PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Spice up your calendar math with Math Madness aligned with Common Core for first and second grade. Daily practice of "calendar math" skills is a great tool. Get your students recording and mentally participating in the actions of mathematical thinking. This is a move away from just having responses to a series of questions and patterns.
Math Madness includes 49 math skill cards at various levels for first and second grade. It also includes 25 different recording forms for students. There is great flexibility in how you can use the Math Madness skill cards.

The Common Core Standards were written and developed by The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers. © Copyright 2010.

This is probably one of my best purchases from TPT. It fits in perfectly with Common Core and Math Talk. Student leaders led the class in solving two or three problems on the Math Board each day. So many options so I could switch problems frequently. Love it!
On  July 30, 2013Ms Smarty Pants  answered:
Awww...This is the best feedback I have ever gotten. You made my day! I am so happy that it is a product that works for you and your class.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  September 19, 2013,  Jolene S. asked:
Do you bind these into math journals or just give the students one page for the day?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 19, 2013Ms Smarty Pants  answered:
Hi! We are fortunate to have a district print shop. So I pull the skill sheets I plan to use for the month. I usually do 5 to 10 of a page, depending on how much practice they need. Then I send them to print shop and have them made into a booklet. My team teacher puts them in a page protector. Her students use dry-erase markers and just wipe it clean after the review. =)
n/a
On  September 19, 2013,  Jolene S. asked:
Ok, sorry. I am trying to wrap my brain around how I want it to look like before I take the plunge. We have a print shop too so that is helpful to know. When you make the booklets, do you place all 5-10 of the same skill pages together and then put the next 5-10 of the following skill, etc. (does that make sense?) Or do you do one page of each skill and then repeat?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 19, 2013Ms Smarty Pants  answered:
I group them together. For example, I want to focus on the date, place value, even/odd, money, time, and double digit addition. I pull that page and we practice for a week or 2. It just depends on how fresh the skills are. This time of the year, I am doing 2 weeks at a time. Then I switch 2 of the 6 skills for the next 2 weeks. So i leave 4 skills the same. Does that make sense? If you alternate the pages, then you have to change out your teacher cards every day too. You can really do it however you are comfortable. It all really depends on how quickly the students pick up the skill and how much practice they need. Ask away, I don't mind. :)

Does this include a pacing guide for implementation of the various skills?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 27, 2013Ms Smarty Pants  answered:
Hi Katrina,

I did not include a pacing guide for the various skills. After some research, it was obvious that every district (and sometimes the schools within) create their own pacing guides. On our team, we use this as a review of previous skills taught or when we went to slowly introduce a new skill.

Thanks for asking!

I am trying to get familiar with all of the pages in this wonderful product. I am looking at the greater than/ less than page, and the signs seem to be going the wrong way. Could you let me know how you use the greater than/ less than and odd and even pages?
thank you

On  July 5, 2012Ms Smarty Pants  answered:
Oh my goodness! I am embarrassed!!! I will fix it as soon as I get home!!!! I am so sorry!!! I will let you know as soon as I revise it. Thanks for letting me know!
UPDATE: FILE HAS BEEN REVISED. PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD. SO SORRY!
With the odd/even pages, I just write in a number on each of the boxes. The kids circle whether it's odd or even. =)
