This cute little Tooth Tally SMART Board file is a fun way to bring some authentic data into your classroom. It is part of my SmartBoard Math Calendar for Grades 1-3 set. When students lose a tooth, they drag an infinitely cloned tooth to either the boys’ or girls’ side of the page and update the total. This provides opportunities all month long for comparing teeth lost; boys vs. girls. The second page in the file is a place to record monthly totals, which could then be analyzed and graphed. The third page where you can make a graph, if desired. It is a blank template so you can make a variety of graphs. I cloned the teeth on this page in case you want to make a pictograph with each tooth representing a certain number of teeth lost.
If you enjoy this freebie, I would love feedback! Also, check out the complete calendar math file in my TPT store, as well as my other SMART Board products.

Fortune Teller activities, or Cootie Catchers in the US, are a great childhood game remodelled to test mathematical skills. Check out our blog post (link in document) for further information. In this cootie catcher there are eight questions on finding the nth term of linear sequences and some non-linear, differentiated to three levels (easy, medium and difficult) and a fourth pot luck section. It comes complete with instructions, ideas for stretch/challenge and two blank versions for challenging pupils to create their own.
This product is a lesson plan and instrumental piece written in a “non-music reading” approach for the song, AMERICA. It is not meant to be an accompaniment for singing but rather the entire melody and accompaniment is written in order to be played so that it may be performed, whether in the classroom or for a program.
While music theory is taught and reviewed, this approach gives students a sense of accomplishment in learning to “read and perform” in a short period of time. Students enjoy this feeling of “playing in an ensemble.”
The product includes:
• Lesson plan
• Written music and words
• Words only with rhythms used in the piece
• Individual parts for Tone Chimes or Resonator Bells (G4 – D6)
This product is FREE! Hope your students enjoy playing and performing it as much as mine did!

There are 4 cards for each vocabulary term for differentiation. Select 2, 3, or 4 cards as best suits the students.

Capitalize on your student’s interest in the monthly book club order! Cut apart these cards, fold the direction tent, put out some extra copies of the book order and you have an instant high-interest center! Most activities focus on literacy skills, but there are a few math activities as well.
An answer sheet and center sign are also provided.
Directions: Cut apart the number searches so each student gets one-fourth of the page.
Choose a number you want students to find addends for. Write this number in the blank center box. Students can find addends vertically, horizontally or diagonally. (I usually keep the middle number between 6 and 20.)
You can give each student a different number search (to discourage copying) OR you can give each student the same number search to encourage collaboration (or competition!)
You can also give different students different numbers in the blank middle box to meet their developmental level.
Blank sheet, examples of student work and directions included.
