This led me to start my first TPT project. I have developed two 6 problem review sheets for every lesson in chapters 1 and 2. I plan on using side A for a quick review before I introduce the day's lesson and side B for homework. This way the parents can refer to side A if they do not understand it. (Side A and B have the same type of problems.)<br /><br />I have chapter 3 almost finished. I plan on doing all the chapters, but would love someone's feedback before I continue. If anyone is interested in giving me feedback, you can preview it at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Donna-Walker-8Donna Walkerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04148517864375314730noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6640221467325248621.post-28782353144041670312013-02-13T15:30:50.498-05:002013-02-13T15:30:50.498-05:00I think I got them for a reasonable price at EAI E...I think I got them for a reasonable price at EAI Education.<br /><br />http://www.eaieducation.com/Product/531509/Double-Nine_Dominoes_Wood_Black_-_5_Sets_of_55.aspxUnknownhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05690231734368308752noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6640221467325248621.post-18043894349512367252013-02-01T19:58:35.185-05:002013-02-01T19:58:35.185-05:00I totally forgot that I wrote this! Haha. I'm ...I totally forgot that I wrote this! Haha. I'm glad we're not the only one who takes that long to teach the math lessons. We're supposed to stick to the blocks we are given, and since we do Go Math plus TC for reading/writing, the teacher I work with cut out centers this year. I am dying. I want to implement these, but I'm only a full time TA in the classroom, so I go with the flow. I got into teaching at the WRONG time, and as you know on Long Island, finding a job is rough!<br /><br />I already have your primary polka dot set bookmarked for my future (if it ever happens) classroom one day, haha. I love them! <br /><br />Make a 10 to subtract drives me nuts. We got many frantic emails and notes from parents that night. One parent remarked "It's not funny! I can't do second grade math!" with a slight giggle/panic. <br /><br />I taught Envisions last year while subbing, and then at the end of the year when I was a TA in a classroom with a teacher who let me teach half the day. After dealing with both, I definitely have to say that I prefer Envisions. Both have their flaws, but Envisions seems to move at a *slightly* better pace. It's similar to Go Math, but I really think Pearson did it better with Envisions. I seemed to have a lot less "Are you kidding me?" moments with Envisions than we do with Go Math.

My math centers really help them with the concepts but teaching a normal math lesson can take up to 1 hour and 45 minutes! Apparently it is a cheaper program than Envisions.

We got Go Math in Roslyn this year for the first time, and my second graders are completely lost with this, since the program assumes they have the background.

I too like using dominoes (especially for fact families). We make edible ones from a graham cracker sheet with chocolate frosting and mini marshmallows. (We are learning "smore" about fact families.)
