Hi! I'm so glad to be a part of this swap again. I am hopping that my post goes a little smoother than last time. Thanks to Melissa for getting everything organized!
So I got to partner with Andrea from Come to the Carpet. She is a fabulous first grade teacher from Alaska.
I loved all of her things in her TpT store and had a very hard time choosing which one for my kiddos to try. But here is what I picked:
When I first looked at it, I wasn't sure it would be appropriate for my kids (since I teach K and have a more challenging group than normal this year). Then I realized that she has blank maps too. So I went ahead for this one. We actually did one of the more basic maps from the pack and they did a nice job.
Here is where I modeled this activity first:
Then I sent them on their way to try it. The only place we had trouble was the +10 and -10. We haven't really practiced that yet. So I had them color in those boxes and we just did +/- 1. Here's my little cuties working:
When I got to this student, she needed help with the +/- 1 parts. I had to show her where while asking, "What's one more than 18? What's one less than 18?"
I loved the idea of a circle map and this pack comes packed with different examples. One of the maps is for addition and subtraction sentences - that would be great for a first grade teacher teaching fact families! Andrea also includes a blank map so you can use it for other math concepts or even other subjects.
So now is your chance to win a copy of this pack. Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win:
