or two. It's in our math program (EnVision), and also in my districts pacing guide. We are teaching common core standards now, but I couldn't find it in there.
    Thanks!

    1. Aw! Thank you :) I'm glad you can use both of them :) We do a story about robots in a few weeks, so I'm going to hopefully use them then. The clip art was so cute I couldn't resist getting a head start :)
