It's FIESTA in Texas! Happy Cinco de Mayo

Happy May!

I love May!  First of all it is my birthday month.  My husband loves to surprise me, and now my six year old is getting into the act.  I can't wait.

Second of all May is the month that we celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Texas!  A brief history:  Cinco de Mayo originated as a celebration of freedom and democracy just after the civil war.  It was originally celebrated in the American southwest, not in Mexico.  The date of May 5th originates from the battle of Puebla (1862).  This is the day that Mexican army under the leadership of Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin won victory over the French army, in a most unlikely fashion.  FYI Mexican Independence day is celebrated on September 16.
In Texas, (and I think a lot of places are around the US) May fifth has come to be a fun spring celebration.  Go out and have some fun this month!

My kids are already starting to squirm because we are so close to the end of the year.  We have standardized testing next week, but after that I want to give my kids some fun review stuff to work on in hopes of them not forgetting all that they have learned this year.

I am putting together a set of reviews for the end of the year.  I have just completed the first one based on the first strand of the Common Core Math Standards for first grade.  (1.OA)

It follows the same form of my other teaching materials.  The unit includes guided and independent practice for each standard.  For each topic there is at least one colorful guided practice re-teaching page designed for projection or for small group intervention.

Also included are several printer-friendly (black and white with less graphics) pages for independent practice, to use for small group work or centers.

Here is what is included:

I use guided math in my classroom.  I begin my teaching time block teaching/spiraling math concepts as a whole group, but most of my math block is devoted to guided practice in small groups followed by independent or small group practice, centers and intervention.  Included in this resource are multiple guided practice pages for each topic that can be used for small group work or for intervention.  I have also included lots of independent practice pages with less graphics fro ease in printing.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

I plan to publish three more reviews based on the other three strands of the First Grade Common Core Math Standards.  Watch for them in the next week or so.
