Second Grade Common Core Math Pack #4

We have been trucking right along in our math class using the common core math packs I have created. It seems as though I can't make them fast enough, but I am managing as best as I can. Last night I finished pack #4 and put it on my teachers pay teachers store for $10. When you're there checking it out, don't forget to check out my first three math packs as well. There will be 14 total, with 4 review packs at the end. Each pack comes with:

*10 common core based math activities
*10 common core based in-class worksheets
*10 common core based skills review homework worksheets  
*10 fact practice in-class worksheets
 *10 fact homework worksheets  
*1 common core skills assessment
*1 fact assessment
*1 math journal (10 lessons)  
*1 Assessment Recording sheet  
*1 Standards hit checklist

The lessons in the pack include: Comparing two and three digit numbers using <, >, =. Creating and interpreting bar graphs (creating a large bar graph by reviewing smaller bar graphs and using the information), three-digit place value, and writing numbers in expanded form. 










I enjoy making these packs and I enjoy feedback. If there are any questions or concerns regarding these math packs, my email is provided below.

Writing, Writing, Writing...

If you're like me, you have a love/hate relationship with writing in the classroom. When my kids are pumped up and into it (writing stories for example)...I absolutely love to teach writing. But for those not-so-exciting writing assignments, I feel like I am pulling teeth to get quality writing out of my kiddos. Because of this, last year I took all of the Story Town (Harcourt) writing lessons from FIRST GRADE and created user-friendly, easy-to-use packets for kids to use and build their writing skills, while still staying with our writing curriculum. I have noticed that lots and lots of people have been using my writing packets (3 packets, 10 lessons each). Since I am teaching SECOND GRADE this year, and now that I have some extra time, I have created the first packet for the SECOND GRADE STORY TOWN WRITING LESSONS 1-10. You can find the packet here.
