## Don’t Let the Pencil Craze Get to You!

Are pencils driving you crazy?

Students not having a pencil?

Losing them? Breaking the tip?

The pencil craze got to me too!  It doesn’t need to!  During my student teaching we had cups with pencils at each group that we sharpened every morning and ensured there were plenty in each cup, which was great!  That was in first grade. Over the years, I became use to about 2-3 students per class not having a pencil, therefore, I always purchased a box or two at a time and handed pencils out to those students.   This year was a little different for me and the pencil craze got me!  So many lost pencils, broken pencil tips, or students just didn’t have a pencil.

I felt pencil crazed!  A solution must be found!!!

After much thought I came up with my “Pencil Station”!

## March into Eggstravagant Math….

Enjoy a great activity I’ve completed with First Graders & Middle Schoolers! Every year around spring break I’ve enjoyed executing this wonderful fun egg math activity with my students.  There’s minimal prep time and materials for this activity – you will only need plastic eggs, paper for math problems or task cards already printed with answer key, a shoe box, and of course, candy or treats for students.  The students only need paper and a pencil.  Every year all students became very, very involved with this lesson!  Read more on how I executed this Eggstravagant Math Activity with my students!

1.) Begin preparations.
I put together a sheet of math problems or task cards that are numbered.  I typically always utilized task cards for students to review what has been taught all year that I want students to review.  You may also utilize math problems related to the current curriculum you’ve been teaching.  Cut task cards or printed math problems apart into one problem per small sheet of paper.  Have an answer key printed with the numbered problems – you’ll need this the day of the activity.  This activity may also be completed with any subject being taught!

2.) Put together materials.
Place the individual math problems or task cards into a plastic Egg.  They may be folded if you need to.  Make sure you have enough eggs for students.  I typically have double the eggs than the amount of students I teach.  You will, at minimum, need the total number of eggs to be the total number of students you have in your class.  I always based the number of problems and eggs I had on the ‘fastest working’ students I had and the number of students I was teaching.  It’s better to have too many math problems and eggs than not enough.  I wanted them to work through the whole class time.  Fill all of your plastic eggs with……  Read More at www.MMooreEducationalResources.com

## Multiplication Modeling!

Multiplication Teaching Activities that help students transition to Middle School Math

A fantastic Multiplication bundle of activities that are excellent for students in 4th – 6th Grade. It helps students transition into middle school and learn the various methods to multiply.

Over the years, I learned that it is a huge transition for students from elementary to middle school with basic math skills. In elementary school many students are taught various strategies and methods to add, subtract, multiply, and divide.

Yet, when the students get to middle school they need to be strong in the algorithm method of math skills. For this reason, I believe it is great to utilize the various strategies and assist students to making the transition to solve multiplication problems which is why this product was created.

Engage your students with multiple multiplication activities that include visuals, hands on tasks, and more!

Enjoy a Multiplication Card Game – Great in Stations.

Or a BUNDLE of Multiplication Activities!

This complete bundle of games, activities and stations is a great resource to meet common core standards and engage students!

Included are:
Colorful Engaging Graphic Organizer for interactive notebooks,
Guided graphic organizer,

## Use this excellent Decimal Lesson to teach or review operations with decimals!

My students loved the simplicity and color coding in this math lesson.

More details about how I have used color coding with students learning math skills is described in more detail in the ‘4 Ways to Engage Students in Learning’ Blog.

Perfect for Interactive Notebooks!

This lesson was created for students who struggled to remember the rules of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals when they were first learning this concept.  After students completed the graphic organizers, I allowed them to use the same color pen or colored pencil, to complete decimal problems.  Addition of decimals was completed in red, subtraction in green, multiplication in purple, and division in orange.  This assisted their learning and remembering the rules with decimals.  I hope you enjoy this FREEBIE as much as I and the students I created it for did.

## Featured Seller

Hello from North Carolina!  First, let me thank you for taking time to learn about me.  Below are just a few tidbits about me and my life.

I’ve worked with Special Pre-K through 8th grade over the past 8 years with the past 2 years teaching in Middle School (6-8 math and science) in North Carolina. Other experience includes ~ Student teaching in 1st grade, 10+ years experience as a Designer, and 15+ years experience in Management.  The experience I’ve enjoyed the most has been teaching and seeing my students succeed.

Being a mom, teacher, and licensed educator has assisted me to find various ways to reach students so they understand what they are learning!

What do you like best about teaching?

I enjoy creating tiered lessons for students of all levels to learn a task while working collaboratively. Captivating student’s interest is the first step in teaching any task.  By incorporating my creativity, I’ve found many students become more engaged in lessons while meeting standards set in the educational field.

My favorite TpT product is the ‘Fractions {50 pages ~ complete Bundle of Activities, Tasks, & More!}’ because it offers handouts, printables, graphic organizers, number lines, circles, task cards, challenge games, hands on student centered lessons with art, and team building all in one package! This bundle I utilized in a 5th grade classroom. My principal loved my ‘puzzle fraction activity’ that is also included in this package. You can get it here ~ Moore Resources Fraction Bundle.

What advice would you give to someone who may want to become a seller at Teachers Pay Teachers?

I am new to Teachers pay Teachers and the social media. Therefore, it is hard to offer advice at this point since I’m still learning. I would say it does take a lot of time and effort, yet, it is worth it posting and sharing lessons and materials you’ve created and used in a classroom for students! The best part so far is sharing far and wide excellent resources for students to learn! If I can help teachers and students, that is fabulous and the main reason I’m creating and posting my lessons.

What do you like best about being a member of The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative?

I have to say that I was very nervous at first joining ‘The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative’ and skeptical, yet, I am learning so much and enjoying the experience! This is a great group of professionals working together to assist educators and students that I am excited to be a part of! I am looking forward to a great year working with the ‘best of the best’!
