Math Mammoth Light Blue Series constitutes a full elementary mathematics curriculum for grades 1-7.

Some of the main features of the curriculum are:

  • The curriculum focuses strongly on conceptual understanding.
  • Visual models and exercises are used a lot.
  • Mental math and number sense are emphasized.
  • The curriculum is nearly self-teaching for many children, since the full explanations of concepts are included in the student books. Thus it requires fairly little preparation time from the teacher.
  • The curriculum meets and exceeds the Common Core Standards.

Learning about the U.S.A. – State Birds –

Why does each state in the U.S. have a state bird, a state flower or other state selected ‘thing’? As a teacher, I was once asked this very question. I didn’t know the answer but I went looking. This is what I found…It is done to instill a sense of local state pride and patriotism and is a holdover from the early days when states were almost independent countries.

So why have a study on ‘State Birds’? My answer: For the wide range of learning that will occur during such a study! That is why I’ve created a MEGA Bundle of materials designed to provide students with a creative way, an inspiring way, to study ‘State Birds’…

Each state has 14 pages designed for students to write, draw and express what they are learning and/or have learned throughout their studies.

** Cross-curricular learning at it’s best. ** ​

Language Arts: reading, research and writing (Students will be expected to search out informational text to learn about each state bird. Multiple pages are giving for students to report what they have learned. Some pages include sections for drawing. Also included: Pages designed to be used for different age groups.)

Science: Scientific classification (A page is included for each state to list the Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species. Also a full coloring page is included if you’d like students to label the parts of each bird.)

Social Studies: Geography (2 map pages – One to identify the state and one for students to show everywhere in the U.S. the bird lives as well as any migration)

** Designed for multiple levels **

NEW Color & Create a Story Worksheets spark CREATIVITY!

Most children have a natural creative streak but sometimes it is hard for them to get an idea out of their heads and onto a piece of paper. That’s why I’m currently creating my NEW “Color & Create a Story” Worksheets.

These are all designed to spark children’s imagination by providing them a picture on which to base their story. First, your child (or students) will color a picture. Then, they are given space to create a story about the picture!

Here are several examples of my NEW worksheets:
