One of the biggest challenges as a classroom teacher is to differentiate instruction so that you are meeting the needs of all learners - supporting learners who need extra help, while challenging those who are flying along!
Here is one way I have done that in my own classroom – Monster Math! There is something here for all kids!
This is a series of 20 addition worksheets. You can use them as ‘timed tests’ or just as worksheets. The idea is that the child gets all the problems correct before moving onto the next number. I have also included a fun visual component. Print a monster for each child so that he or she can watch it move along your classroom wall. This is a great visual so the kids can see where they are at and what the end goal is.
There are small ‘celebration’ cards that can be printed for each level and sent home as a way of communicating with parents and celebrating each child’s achievements! There are also a series of flashcards for those kids who need that extra practice. Just copy and send home.
Monster Math will get your students excited about math!!!!
