Feeling Better and Getting Lots Accomplished!

I hope all of you had a great weekend . . . I put myself in a better mood and tried to get lots done!  I worked outside for a while (FINALLY a beautiful day here!) and got lots of little things done.  I was able to get TWO sets of word problems set to put in my stores--my students have been doing LOTS of word problems lately!  I love to watch how much better they have gotten at tackling the unknown.  I am working on an organization system for myself (insert sympathetic smile here . . . ) so that next year I can have all these problems printed, cut, and ready to access at any point.  Got any suggestions?

Anyhoo . . . I love writing word problems, and I know not everyone does!  If you are looking for more word problem resources, I'd love for you to take a peek at some of mine!  I have finished the first 4 sets and have 4 more in the works.  Let me know if you can think of a "need" that I haven't thought of--but coming soon will be some mixed computation problems, elapsed time problems, and decimals!

Here are the ones that I've already published!














I hope all of you have a restful, relaxing Sunday.  I am going to try to tidy up around here and do some lesson planning!

  1. These look beautiful! I can't wait to go check them out! I'm so glad that you had a wonderful day outside. You should come visit and do my yard... I'll pay you back with delicious food and drinks!

  2. We're mostly lucky here in Alabama with the weather thing. Thank goodness since I'm sooooo cold natured.

    I sure do wish you taught 6th grade because I might be teaching 6th grade math next year-for the 1st time. YIKES!

    These word problems look fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Shannon! I appreciate your kind words--and it sounds like you are a little anxious about teaching 6th grade math! Just remember--the CONTENT is changing but the kids aren't...good teaching is good teaching whether they are 8 or 12 . . . once you get the content under control you will love it!
