I would love to use the money game boards (like snakes and ladders) but would prefer a copy that can be printed in black and white. The black squares are too dark to read what's on them and very costly inkwise to print even a set for 1/2 my class. Perhaps the squares could come with a set of directions for students as to what color to lightly color them (ie squares 25 and 30 shade lightly with your pencil: All arrows are to be colored red). This makes the game board more personalized and can also allow kids to practice following directions, before they play the game. I can see sending a copy of the gameboard home and have it be homework for several days (personalized tutoring by parents to reinforce money). Does sending the board home for homework violate copyright laws? I don't want to do that. Thank you for getting back to me. I really like the money concepts this game supports.

These look great. Are you going to make some that match our Aussie seasons & holidays?

Down Under Teacher
Down Under Teacher  (TpT Seller)
Hi Sharon, I've tried to keep them open for everyone (because I don't like making anything that I can't use myself) although I think Autumn/Fall is the hardest to 'Aussie-fy'. Even though 'Fall' is in the title, I haven't used it anywhere in the pack or included any words that are spelled differently (e.g. color). I made this pack thinking that I would use it at the start of the school year so I only included basic addition and subtraction. I plan on making other seasonal packs (which I think will be more applicable to Australian seasons) and holidays as they come nearer.

Thanks for the question, if you need any more information please let me now.

I don't have the means to purchase all of the beanie babies, so I thought I could cut out copies of the pictures, laminate them, and put them on popsicle sticks. Then, my kindergarteners would have a strategy reference with them when they're working on a particular skill. Thank you!

Hi Kelly, I didn't actually look at my old set of cards when I made the Beanie Baby cards up so the wording would be a little bit different. With the beanie baby cards I've added 1-2 dot points to explain the strategy a little more. For example, the original cards would have said Check for Understanding - Does it make sense? and the beanie baby cards say - Checkin' Chicken Reminds us to check for understanding. Point 1: Stop often and check for understanding before reading further. Point 2: Ask yourself 'Who?' and 'What?'.

Hope this helps,

Do you have something like this for 2nd grade?

I'm afraid not, however you could still use the schedule I've provided (or adapt it to your needs). The schedule is available in the preview so it won't cost you anything and you could just use centers you already have that are suitable for 2nd grade.

Hope this helps!

This looks great! Would you be willing to provide this with alternate spellings - color for colour, behavior for behaviours, etc.?

Hi, this pack already comes with both U.S. and British spellings of those words. As an Aussie, I always find spelling "mistakes" in products I purchase from the U.S. so I always ensure that I include both spellings in ALL my packs so that all my U.S. buyers don't have that problem downloading from me!

Cheers

Would it be possible for you to change the wording on Comprehension to "I can understand what I read"(like on your other set of CAFE headers) instead of "I can understand the words"?

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! I’m Kylie and I teach 2nd grade in sunny Australia! I'm in my fourth year of teaching and my third in 2nd grade. I love making games and other activities to reinforce learning in a fun and engaging way. I love sharing, gaining inspiration from fellow teacher and being a part of this wonderful TpT community.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to keep kids up, moving and involved. I use a variety of materials to teach students who have a wide range of ability levels and interests. I like to use games and activities that are hands-on and engaging for students but also encourage learning and hit the mark educationally.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Do 'Teacher of the Year' mugs from students count?! Haha! We do not have district or school-based teacher awards here in Australia!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I started off as a Training Officer and Traineeship Coordinator so I worked with people (from 15 to 55) who were undertaking certificate level study while working. It was great fun conducting workshops, facilitating tutorials and visiting workplaces to conduct training and assessment but I always thought I could do more for them if I had more time with them. So I went back to uni and completed my 4 year Bachelor of Education (Primary).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I'm not teaching or preparing for the classroom, you can find me spending time with my 13 year old son, playing laser skirmish (love it!) reading or updating my blog at http://downunderteacher.blogspot.com/
