Hi Barbara,
I think your number of the day packs are such a great resource! I teach preschool and we do a number of the week instead. The skills that I can see in the preview seem to be similar to those that I teach. Would you ever consider making a pack that had a weekly number (1-30) that stretched the whole year? Obviously my kids can't do all of these skills on their own, but I would love to be able to do this as a whole group activity. I think they might look at me a little funny if we were doing scarecrows and leaves in May. ;) I know there are others out there that do the same format as me. Just curious... Thanks for all of your hard work and hours of time in front of the computer. Your love for doing this shows!

Are you speaking if a number of the day packet? I have May (Fiesta), June (beach) and July (camping) already up.

I also have a spring daily common core practice in the works and plan to start a summer (beach theme) common core daily practice.

Are there other beach themed items you would like me to consider?

Hello- It's me again. You can tell that I'm consistently using your product :-) Today was week one day 2 of the April pack. The number was 102. For place value there was only a tens and ones place- any chance you can change it and add a hundreds place? I hope you don't think I'm nit-picking. If you'd like to give me your email I can email you if/when I find something that needs correcting so it doesn't always get posted here. My kids are getting so good at this- I love all the skills that are covered!!! Carol

How much time do you spend on math each day?
April 1, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Mrs Balius
Mrs Balius  (TpT Seller)
My math time is cut up into two time blocks. We spend about 20-30 minutes on the Number of the Day leading into a math mini lesson. Then we go to lunch. We then have another hour to do independent work, guided work in small groups, math centers/math games, addition drill and math notebook conferencing. The format stays the same with variety of activities based on assessment data, etc.

Hope this helps. I have started blogging, and want to create some posts about my math block. Is that something you would be interested in? My block is mrsbalius.blogspot.com

I have been using your number of the day Winter Wonderland and just loving it. I have found a couple of mistakes in Week 4 that you might want to change. The counting to 120 chart has eleven numbers going across rather than ten. In Day 3, the number line is off with the children writing and there is a 64 written. In Day 4, the number between is 72 ____ 73. I totally know how these things can happen but I thought you might want to change them for the next printing.

Thank you,

Hi Barbara. I teach guided math in first grade as well! Do you complete these pages in your small group or with the whole class? Or do you assign these as independent work? They look great! Thank you!
December 2, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Mrs Balius
Mrs Balius  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for your comments! I use these at the beginning of my math block, kind of like a warm-up. At the beginning of the year we do them as a class, and gradually, those who can, complete them on their own. Each month, as new skills are added to the pages, we complete them together, until the students can complete them independently.

I do still complete them as guided practice with some students during small group time. It becomes another resource for checking for understanding, and re-teaching.

I know of other teachers who use them as morning work, or as homework. They can be very versatile. Some teachers are also using them in interactive math notebooks. I am also working on some tweaks to develop them further to make them even more versatile.

Thanks for your questions. You may e-mail me if you would like to talk about this further. I love to hear who teachers are using them in their classes. Also, e-mail e if you have any suggestions!

Buyer re: Number of the Day {Going Back to School} First Grade Math
I saw below that you will be continuing this through the year so does that mean you will be creating winter, spring, end of the year, etc?

Thanks for your question! So far for first grade I have published Going to the Beach (summer between first and second), Going Back to School, and Fall Fun. In the works and being edited are Scary Stuff!, Giving Thanks, and Holiday. I also plan to do a spring series as well. There are also bundles of various products. I have begun the second grade series and may expand to other grades if I can fit it in.

I hope you come back for more!

Do your lessons reflect the new Math TEKS. and if not, are you going to have any new lessons that will?

They generally reflect the new TEKS. I have them and am currently going over them for alignment.

The new TEKS are actually VERY similar to the Common Core Standards. All of my products are aligned with the Common Core.

Thanks for your question! I am currently looking at the new math TEKS and checking alignment.

The new Math TEKS are actually VERY similar to the Common Core State Standards. All of my products are aligned with the Common Core.

Could you make this in Spanish? I teach 1st grade in Spanish. I don't know if there is a way to edit just the text. That way I could just translate it myself as needed. It's my first year teaching first grade in Spanish and all the math has to be taught in Spanish. I would love to buy this product. Let me know... Thanks... Blanca Sanchez

Do you have definitions with the math vocab cards? Or is it just the words on the cards?

Hello, I was curious what application you used to create this? I am a 5th grade teacher and like your design. I am creating a word wall for my classroom. This is my first year as a teacher. I wanted to make my word wall creative...I loved your package but K-3 doesn't apply to me :(..Thank you for your help!

Number of the Day - I purchased and have found typos throughout. I'm sure you know this starting with Day 1- 21 should be 31.

I have also worked in sales and marketing and participate in a variety of musical endeavors.
