Don't be surprised if you end up with many buyers from Alberta! Thanks so much for giving me the gift of time to teach instead of having to reinvent resources! You ROCK!!!

I finally found it again and while it is the most expensive TPT purchase I have ever made, it is by far the MOST THOROUGH. I can't wait to use this with my students. So great!

On  March 23, 2013,  Katherine H. asked:
Hi Shelley,
I love this mental math package and it has been great to have in the classroom. In the related facts page where the students write the subtraction facts to match, the bottom right has 0+7=10 and 7+0=10. Was there a page done with a correction on it? Thanks so much!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 25, 2013Shelley Gray answered:
Hi Katherine! Yikes! That must have been a total oversight on my part. My family is just in the process of packing our house up and moving this weekend, and my external hard drive is already packed in a box somewhere. Do you mind if we get this sorted out as soon as I get moved into our new house? If you could email me at shelley_gray_@hotmail.com and then I will let you know as soon as the edits are done. Thanks so much!

Have a great week,
