Math and Reading Station Ideas

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a fabulous week!  I wanted to quickly post about some fun math and reading stations you can do during the's cheap and quick!!! I love those two words!

I tend to get my best teaching ideas in the morning, my brain is just like, "OHH, that would be an awesome idea!".

I decided to pick up some leaves at dollar tree. Now these leaves where still on their plastic little branch, but I quickly cut them off with a scissor and got to working.

For these activities you will need:
-Sharpie (any color)
-Dry erase board (optional)
-Students ;)

I'll let the pictures do the talking...

You can have the students put them in alphabetical order!

Dual Language Teachers(DLT): Write syllable and have students create words!

Make sight words and the kids have to read them! Place in alphabetical order for a challenge...*NOTE* Not in order in this pic!

DLT: Put syllables together to make words!

Base ten and comparing numbers!!!!!!!!!

Addition with base ten and whole numbers. You can even have them write subtraction on their white boards!

Addition continued!
Aren't these ideas just so simple and easy to create!!! I know there were times where I spend hours upon hours thinking of workstations for my kids!  I'm all for cutesy stuff on paper, but kids need tangible items and to talk to their peers when they're working in small group.

I hope someone got something out of this!!! Please let me know if you would like to see more ideas like these!  I LOVE workstations!!!!!!!!!

I apologize for the glare, that's my dry erase side on my makeshift black board! HA!

If you'd like to know how I created that, let me know!!!!!! Instructions are super easy!!

Good night!

Second post in a week!

Hi guys!  Told you I would be better at this blogging thing.

I start working on a syllable package for you all, but I needed to take a break and work on something fun for the month of October.  I just love October, the fall, Halloween, crisp air...need I say more?

Anyway, when I was teaching, I would always struggle to find cutesy things to make reading more fun.  I went ahead and made graphic organizers for the month of October. My goal for these graphic organizers is to review concepts and expand on them as the school year moves on.

I hope that you will check it out and see if it's something you can use in your classroom.

I have made both and English and Spanish version of this product. First three comments in either language gets it for free!

Please specify if you would like it in Eng. or Span and leave your email address please!!

It's been a while...and I mean a while!!!!!!

Hi guys! Well, it sure has been a really long time since my last post!  I have a lot of catching up to do but I will briefly summarize it in bullet points as to cut to the chase of this post, ha ha!

- I got engaged September 20, 2015
-I had a great school year but decided not to return.
-I didn't return because my fiancé lived in Boston and that means I would have to move.
-I left Texas at the end of July and had all the emotions going.  Happy to start my new life but sad to leave my mom, friends, teaching buddies, and my school behind.  Texas will always have a special place in my heart.
-Moved to the Boston (still getting used to's already cold)  I'm orginally from Jersey, so I should be used to this...but no, the cold never gets easier.
-GOT MARRIED!!!!!!! On 8/27/16  The wedding was beyond my expectation.  We kept it simple, which was perfect for us!  Once I get pictures, I will upload some on here.
-Went and came back from my honeymoon.  We went to Riviera Maya for two weeks, it was hot and I got a really nice tan.

That pretty much sums it up. LOL!  Now, I'm back!  My hubby, Aaron, has really spoiled me.  I'm going to be staying home for the time being so I can focus on my Teachers Pay Teachers business and try to grow a little family.  All in God's hands!

Okay, back to business...I have decided to post my first item as a married woman ( I like the sound of that) to be a November reading workstation.  For the time being it's in Spanish only.

These station games are meant to be taught to your students at your guided reading table after you have met with all students.  Then you would place it into the station for the following week.

I have included all directions on how to play in the file. :)
